I’m no extreme athlete. I am a typical working wife and mother of two trying to workout and stay healthy. And gtting fine in the process is alright with me. I enjoy listening to music to get my amped and pumped while I run or lift weights. The more bump and bass the better. My only pet peeve with earphones is the fact many are too big for my ear opening and they fall out immediately once I start sweating or moving around too much from cardio (i.e. running, jumping, skipping, etc.). It is the most frustrating part of working out for me because I tend to adjust and readjust frequently during my workout which can not only be dangerous, distracts me from what I need to be focused on.
I heard about Yurbuds and saw them at Best Buy. There were several styles of them ranging in price from $24.99 up to approximately $60.00. It claims to not fall out during workouts and stay in place even when you begin to sweat. My current earphones don’t stand a CHANCE when I start sweating. It has some sort of twist and lock technology – sounds interesting. After looking at the design – I am intrigued at how this technology works. With the price differentials, I wanted to know the difference between them besides one box being thinner than the other.
Check out some of the features it touts:
ULTRA SOFT SILICONE – Ergonomically designed to avoid nerve rich areas of the ear. Made with flexible silicone, yurbuds are ultra soft and comfortable for hours on end.
Exceptional Sound Quality – Clinically proven acoustics for deeper, richer sound.
Performance Enhancing – Deliver consistent music, which is clinically proven to inspire longer, harder workouts.
Sweat & Water Resistance – Developed for training in any conditions. (Big plus to me!)
Ambient Noise Awareness – Designed to allow more ambient noise than most other earphones at the same volume levels.
Dry Mic -Water resistant 3 button control & microphone for controlling music and calls on the iPhone®, iPod®, and iPad®”. Only available on Inspire Pro and Focus Pro.
Woven Cloth Cord – Tangled & torn cords are a thing of the past with our cloth coated wires.
After reading and rereading the box all I could see is some of the boxes clearly stated they were made to work with iPad, iPod and iPhone. Now if I go with the $24.99 earbuds does that mean it would not work with my iPhone? There is so much new technology out there it can be overwhelming to a fitness enthusiast like me.
So who has used these Yurbuds? It says they were designed by athletes – do they really work? What is the difference between Inspire Pro and Focus Pro? Inquiring minds want to know. Leave a comment and share your insight!
