Great sound, but bad quality control and service Jun 17, 2009
By Daniel Beaver
I am conflicted about how to go about writing this review. This is easily a 5-star product, offering the best sound I have ever heard from earbuds of this design, and comfort to boot. However, the first pair I bought were off-balance, with one side sounding much louder than the other. I tried to get them returned, but the Yuin was unresponsive to my emails. This is unacceptable service, and I'm marking them down as a result. Still, if you get a working pair you will be delighted by this product.

Good but beware Sep 16, 2009
I've owned about four or five of these PK3's over the years. The good news is that they are super comfortable and sound totally awesome which was why I kept replacing them. The bad news is that _ALL_ of them eventually exhibited the same problem after months of usage: One of the earphones would stop working while the other one continued to function.
Then if you jiggle the wire around you may or may not get the sound back. This problem occurs through normal usage, even when I was extra careful not to bend or stress the wires at the rubber sleeve connection point.

best bargain out there Aug 07, 2009
By Mitchell Fox
I am the type of person that appreciates great quality, but I like it best when quality and value merge. That is what you get with these headphones. The first thing I noticed about these was the mass, they are easily three times the weight of OEM (not heavy, they are ear-buds) these actually have magnets in em!
I looked all over for a good bud at a good price and didn't want to go the IEM route, entry fee is way too steep to get into quality and I like to be able to be aware of my surroundings (I wear them at work occasionally).
I was a little scared at first they didn't sound $50 better than my aftermarket sonys but after a solid 24 hour burn-in they were fantastic. I have had these for about 8 months and have not been careful with them (carry them unprotected in my pockets all the time with my sansa clip, keys, whatever) and they are still going strong.
These are a no-brainer unless you have unlimited resources.

great earbud for the money Dec 09, 2008
By 2 bag guy
these are a no-brainer step up from std issue ipod earbuds. Try these, then try your stock Apple phones. No comparison. Even my kid can tell the difference and wants to use mine. I also have the OK3. That model has a sturdier cable and probably better overall sound, but the PK3 fit my ears better. They occasionally go on sale, for even a better bargain. The company has been a good one to buy from, both times. Very fast shipping, nice box for the PK3.

I should have heeded the reviews... Oct 21, 2012
By M. Cross
These do sound great (for non-IEM earphones). But, as echoed by many reviews, quality is suspect. These made it about 10 weeks before the left earphone stopped producing sound. Cheap enough not to sting too much when they die, but too expensive to buy a new pair quarterly.
