Ooh, you've got my attention now. I look forwards to seeing a more thorough review!

If only they didn't have j-cords... ughh.

I hate j-cords too. I guess I'll pass on this model and go to the PK2 with the y-cord! I am starting to hate my KSC35's for on the go listening.

from my limited use (a couple of times at the nyc meet and a couple of times at the Columbia U meet) of the PK-2s. The Pk-3s are much less detailed and have a smaller soundstage but the PK-3s are half the price.

and if you dont want the ksc35s, you know where to send it to! (ME)

Well, for one, I think they look pretty goofy with a big wire dangling around the back of your neck. I think y-cords are a little cleaner looking. And I also can't stand having that wire rubbing against the back of my neck. It bothers me to no end.

And yet... I just have such a hard time resisting a deal, and I've really been wanting to try something from Yuin...

OK, I feel like I spent enough time with the phones to get a good feel for them.

Compared to the KSC75, the PK-3s are slower (lacking PRAT only when compared to ksc75s and grados), equally detailed, has less but better more controlled bass, more balanced and has smaller soundstage. For me, the KSC75 is still the better phone, but that didnt surprise me, just because of the size difference of the drivers. The thing that did surprised me was that I never felt that the PK-3s were lacking in anything. Usually when I try cheaper phones, I can automatically tell what I was missing but with the PK-3 I didnt feel like anything was gone (except detail and slam, both of which are really easy to tell).

For me, the PK-3 is a keeper. A cheap phone that doesnt make me look like an elephant (ksc75s) and has decent SQ compared to the competition.
