These are great for running. I've tried many different earphones and nothing stayed in my ear that long for cardio workouts. I don't usually listen to music while running, but I was running half marathons and full marathons, so I wanted to have a pair of reliable earphones just in case. These are affordable, cost much less than many other earphones, and they stay in my ear. I've been using them for about 6 months now and love them. I can use them at the gym on the stairmaster, elliptical, and for running outdoors.

Pros:
Lightweight
Perfect fit for small ears
Once they're in your ears, they aren't coming out.
They come in fun colors.

Cons:
You can hear EVERYTHING; I'm talking the couple whispering behind you, everything.
If you want to hear music over the wind, forget it. I live in Chicago and walking downtown with these things in is like walking through a wind tunnel.
The sound is okay, but as other reviews have mentioned, there is a lack of real bass or volume.
Lastly, if you want to hear the music well, you need to turn up the volume, but before doing so, make sure the person next to you likes the song, too.

Overall, I use them while running on the treadmill because there's no wind and they definitely won't fall out of my ears. So, these are okay for the gym but just okay. The best and really the only reason to buy these is because they won't fall out of your ears, which is pretty great.

I loved these headphones for about 2 weeks and now I am so mad at them I want to grind them up in my blender. At first, they actually stayed in my ears while I ran. However, after a couple of weeks the silicone/rubbery coverings started to stretch and became loose around the earbud part, so they no longer 'lock' into place and fall out while running. I have now lost two of the four coverings, which fell off mid-run while I was trying to twist them into my ear to lock them into place...this of course then meant I had to carry useless headphones with me for 8 miles. I think they would definitely be sweatproof if the coverings didn't fall off and you could get them to stay in your ears. I did not find them particularly comfortable once they were locked in...I could feel pressure from where they 'locked' into my ear. The sound quality was so-so, but I would sacrifice sound quality if they actually stayed in my ears for more than 2 or 3 steps. There is no way these are worth $30, especially since my $10 JVC earbuds (not designed for sports) lasted 1.5 years of long runs and everyday use.

The sound quality is very bad. As the sound does not reach your ears directly but it gets channeled from the speaker. The thing I don't like is that they are women's ear phones, which normally means they are smaller. The come with extra earpieces, but those are the same size. To get the smaller size once you have to call them to order those. I do not live in the states and I expect that when you buy earphones they come as a complete set for you to use. Now I can't use them as they are way too big for my ears. My ears are small, but not tiny. Would not recommend them to anyone else.

THese are AMAZING!! i have a hard time with earbuds fitting in my ears--they never fit in or stay in and for whatever reason they don't last more than a few months. These are so comfortable I don't even feel them, they have great sound and they have a guarantee!! :)

I am a fan of iphone 5 earbuds and was hoping these would be as comfortable. I have a hard time getting them in my ear. I am also one that doesn't like to drown out too much of the outside world as I'm road running and these make it more difficult to hear traffic... which if that's what you are looking for you may enjoy these. But mostly just uncomfortable and are basically just a special shaped cover over regular earbuds so rather expensive for that. Would rather run with no music when I forgot earbuds than wear these.

She's a gymnast and wears them during running and conditioning. She says they never fall out. Her teammates all want some now!

I abuse my headphones, it is something I have come to terms with. These are really great but the plastic covers come off easily when they are in my bag and I pull them out.

I was looking through all of the items I had bought that I hadn't reviewed and stumbled upon these Yurbuds. According to Amazon, I bought them in November of 2013, which is nearly a year and a half ago. This is important because I actually still use these very same Yurbuds and I was pretty shocked to be reminded of how old they are.

Since I first purchased these earphones, the sound quality has not changed a bit. Additionally, the product itself still looks and feels brand new. I'm pretty impressed! I definitely use these a lot -- probably daily. To give you an idea of what they go through, I use them 3-4 times a week for working out, and then probably 1-2 times a week when I'm on my laptop and trying to keep it quiet. I've used these for two different laptops, an ipod shuffle, and my Samsung Galaxy S3, with no difference in sound quality.

I think a lot of people are curious as to whether they really stay put. In the past, I have not really had problems with earphones staying in my ear, but I usually do develop some pain when I keep earphones in for too long. With these, I don't really have either problem. I regularly run with these in, and I have even gone on 20+ mile hikes with absolutely no issues.

Now, the one issue I do have is that the little earphone covers fall off very easily. I don't know how I managed to hold on to both of them after so long. There have been many times where I find them missing after taking them out of my purse or gym bag, but I've always been able to find them. There is probably a way to order just the covers, but that seems like a total pain. They've worked really well for me so far, and for under $30, I really can't complain!

I bought these for running only one month ago. I do not know about you, but I run in all sorts of weather. These do well enough in the 55-65F range and under the 5 mile mark worth of sweat. On my long runs, or if it is remotely humid or rainy, forget it.
There was one day at 70F with humidity that was also my long run - I was constantly readjusting them as they slid out of my ears. The left gel cap now constantly comes off the headphone piece, in use or even when not in use. I've also noted that if there's a light breeze the wind tunnel it creates against your ears makes the sound almost impossible to hear.

The kicker was when I ran last Sunday in the rain and the left headphone came out of my ear - with the gel cap still in my ear. I tucked that one headphone into my shirt to see if I could run a bit with one headphone, but then the right headphone slid out in the rain. I ended up giving up and running the rest of it without music. Totally not worth even the $30. Any of the professional sites that did reviews on these must have done them in Perfect Weather.

Update: I hadn't gotten a chance to get different headphones before my 10K race this weekend. I ran a 10K this weekend, only two months after getting these headphones. I spent entirely too much time (even within the first mile) putting the gel cap back on. To be clear: these fit in my ear. The gel cap stays in my ear while the headphone pops out of the gel cap. Definitely done with these.
