UKT 130425, 151017:

Just listen and concentrate on the pronunciations of the Mon-Myan syllables
and let your ear be your guide: - les52-61<))

{k} -->
{kaa} -->
{ku} -->
{k} -->
{kau} -->
{ko} --> 

Remember the Bur-Myan pitch-registers:

{k.} (1 blk), {k} (2 blk)
- Mon-Bur has no emphatic and Bur-Myan {k:} when used in Mon becomes confusing.

Compare them with the orthographically related English word <key> /kiː/ . Make a note that the IPA symbol /iː/ is the most front-open long vowel: do not confuse it with its counterpart short vowel /ɪ/.

I sympathise with the Western philologists trying to make sense of such "allophones" when they are equipped with just one English sound of <key> /kiː/. No wonder they make such a pretty confusion of transcription of Burmese into English!
