>1/4/13: Yurbuds Bluetooth Review

YurBuds has only been on the market for a couple years, but they have made a splash in the Sport category because of their unique design.  Yurbuds are designed with soft silicone ear buds that are actually shaped and engineered to deliver sound into the ear canal.  The design of the buds helps to limit the amount of sweat and water that get into the speaker, making them highly water and sweat resistant.  The unique design also provides a secure fit that stays in comfortably when running.


Marathon Sports brought in YurBuds 2 years ago and they have quickly become one of our best selling accessories.


YurBuds newest product is a wireless Bluetooth headphone set that continues to build on their foundation of smart design and functionality.


The Inspire – Limited Edition – Wireless Bluetooth is innovative and a welcome addition to the wireless headphone market.  Many of us are familiar with Bluetooth headphones – they’re typically made of rigid plastic and wrap around the back of the head, with a casing in the back for the battery and Bluetooth technology.  The Inspire LE has managed to bypass the typical design we’re accustomed to by encasing both the battery and Bluetooth technology in the earpieces.  Though the casings look a bit unwieldy, they are surprisingly lightweight.  The buds are the classic YurBuds design and fit comfortably in the ear.  Even with the casings holding the battery and Bluetooth transmitter, there is no bounce while running and the fit is secure.


Here are the details:

-       Big sound (15mm Driver)

-       Up to 6 hour of battery life during active use

-       Audible and visual battery indicators

-       Dedicated pairing button

-       Wind resistant microphone

-       Call, Track, Volume, Power buttons all on the right ear casing

-       Lifetime warranty


The YurBuds Inspire – Limited Edition Wireless Bluetooth headphones retail for $169.99 (Lifetime Warranty) and are available at all Marathon Sports locations.
