Yurbuds recently unveiled their new sport headphones at CES, improving upon their already popular Yurbuds Inspire Ironman Series are the Yurbuds Inspire Pro.
Water Resistant Dry Mic. The addition of in-line volume controls and a microphone, a sweat resistant one at that, takes the Yurbuds to the next level.
Patented Twist Lock Technology. Completely unique design in terms of the ear bud, which allows for a perfect fit.
Ultra Soft Earbuds. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, the high grade silicone used is super soft.
Sweat Resistant. We don’t actually have any complaints in this department, but it would be unfair not to mention that others have complained about their sweat resistance. In all honesty this is likely happening to people who aren’t inserting the earbud into their ear canal properly.
What’s odd is we haven’t heard a single complaint about the Yurbuds Inspire regarding sweat resistance.
We didn’t notice a single difference in terms of sound quality and comfort when compared to the Yurbuds Inspire Ironman Series. Check out our previous review here.
Our quick recap is that these headphones sound great once you find a good fit, and their TwistLock technology keeps them in palce pretty much no matter what.
Where we did notice a difference was the added functionality of in-line controls. We’re seeing more and more sports earphones offering this feature.
There should be no question why we’re seeing this added feature on most new workout headphones. As more and more people are using either an iPhone or iPod when they workout, more and more people are going to want in-line controls. Who wants to have to take out their iPod every few minutes just to change a song? No one.
