CES has plenty of goodies being shown off, some big and some small and it seems that we have seen plenty in terms of fitness related tech this year. And of those items just so happens to be a set of earbuds. But not any set of earbuds, a pair that is designed for those who work out and work out hard. And nicely done, these headphones not only feel durable and comfortable, but they are loaded with cool features. That being said, the pair that we are referring to are from a company called yurbuds, the model is in their Ironman series and are called the Inspire Pro.
Some of the features include how they are both sweat and water resistant, provide “exceptional” sound quality, have an ultra soft comfort fit and “twist lock technology.” Anyway, the folks from yurbuds were kind enough to provide a set for us to review so you can expect more on just how well they perform at a future date. But before we go, lets comment on that twist lock technology, this was described to us as how the earbuds go into place – they actually go over (just outside) your ear and then twist into place. And from the brief time we have used them, that appears to actually work well. But again, a proper review will be coming at a future date.
Additionally, as you can see in the above image — these earbuds have inline controls and a microphone. The inline controls feature three buttons that can be used to control your music and any phone calls. The mic is also a dry-mic so you should not have to worry about excessive sweat and/or a little rain.
Lastly, for those curious, the Inspire Pro headphones are priced at $59.99 and are currently available for sale. Also worth noting, if the earbuds are not your style or you are looking for a similar set without the inline mic, yurbuds has some other options available.
