Yurbuds - Bringing New Inspiration To Your Training

By Miami Beach Chiropractor | Chiropractic Sports Medicine Specialist: Dr. Todd Narson

Although this blog post today isn't about a particular sports injury, rehab exercise, stretch or related is about something that helps my training-and I suspect your training too. Before I started training for triathlon I absolutely hated running. A friend agreed and said he found that running was much more tolerable when listening to his Ipod.  I tried it and started to enjoy it just a tad more. But along with that came the annoying headphones.  None of them seem to fit right. The ones that did seem to eventually become to uncomfortable or they didn't fit well and caused a loss of the dynamic range and depth of the music.  Or, the sweat would ruin the earphone and I'd have to stop, tap it out and maybe it would work. Either way, the headphones would deliver so-so sound and would often irritate me through the remainder of my training.

Well, apparently Ironman athlete Seth Burgett had some problems with his earphones too. While training for the Ironman he would find that his ears hurt more than the rest of his body.  This inspired him and to redesign the earphone and he ended up creating a better fitting ergonomic design. Form meets function with a design that avoids the nerve rich areas of the ear, delivers great sound and doesn't fall out. With that in mind, Yurbuds were born.

Yurbuds Ironman Inspire Pro - This Is What I Have!
Last month I was taping athletes at the ING Miami Marathon & Half Marathon.  After taping about 200 athletes I took a much needed break to grab a bite to eat and walked around the expo hall.  I passed this booth with some interesting looking red headphones and stopped to inquire. After speaking to a nice young lady for a couple minutes, she sized up my ear and pulled out a set of Yurbuds, plugged it into my Iphone and cranked the tunes.  They sounded spectacular! Being a musician I really appreciate good sound, which is why I typically only listen with my Bose Quite Comforts at home; but these Yurbuds sounded amazing.  I jumped around to see if I could shake them loose and they wouldn't budge.  I whipped out my credit card and bought them on the spot.

Since then I continue to train for the Nautica South Beach Triathlon on April first.  I'm running 6+ miles, biking 90-120 minutes and through it all, the Yurbuds deliver incredible sound and don't budge throughout the entire workout-sweat and all!  And although I wear my yurbuds when riding my indoor bike trainer, I still don't wear any headphones when cycling on the road. I want to hear all cars and other road noises.

So if music drives you and inspires you when training, you've got to give these yurbuds a shot.  I've had them for a month now and am very impressed with the sound, the quality and the design. They perform as expected. Don't you wish everything you purchased did the same?

To cover all bases, for those that use a headset to talk on their cellphone there's a version with a microphone as well.

It's a great product that keeps me rockin' through my workouts!  You can check out yurbuds at  Enjoy your music & your training.

Your post convince me to buy the yurbuds (was hesitating between that and the beats by dr dre for a week) and I have to say that I'm impressed with the sound quality. Thanks for the info :)
