Yurbuds!!!

I won a giveaway from Beth over at Shut Up and Run. I won a pair of Yurbuds!!!
Basically, I took a picture of my ear with an apple earbud in it and e-mailed it to the company. They then sent me specifically sized yurbuds to place over the earbuds.

I was VERY skeptical. I have tried various brands of earbuds and have never liked them. They never stay in and are very uncomfortable in my ear. My husband teases me that something is anatomically wrong with my ears and doesn't understand that ear buds just don't fit in my ear.

I have been using good, old-fashioned headphones and feeling a bit dorky at the gym, being the only one. Well...I am no longer the dork with the old school headphones!

The yurbuds worked!! They actually stay in my ears and are actually comfortable. I really completely doubted the yurbuds given my past fails with ear buds. I am thrilled to be able to comfortably wear them.

So...if regular ear buds don't work for you, definitely check out the site! And...this is my honest opinion. I won these, didn't pay a dime and already have them in my hot little hands...so this review is truly what I think. If they sucked, I wouldn't be afraid to tell you so. :)

Congrats! It is always fun to win and get those "surprises" in the mail. Let's face it, we are all kids.

I've had the same problem!!!! I'm glad they work!

Heather said...

Fun! I need to get some of those. I don't use my iPod very often when I run, but when I do, I want the damn ear buds to stay in!

Judi said...

Interesting - I have never heard of them before! Glad they worked for you!

Cool!!!! I just ordered a pair. My iPod buds will not stay in, and are never in the best place for good sound. Thanks for the referral. I will let you know how they do.

very cool. I cant get most earbuds to stay in. I need to use a headband type or an ear-wraparound. This might be the answer :)

Congrats on the win! Glad they worked! My favorites are the ones that come with the ipod shuffle - others haven't worked for me.

Very cool. I need to look into something like that. I rarely use an ipod when I run, but if I am stuck on the treadmill, well, they're essential! Congrats on snagging them!

Thank you for the info! I usually only have a problem with my Apple earbuds when I get sweat in my ears...then the buds start slipping out.

So please tell me what you eat before your run to prevent the trots. Maybe it will work for me!

Thanks for the tip! My ears also are not designed for earbuds.
