I realize that the OP asked about Sennheiser.I guess I should have been a little clearer as that I was looking at Sennheiser as well.After checking other forums I found the PK 3's.Hope I didn't offend anyone.

 

No harm, no foul, Mark. I was just attempting to keep the thread on-topic for the OP as yelped also asked about the Yuins. He might find the links you provided in your previous post helpful. Smiley Wink

Re: Suggestion on a pair of sennheiser earphones

This forum has so much info and I have learned so much.I would not have ended up with a Fuze if it wasn't for this forum.However it is important to keep threads pertinent to what the OP has asked forSmiley Wink Or we would just have 1 never ending thread that would be hard to sort out.

Re: Suggestion on a pair of sennheiser earphones

I wonder how the Yuin compares with the Sennheiser MX560. The MX560 is quite inexpensive. Sometimes Sennheiser comes out with great stuff for cheap. The Sennheiser MX400 was an example of that.

I have the MX-760, Senn's top of the line standard earbud ($40). It doesn't even come close to the PX-100 in sound quality. I would expect the same from the Yuin. I don't think the tiny little drivers in those earbuds can produce the same quality as even a small pair of earphones.

Re: Suggestion on a pair of sennheiser earphones

So it sounds like you're looking for headphones, not earbuds, right? I've got a pair of CX300s (buds) and they sound pretty darn great. I got them for $30 before $15 MIR, so that was a plus, too. They have great response, great sound isolation . . . but they do have a poor J-cord design, and the rubber on the wires is a bit sticky, so they can pull out when you're moving around if you snag them. . . . 

 

Actually, I hate my CX300s. They sounds good, but they're more hassle than they're worth. Still, the in-ear style buds are fantastic in general, depending on your needs.

In response to bdb,

Comparing the PX-100 and the PK3? While the PX-100 sound is outstanding, I just am more of a person who finds the ear bud form factor more to my liking (just don't like headbands and cups pressing on my ears). SQ-wise, they are not too far apart, but I think the PK3s have a little more detail. If I had to choose, I'd choose the PK3s. Just my POV. But again, the Senns are a great value if you can get them deeply discounted.

I am total agreement with Marvin; I also can't stand ear-bud/ear canal type 'phones......
