The folks at Yurbuds recently offered me an opportunity to try out a pair of their earbuds as part of a Yurbuds review. I selected a pair of pink Yurbuds, with some of the proceeds going toward breast cancer research.
From the Yurbuds website

I have purchased/tried no less than six types of earbuds in the last four years. Yurbuds is the first set that has not fallen out! For the most part I’ve truly been impressed during my Yurbuds review.
As soon as I opened the package up and felt the rubbery exterior I knew they would have some grip. And the shape of the actual earbuds is interesting, a little intimidating maybe at first, but within a few tries I figured out to put them in my ears with ease.
I have worn the earbuds at least half a dozen times now. They have withstood sweat and wind. If anything, when I’ve worn them I’ve been a little paranoid thinking they are going to fall out or find myself trying to readjust them – when there is nothing to adjust!
I guess that’s just become habit with all the crummy earbuds I’ve tried over the years. Yurbuds fit a little differently in that they take up the whole inside part of your ear. It’s a snug fit too.
They come with what appears to be the typical iPhone earbud set. I’ve had other issues with my past iPhone earbud sets with the cord – ie. shredding. This cord appears the same so I’m more worried the earbuds are going to wear out before the Yurbuds.
As it says on the Yurbuds website, their product is not noise canceling or sound isolating. I noticed running in the wind that, like most earbuds, you have some wind noise going through your ears during my Yurbuds review.
Also the way the product fits on the earbuds — I found I needed to turn my iPhone volume up a bit, it seemed to muffle the music just a tad. Yurbuds have only a 90-day warranty. Most products have at least a 1-year warranty.
If you are looking for earbuds that don’t fall out, try Yurbuds.
