Yurbuds, A Runner's and Fit-Geek's Dream
While in Vegas for the CES conference this past Janurary, I was introduced to Yurbuds. I'm not a tri-athlete...yet, but I do try to exercise on a regular basis so naturally, I was very excited to test these out. Plus I'm always looking for the best and newest headphones.
What do you get when you buy Yurbuds? · Yurbuds Ironman Series Earphones - Fitted with red yurbuds – Light style · Extra red yurbuds – Intense style · Red Ironman nylon carrying case – Zippered pouch · Ironman trading cards - Inspirational stories of personal triumph · Quick-Start guide – Installation and care instructions
When I first opened them up, I immediately noticed the soft plastic that they're made of. It's for extra soft comfort! :D I used the Quick-Start guide to see how to use them, its a small card that shows a pictorial view of how to angel the headphones into your ears. At first I thought, "man these are too big for me, I'll never like them." Half a song into my jog, I forgot they were there. I'm not even exaggerating! It was like I was in my own little music room! They didn't move, I could hardly feel them, they were plain amazing.
Since I tend to be a skeptic, I had to keep using them to see if my satisfaction wasn't a fluke. I am happy to report that as of today, I have used the Yurbuds over 20 times while running, resistance training, elliptical-ing, and for general activities (work). Only during one of my workouts did one of the ear-buds shift and I had to adjust it.
Now I can't imagine working out without these. I have always been an ear-bud kind of girl because they're the most comfortable while exercising but sometimes they tend to fall out and Yurbuds don't and that makes me very happy. (oh! and they don't hurt)
The acoustics are really good as well. They help me focus on my workout and not the person on the machine beside me. They make your music sound great and help to tune out the outside world by just the perfect amount.
Another thing to mention, I truly love the cord material. Its soft, pliable and doesn't get kinky no matter which way you roll, wrap, or tangle it. Which is more than I can say about all of my previous headphones. The little zippered pouch is convenient to throw into a bag too.
