Last weekend, Yurbuds sent a lively representative to our sports store. He passed out free pairs of their Ironman sport earbuds, which he proclaimed would fit our ears perfectly, even in motion.
I have problematic ears. Keeping buds in them requires the very stillness of death, which is not a usual part of my workout.
I was dubious.
My suspicions grew when I saw the devices. They resemble livers, or perhaps alien spacecraft. And they’re BIG. No way they were going in my ears.
Yet somehow, amazingly, they fit. And not only do they fit, but they fit well. I can tug on the cord and even whip my face back and forth without them coming out. I’ve finally discovered earbuds that can stay in my ears during a workout.
Before I gush too much, though, I should mention that their fit comes at a price. The phones I recieved cost $49.99. That’s expensive (I mean, they’re not even endorsed by Dr. Dre!).
For this reason, I recommend them for runners who can’t wear anything else. If you’re blessed with ears that will hold cheaper buds, fine. For the rest of us, these are worth a few extra dollars.Share on Facebook
