Regardless of the miles I always find plugging into my iPod always helps the miles slip away. The only problem I have with this is two things: one being that I have a really small ear canal and second a lot of times the earphones that I use cancel out almost all of my surrounding noises, which is not too safe. Needless to say I was beyond excited when the amazing people at Yurbuds were very generous in wanting to support me in my running endeavors. They sent me two pairs of Yurbuds Duro, one for me to review and keep, and the other you can win as a shopportunity giveaway!

I first saw Yurbuds at one of the many expos that I have had the pleasure of visiting along my journey as a runner. My awareness was further heightened when numerous people on the facebook running group Disney Pacebook Running Club where chatting about how these were simply the best earphones. It definitely peeked enough interest that I looked into the company website to see what the hype was about. Needles to say, I was intrigued.
As soon as FedEx dropped off my package I was anxious to rip open the box. Inside was the earphones, which are shaped like a normal set of iPod earbuds, but with a much longer cord and funnel shaped rubber around each earbud. All of this combined makes Yurbuds what they are. The longer cord is nice especially when you wrap it through clothes or have a tendency to accidentally pull on the string when you run.
The rubber coverings are super soft and they fit very well in my ears. These are so much more comfortable since these sit in your ears verses being pushed in like my old iPod earphones. The rubber ear covering has a funnel shape which goes directly into the ear canal. I think that this is what provides a superior sound quality. Regardless of the amazing sound quality it still allows you to hear your surroundings.
Not only am I in love with these earphones, but they package also included another set of rubber coverings, a cute little carrying case, and my favorite two cards with motivating, inspiring, encouraging, and empowering statements. Having a background in design and marketing I am very aware of the power of packaging and I think that Yurbuds hit it out of the park with this one. What a cool touch! Take a look!
When I’m on a run there are certain songs help me lift my feet off the ground. The quality of music that you hear when you are wearing Yurbuds helps transport you to a different time and place. Simply put they are AMAZING! Be sure to enter for your chance to win! Best of luck!
