    Hi all!    Grado's Canadian retailer wants 85$ cdn + shipping for the repair. Are there better alternatives out there for that price range?   I have a soldering iron coming in to reterminate 2 pairs of Yuin pk3, a Blox and a pair of Portapros; will that give me enough experience to...

    I'm considering buying headphones that cost a decent sum of money for the first time now. I was looking at HD 558s because they seem to get recommended a lot here and the open style's conferring a large sound stage seems like something I would like, especially when gaming or listening to...

    Yuin PK3 - A modest review

    I've been searching for a pair of earbud-style cans for the past few weeks after I got my Zune 8. I've owned a pair of Ety ER6i's for about 2 years and love them to death, but I'm missing some of the warmth and "fun" that I get out of my Grados. So a trek down to Jaben and Uncle Wilson and...

    How do the ECCI PR200s compare to Yuin PK3?

    I have a set of Yuin PK3s and have grown to love their warm, natural sound.    I have been trying to find a pair of affordable IEMs that will roughly match their sound. Open, natural, warm, a bit of bass (but not gobs of it)   For some reason the ECCI PR200s caught my eye on Jokers...

    Has anyone bought a pair of Pk3's lately? I just received mine today and am a little suspicious of the plug and cable. They look quite different from the ones I saw here.

    Found these "Do-It Yourself" Yuin PK3's on eBay and my question to you is: sketchy, or legit?

    Someone posted a link to these in the PK3 appreciate thread but no one's replied, so I'll ask here. There are these PK3's that are apparently legit, except the seller has added a shielded cable. Considering I'm new to this whole audiophile world, I'm completely confused.   From what I've...

    MX 580 after PK3?

    I recently bought a pair of PK3's from a store, and have been really, really impressed with them. However, I did find the earbuds to be a little to mid heavy. Should I move on to the 580's or will the difference be not worth the cost? (I live in Thailand, and thus I buy from a specialty store...
