    I just checked out Yurbuds' website, and they look legit! Maybe when I get my next paycheck . . . Smile

    I'll second the Yurbuds endorsement.  The only drawback I've found is, sound quality isn't great.  BUT...when I'm out running, I specifically don't want my ears filled with rich, full sound.

      cannot recommend enough. both my dad and i own a pair for running. the additional piece that fits under your outer ear is brilliant.

       

      Those look legit too! I didn't think I was in the market for new earbuds, but after reading this thread, I'm really rethinking that initial thought . . .

        I have a pair of the behind the ear Yurbuds, AMAZING! I have ran through so many pairs of shorted out headphones, and I was using a pair of Skullcandy Titans but they really hurt my ears after a while (2 hours) and I ran 3+ with the Yurbuds and was still goin strong!

          I am truly amazed at the number of replies.
          Thanks to all of you.

          I think I will buy Yurbuds.
          Do you have any recommendations for the model?

           

          Are the cheap ones good, or should I spend some extra money for the higher cost models?

           

          Thanks again,

            Picked up a pair of Yurbuds a few weeks ago, love them.


            an amazing likeness

              To my opinion, Sennheiser are the way to go.

                  I went with the ones with a cloth-covered cord.  Never used the other models, but I know in general, the regular rubber-coated kind tend to tangle more easily, and are more difficult to manage in general.

                    I received a pair of Yur Buds for Christmas, I agree, they are fantastic.

                      I've used quite a few different types over the years. I do quite a bit of treadmill running and I'm a heavy sweater. My two issues are the buds staying firmly put and lasting more than a few months. I've been using the below pair (same as Nakedbabytoes i think) for several months and have been delighted with them. A bit on the pricy side, but they don't move at all once I pop them in and have  held up well. Plus the sound is sweet!

                        I got the rubber corded ones and they get really messy really fast! I also got the behind the ear, I like it and I don't. They don't fall out anyway, but I like em cause I can clip it on to my shirt at the gym if I need to hear something other than my music

                          Yurbuds with IPhone capability are great.  Good sound from an Earbud and water/sweat proof as well.  Love mine.

                            I always use my iPhone to listen to my music. Are there some models that aren't compatible with iPhones?

                              The Inspire Pro Yurbuds allow you to control music, Siri etc from a button on the earbuds.  Most other headphones will not have this.

                                Does anyone have the Yurbuds with mic?  I dont talk on the phone much when running but need to be able to answer calls occasionally.  I'm trying to decide between them and the Sennhauser PMX 680i

                                I can and I will!
