The mid-level earbuds from Yuin, the PK2s are a pair of modest champions, packing superb sound into a relatively simple-looking enclosure. Mike from Headfonia says it best: "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 mid-bass, and not so much low bass." These buds operate at 16 ohm, so you'll be able to drive them comfortably with all portable devices and laptops.
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: Both male and female voices sound clear and realistic.
