    Yurbuds Ironman Series Cable Failed

    • Written by from Seattle

    After the warranty was up 1.2 years the cable for my yurbuds failed and only one of the speakers still worked. At first it was intermittent and then the other ear pod speaker stopped working completely.

    These earphones are not as robust as advertised and i would not recommend them for serious runners.

    Overrated.

    • Written by from Morris

    Have gone through three pairs of these. Every one has malfunctioned. Yurbuds used to send you a new pair, now you have to send in headphones and wait for the replacement. A company that has a motto of 'by athletes for athletes.' Contradicts having to workout with no headphones for a week. Most recent pair would cut in and out on the first use. Button control failed to work in less than a month. The malfunctions are just as distracting as headphones falling out, which they do. When cycling, the wind is substantially louder in the ear with the headphone, they are not wind friendly.

    OK sound. Stay in ear. BUT....

    • Written by from Elizabethtown

    I've had these for about a year. They do sound OK (about the same as the Apple earbuds). And they do stay in your ear very securely (unlike the Apple ones).
    Unfortunately, the red rubber attachments that secure the earbuds in your ear will work their way loose and fall off easily after some use.
    Finally gave up on them after the 3th round of replacement red rubber earpiece attachments got lost. After a while, if you work out, the aforementioned rubber pieces become slick with sweat, slip off and and eventually disappear. The first time it happened, the company sent me another pair gratis. The next time, I had to pay $14 for a new pair. After the next time, I gave up. Would not recommend.

    Not for Serious Athletes...

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    These earphones take a minute to figure out, but once you get them in they feel great- until you start working out. I was sold by the tagline "designed for athletes by athletes" and disappointed by their performance. If you're into light jogging or something with minimal exertion they are decent. They won't fall out. But once you start sweating, forget it. They come out just like earbuds.

    Well they stay in place...

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    but that is about the best thing I can say about them. Yes, the ear buds do stay in place the way that they advertise, but here is what you are trading off:
    1. poor sound quality - the sound makes the standard Apple earbuds sound like a live concert in your head
    2. the phone mic is horrible - not usable horrible
    3. the buds themselves seem cheaply made - the rest seems nice, but I kinda wonder why it seems like they just skipped any type of spending on buds
    would I buy them again, no
