    Solid But Noisy

    • Written by from Mclean

    I purchased a set of Yurbuds Inspire and find them sitting in my electronics basket where extra power cords and USB cables collect. First the positives - the Inspires generally do stay in your ear, once you've got the right tip on and figure out how to twist them in. Both are pretty simple to get right. And they sound pretty good, but... Now the negatives - the cords on the Inspires are glaringly noisy, in my opinion. Once you start moving - running, walking, etc - every time the cord makes contact with your body, you hear the sound transmitted in the earpieces. Yurbuds provides you with a clip to try and reduce cable slap, but there is still too much cable noise to enjoy the music in the earphones. Secondly, the controls for volume, pause, skip, etc., are way too low on the cable if you are trying to run with the cords tucked inside a jacket or shirt. They are difficult to access. Apple does a far better job putting them near the right earpiece. I've tried reselling my Inspires on eBay for $15, no one bit. So they sit in my basket. Save your money.

    Great Product, but didn't fit my ears

    • Written by from Ventura

    I bought these buds at an apple store, gave them a try and apparently I have smaller than average ears. The buds would not go in my ear all the way, therefore wouldn't stay in during a workout, which became pretty frustrating. Event he smallest size option didn't fit, so I contacted Yurbuds.com and their customer service was very helpful and suggested an alternate style to try and fit my needs. Unfortunately those didn't work either, but Yurbuds Customer Service was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to try to make sure I was satisfied. They gave me a full refund. The product didn't work for my ears, but that doesn't mean it is a bad product. I would definitely buy these if Yurbuds ever offers a smaller size than what comes with the product.
