I am an on and off music listener while running, some days I like it, some days I don't. Good earphones plays a vital part in my decision of running with music or not, although I only had one pair that I purchased from walmart. Some days they seem to fit better than others but I have to say I really wasn't the happiest with them. (At this moment I can't remember what brand/style they are) Then I started seeing all the talk on the blog world about Yurbuds. I went to there site and checked them out. Then out of the blue a couple of days later the marvelous Adam from Yurbuds contacted me about doing a review ~ how ironic is he reading my mind? So of course I agreed.
If you haven't been to theirsite then you really should check it out. The first step in ordering Yurbuds is to get fitted, click HERE to see how, you basically hold a quarter up next to your ear and send them a photo of it ~or~ you can send a photo of your current earphones in your ear. They will tell you what size you are and then place your order! I anxiously waited for mine, I usually only listen to music on long runs. I received my just in time for my first 15k. I was ever so thankful to have them that day as I didn't feel good and was without my buddy cause she was lots better than me that day. Another thing I only do is run with one earphone in mostly just for safety. The first few times I wore the earphones I wasn't so sure I liked them, however I think it was my fault and probably didn't have them in correctly. The other night I ran on the dreadmill and used both Yurbuds and I probably took more time making sure they were in right and LOVED them! They had somewhat of an echo sound that allowed me to hear other things going on as well, which I liked. I used one today on the last long run before our half and once again I LOVED IT! My Yurbud stayed perfectly in my ear the entire run and I never had to adjust it, even when I really started sweating no movement!
So of course I had to ask the marvelous Adam if he would offer a pair to giveaway, and yep he agreed! Want some Yurbuds?
