Hmm, I don't understant how you can say that 38s has better low than PK1. For me it's much quite the contrary.
PK1 is the best king of bass earbud (in term of quality, control and quantity) that I ever listened.
Same about echo thing on female voices, no problem here.
Maybe you picked a bad PK1 pair? if you comes one day in south of france, I will be pleased to let you try my pair, which have now over 1500+ hours, and sound his best, I'am pretty sure you will change your mind.
Btw, why not adding my 38s review into first post ? are you adding only positive reviews into first post ?
i agree with your review as well, i think the TG 38s are good buds for the price, ofcourse they are much better than stock eabuds you get with your phone or ipod or watever, but they do not by any chance can compete with
the high tier earbuds, like Blox. PK1 i have never bought actually because i decided to go for the blox and boy im not sorry a bit! i am not sure that as of today(2014) pk1 are still the king of buds like they used to be but i never
listened to them so idk. i would advise you to try BLOX, they have many good reviews here and they were a huge step for me from the PK2.
following this thread from the begining there were many negative reviews, though the positive and the extra positive mostly came from the same direction, it felt almost like we, or should I say I, were drivento love and buy them no matter what.
and so i did buy 3 pairs of TG38s and one of JL1 which turned out to be TC100, which sounds exactly the same as the TG 38S to me- crap.
i do sense there is a bias here in the thread, and i hope my feelings wont be turned to accusations by certain individuals.
