Gear Review and Giveaway: Yurbuds

I have always had an issue with the earphones of my iPod falling of whenever I run. It has thrown me off countless times and it was really A-NNO-YIIING!  I know I am not the only who's had this problem.  I think every runner who listens to music while running knows what I am talking about.

I am so relieved that this is no longer a problem for me.  Ever since Yurbuds sent me these babies...



Yurbuds are custom fit earphones that won't fall off...Guaranteed!

These Yurbuds stuck to my ear like glue through my long runs and speedwork.  To test it, I even tried doing a cartwheel and some pirouettes to see if it stays in place.  And it did!!! Amazing!  Would've been awesome if I had a video to prove it.  So instead, you can check out this lady...









Now do you believe me?

You can check out their other videos online and you'll be surprised at all the other things people did to prove that they don't come off.  They tumbled, twirled around like a dervish and one girl even did the Irish dance.

Other things I love about Yurbuds:

- It enhances sound quality.  They are much better than the apple earphones. Totally pimpin' my beats!
- Soft and comfortable.  It is made out of medical grade silicone.
- Sweat-proof.  Don't have to worry about sweat dousing my earphones.
- Water-resistant.  I used them while it was raining and no damage whatsoever.
- Personally sized.  Because every ear is different.  Just submit a photo and they will determine your size.  Easy peasy.
- Not an iPhone or iPod user?  Yurbuds have earphones that are compatible to your mp3.

The Yurbuds is an insanely good product.  I learned that it was developed by a marathoner and a triathlete.  You cannot go wrong with that!

I've never used my original Apple earphones since I started using Yurbuds.  I've been switching it back and forth from my iPod and iPhone.  I am hooked.

I've got my iPod and tunes ready for my first full marathon in 9 days.  And I'm taking these Yurbuds with me all the way to the finish line.

Earbuds falling off!One less thing to worry about on marathon day! Thank you, Yurbuds!

30 Days of Thanks (Day 24)

I am thankful for my health.  I have always taken it for granted and it has never been more appreciated 'til now.   Good health is such a blessing. I am currently involved in several physical activities, geared towards accomplishing my  goals in my chosen sport and my family relies on me to cook and care for them.  That being said,  being in poor health is really not an option.

  26. I recently won a pair of yurbuds, so I am not entering, but wanted to leave a comment. I had the same problem with all of my other ear phones that I paid 60 to 100 bucks for. To no end, they sucked. They would fall out, get sweaty, etc.. I have been using yurbuds now for 2 months and LOVE them. They do as advertised. Now I can totally rock out to audiofuel. If you like to run to the beat of music check them out. Now I have discovered how to listen to songs I already own, and going to the beat by finding out the BPM. Thanks for the giveaway. I wish someone a nice win. Take care and best wishes on your upcoming and successful Marathon.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd pick the yurbuds blue for the personalized sizing option. I spoke to their customer service about their sizing process and if they are able to do 2 different yurbud sizes (my ears are weird...) and they are totally capable.

    ReplyDelete
  37. You are on my blog roll under Rae's Reads!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think I would just run. My headphones always fall out a couple times during a run, so if yurbuds didn't fall out once, then I would believe they are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  39. And you are on my blog roll or course :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. To test out the yurbuds, this is what I'd do: fact- I grew up on a family owned carnical. fact- I *know* its impossible for earbuds to stay in when riding the Gravitron. When at full speed, the face stretches downward and causes the ear canal to stretch a little.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Interesting...I'll have to consider getting some. I can TOTALLY relate to the earbuds falling out dilemma! I found a Nike headband that covers my ears. I wear it on every run to keep my earbuds from falling out. It works pretty well. The material is perfect for any type of weather. Keeps my ears warm if it's cold out, but stays dry if it's hot.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would wear them in a mid-August half-marathon in Texas... where people sweat more than pigs on the equator...

    ReplyDelete
  43. suhweett I totally need these!
    I like the ironman series

    ReplyDelete
  44. hmm proving they don't come off...how about Miami Summer Humidity of 89% in the wind on the bridges over the water for 20 miles

  51. I'm thinking a good way to prove they won't fall out is to wear them to our local gym to one of their crazy cardio classes.
