    Second pair failure

    • Written by from Warrenton

    I have purchased two pairs of these and in both pairs the right ear has failed. They are great for the 6 months that work but I will never buy another pair.

    Returning these

    • Written by from Huntingdon Valley

    I just bought these at the Apple store and tried them. First, the sound quality is really poor for the price. It's just a very flat, almost grainy sound. Second, the buds actually irritate my ear canal. I am using the smallest provided and it feels really uncomfortable. For the price, these should sound and feel better.

    Yur Buds

    • Written by from Seattle

    Worked great for six months, then the right ear bud gave out. Having to jump through hoops for help from Yur Buds. I recommend not purchasing this product. $60.00 worth of a useless product. There is enough competition to find a like product that will outlast these ear buds.

    not comfy

    • Written by from Orlando

    I rarely put up reviews but unfortunately I am compelled to do so in this case. I did my research on these earbuds before buying but I am disappointed. I wish I could have opened the box because I would have seen right away that the buds are too big for my ear. I will send away for a smaller covering to see if that helps but with the earbud being uncomfortable I doubt a new covering will work. Hope others have better luck with this product.

    YurBuds-Yur Not Worth It

    • Written by from Nashville

    I have now been through three pairs of these in less than four months. I have used each pair on a different devise and it is the same, the volume and song control device goes out after less than 30 days. Either the volume sticks and cant be changed or the song will randomly stop and start again. I dont workout outside, have never got them wet and have even tried to wipe the sweat off during the workout, the result is the same. They are good for about three weeks then its the same tune. I wont bother with this brand again.

    Durability Problems - last 3 months tops.

    • Written by from Bristol

    These do stay in your ear well (even when jumping rope), so I stuck with them, but I went thru 3 sets, as they all develop a "short" in the cable where the cable connects to the ipod plug. Very frustrating as they sound better than the standard ear buds but just are not durable enough under normal conditions.

    I purchased these to add to my collection of different headphones. The concept is great, however for my ears the fit was completely uncomfortable. I tried both the small and large size. After about 4 minutes, I could feel the stingy pain of the uncomfortable fit in my ear. Plus, i like my cord to go behind head and with the Y control piece, doesn't work well for my preferences.

    My Experience!!

    • Written by from Nepean

    I bought these sport earbuds and tried the smaller set out of the two which were still too big for my ears. I could still hear people and other background noise while playing the music. The rubber bud would would detach easily from the actual ear peice themselves upon removal of the ears, so I found myself cautious of taking them out to avoid loosing them. Well one of my rubber pieces fell off while taking it out of my coat and lost it on the tube(the subway). I have resorted to the biggest of the two sizes now that I have only 3 buds. They are now way to big for my ears and so the buds fall off a lot more now so having to to do the swap. The mic is way to low for anyone to hold a conversation so I have to hold it which defeats the purpose of hands free head set. Even with the clip, it was becoming a nuisance when the cord was caught on things which resorted to the cord being tugged and detach from my shirt. Using the clip to hoist the mic had the two cords that go from ear to ear very unstylish with the look of extra cord coming out the top of your shirt. In my overall experience the price point for these is way to high for the quality provided. How do we resolve these issues?

    Bad Mic, Worst Sound

    • Written by from Glen Morris

    I bought these based on several reviews and the recommendation of the guy at Apple. I found however, that I couldn't talk to anyone through them as they claimed to hear every background noise out there. Add to it that the sound quality of the phones was like listening through a tin can. After just a short hr stent with them, my ears got sore as well. I wouldn't recommend them at all.

    Broke on first run

    • Written by from Houston

    I bought these looking for earbuds that would stay in place and would also give me control over my playlists etc. The volume and start/stop controls failed on my very first run. They simply quit working. I plan on immediately returning these and would not recommend.

    Volume Controls Fail

    • Written by from Dix Hills

    I purchased these at an expo before a half-marathon. They stayed in place the entire race, but as another reviewer pointed out, the volume rose to ear-splitting level and could not be controlled. This happened an hour into the race and I had to manually adjust the volume on my iPhone while running. The volume control failed to work for hours after the race, and did not return to functionality until the next day. Very poor performance for a "athletic" rear bud.

    Cheap Phones with Special Rubber

    • Written by from Atlanta

    You're paying $60 for the rubber because the headphones are truly garbage. Awful sound. Sure they'll stay in, but you want the sound to be at least decent, and it isn't. After hearing them, I immediately exchanged them for the Sennheiser CX 680i's. NO comparison on sound (the Sennheisers are terrific), they are light, they are comfortable and they stay in. My first pair of Sennheisers broke after many years of good use. These are a terrific improvement.

    The mic picks up every bit of background noise, such as wind and worst of all, the irritating scraping sound of the mic body rubbing against my shirt! The worst mic on any device. Kept them 5 min. before returning for refund. If you need an earbud/mic combo, choose ANY other but this one.

    Total Waste of $60

    • Written by from Calgary

    The Apple "Genius" told me these sounded "amazing, way better than the Si4s" so I tried them. I want my money back. They are almost as bad as the old iPod headphones but they are $60. There is very little sound isolation with these and I don't find the fit terribly comfortable either. The sound...blows. All muddled and very poor base response. Every song I tried them with sounds like I recorded them off the radio on a cassette like back when I was a kid.

    Too big

    • Written by from Vestavia

    These are too big for my smallish ear, apparently. The packaging claims that if they don't fit you can email them a picture of your ear and they'll make you a custom-fit pair, which I did, but never heard back from the company. Bummer.

    Poor performance and only fair sound quality

    • Written by from San Jose

    Searching for a good headphone for workouts having gone through SennheiserAdidas 680i (rubber parts fall off and controls unreliable) and the last gen Bose (uncomfortable (didn't stay in the ear) and not designed to resist moisture), so bought Yurbuds. Price certainly was reasonable, but after about two weeks, controls stopped working reliably and then, about a week later, after the headphones became wet during workouts (about 30 minutes in), music from my iPhone would begin to increase in volume to the maximum, ear-splitting level. Nothing could be done to get the headphones to stop this and play at a lesser volume, so they became useless at this point. Very frustrating. Rubber volume control (on 3-Button control) also fell off. Sound quality was only so-so, nothing great. Wouldn't recommend, unfortuantely.

    Not for any sport

    • Written by from New York

    Don't get me wrong - the sound is good and it's correct that the buds do stay in your ear. However, the problem is the ridiculously huge mic/button plastic Y frame that hands mid-wire. It is so bulky and heavy that it yanks and hits your chest during even the most modest exercise. Very annoying and distorts the sound - even yanking on and pulling out the ear buds when running. Very bad design flaw as it lets everything down. Disappointing.

    If actual earbud gets damp plastic part that goes in ear comes off. So disappointed and is very annoying. Sorry this item does not work as stated.
