Yurbuds Ironman Inspire PRO Sport Earphones

Yurbuds makes "Performance Fit Sport Earphones," with product packaging featuring sweaty triathloners. In particular, the bright red Yurbuds Ironman Inspire PRO earphones are definitely not low profile, with a rather bulky and ungainly look featuring a swoop design that twists into your ear.

While at first glance this design might make sense only to help hold the earbuds secure for active use, the Yurbuds turn out to be amazing comfortable for extended wear, and with bright and clear sound. They're made from medical grade silicon that's rugged but flexible, with an extended 4 foot Kevlar cable, and are water-resistant and sweat proof.

Plus they include an in-line microphone and three control buttons, so you can adjust the volume, start and stop music, and switch to hands-free calls.

You insert the Yurbuds with a twisting motion to fit the scoop into the ear canal. It then rests comfortably and fits securely without requiring a tight fit, and still allowing ambient noise in from your surroundings.

The scoop delivers clear sound deeper into your ears, for clearer playback and very clear phone calls, although it's a bit disconcerting to apparently hear the other party speaking so crisply from the center of your head.

The Yurbuds are also great for listening to podcasts, although the clear sound does mean you hear more of the background sounds during less well-produced recordings.

The bottom line is that the Yurbuds Ironman Inspire PRO Earphones are a great fit for sports, and beyond, combining a rugged design and secure fit with great acoustics and surprising comfort. They're available for around $49, along with other related models.
