I have some serious bias when it comes to my workout gear. Once I find something I like I just want to keep buying them for fear they will change something and I’ll have to start the hunt all over again. Reads = You’re a hoarder 😉
I have tiny ears..seriously. It’s sometimes an odd problem that always leaves me struggling with ear buds. I will run naked once in a while but most of the time I enjoy rocking out to some great tunes that keep me motivated.
I have gone through what I would consider wayyy to many different options for ear buds. I have tried super expensive, cheap and everything in between, but the problem for me is usually the same. Not only is my ear itself tiny, my ear canal is also extremely small which makes it uncomfortable and difficult to keep a bud in my ear.
You would think if you were given small ears they would stay close to your head but NO mine also like to stick out….
So last summer YES LAST SUMMER that’s 2012 when my klutchclub included a pair of Yurbuds I was crazy skeptical about how they would work. After all they do look a little odd when you aren’t familiar with them.
Oh and I should mention this isn’t a sponsored post this is a fully all me OMG these are the best things EVER post!!
They are amazing! The music quality is high and they do a great job drowning out the background noise as well. Since I’m not a graceful treadmill runner my favorite part of these ear buds is how securely they stay in your ear! I once almost feel off my treadmill. The best part? My YURBUDS stayed in place! Even in my panic flail of arms they stayed in! My ipod took a tumble as did my pride but we all survived.
Is there anything worse than having to mess with your music while out on a run. I want to put mine in, rock out to the music and get in a run zone. YURBUDS have been the easiest ear buds I’ve EVER used and seriously might be the only ones I will use again. I think the trick (and the reason they work well in my little ears) are the design and the way you put them in your ear. The longer part you place in the ear canal and then you turn the bud & cord until it’s in place. GENIUS!
About the company: Yurbuds was founded in 2008 by Seth Burgett, President and CEO, an active triathlete and Richard Daniels, COO, a 24-time marathoner. And I’m VERY happy they did. My struggles for ear buds ended the day I found them!
I’m currently rocking the Inspired Women’s Style in Pink! They are $29.99 which at first glance I understand can be a budget buster BUT I’ve had these now for over a year and a half and they are still going strong! Making them for me a high quality product well worth the money. I tried to remember how many pairs I had purchased to “try” over the year before I got my YurBuds and I think I spent more on ALL those other pairs. And had more problems.
YurBuds has also expanded into other over the ear styles and phone accessories as well.
While shopping last week I was also really excited to see that TARGET is now carrying YurBuds in their women’s active wear area! So now you can touch them before you purchase.
I can’t say enough great things about my yurbuds. I once thought I lost one of the rubber ends and the thought of loosing them brought me to tears! Luckily I found it squished down in my pocket but for a split second I thought about how terrible it would be having to use other ear buds until my new YURBUDS could arrive.
Yurbuds are on my must have for running list. Even my husband tired to steal them from me after he tried them once. No way… I now keep them in their very own secret pocket of my workout bag…for safe keeping of course!
