No matter what room of the house you are in or what time of day it is there is almost always music playing in my house. There is a docking station in several rooms and both floors of the house have a full stereo system. Needless to say, we spend a lot of money on iTunes! When we leave the house, we take our music with us on our iPad, iPod, or cell phone depending on which member of the family it is. I have gone through a lot of ear buds looking for ones that fit comfortably. There have been some hard plastic ones that I really think would fit anyone comfortably! I was recently sent Yurbuds Inspire for Women Sport Earphones to try that and was eager to see how comfortable they were. If you are not familiar with Yurbuds, here is some information about them from their website:
Our mission is to transform the Athletes’ experience through personalized service and exceptional audio products that integrate ergonomics and emotive design. We have a world-class patented design that complements the human ear while providing exceptional sound quality.
Yurbuds Inspire for Women sport earphones are ergonomically designed to avoid nerve rich areas of the ear. They are made with flexible silicone and are ultra soft and comfortable for hours on end. Their unique TwistLock function locks them into place for a secure fit that never falls out, even under the most intense workout conditions. They are also sweat and water resistant which are an absolute must for good sport earphones. They are also designed to allow more ambient noise than most other sport earphones at the same volume levels. This is important when you are on a run so you can be aware of things going on in your surroundings.
I was sent a package of Yurbuds sport earphones to try out and I have never seen a design quite like this before. It is essentially a round earbud with a unique rubberizes piece on the end with a small protrusion that fits into the ear canal. They come in a selection of bright colors ranging from sky blue to red. They come with 2 different sized inserts to attach to the ear bud to ensure a good fit.

So, my opinion? I have never used a sport earphone with a twist to lock feature and my husband had to show me the right way to get them to fit correctly. You really do have to give it a small twist to lock it into the right position. Once I figured that out, I thought they were very comfortable. The small size fit quite snuggly in my ear canal and I might like it more if they came out with an EXTRA small size! I guess I have small ear canals! I thought the sound quality of the music from my headphones was comparable to the earphones that I have right now that are not sport earphones. Of course, they are not REALLY expensive earphones so depending on what you are using, your mileage may vary. The rubberized ear bud really makes it pretty ‘non slip’ when it comes to staying in place. I am not running marathons in them but haven’t had any issues with them shifting out of place.
Overall, I think if you have a runner on your holiday gift list, they would appreciate a pair of these Yurbuds sport earphones. And I just wanted to mention that while they say the are marketed towards women specifically, my husband thought they were VERY comfortable and I think I am going to have to steal them back from him!
