The Yuin Pk1 is a modest champion. Designed with sound as the first priority, these earbuds come with superb audio and limited looks. Yuin builds their products on the idea that great function makes a great product. The PK1, their flagship earbud, is the epitome of this philosophy by delivering smooth articulate sound with little regard for external appearance.
Mike from Headfonia encapsulates the PK1 sound perfectly - "The Yuin takes the tonality of an analog, vacuum tube system. It's treble relaxed and soft, the mids sweet and lush, good punch on the midbass, and not so much low bass." Standing basses are exceptional and acoustic guitars resonate properly. The highs fall off toward the extreme end but pianos are well articulated and face melting guitar solos are still face melting. Vocals are the strong suit for these headphones. Male and female vocals sound clear and realistic.
Overall, these are among the best earbuds available, now available at the best possible price. Stellar sound, subtle looks, simple design; what more could you want in a set of earbuds? One piece of advice, these earbuds have an impressive 150Ohm resistance so they'll sound even better when powered with a portable amp or Audiophile player (like the FiiO X3).
