1.0 out of 5 stars Not very sturdy!!!, March 20, 2011
This review is from: Yurbuds Inspire Duro Red (Electronics)
Ok, I read about these in a fitness magazine and thought what the hell, lets try them. I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and the weather and climate here can be rough. I used these headphones almost everyday, they were comfortable and the sound quality wasn't bad, but I did not think they were worth $50.00, because you can buy other brands that will last longer for half the price. The red ear pieces that come in 2 sizes wear out very quickly and start to fall off while in use, and they started to fall apart altogether, which was very annoying. So do yourself a favor and go with less expensive earbuds. I may need more rugged earbuds, but hey their web site was raving about how triathletes use these things and they are great etc.... But with kettle-bell and cross-fit workouts I hardly think they should fall apart so easily. I hope this helps anyone. -Out

Contact mike.legare@yurbuds.com and I'll square you away. I work for the company and am a two time returning vet from Iraq. I'd love to help solve your problem with our headphones.

All the best and keep you head up and butt down...

Tactical Crossfitter,

Hey brother. I'm in your same boat, but I've been nothing but satisfied. I bought my pair right before returning home from southern Kandahar where makeshift crossfit gyms run the COPs. As long as I routed the cord under my shirt, I never had them fall out and I've haven't destroyed them either. I suspect the moondust does a number on the soft rubber ear piece, but I just popped them off and rinsed them off before throwing them in the red baggie they came in. Since I've been back home, I haven't need to rinse off the dust each time, but I've been really happy with the purchase. Stay safe brother.

-CPT K

I had these for over two years and put them through hell. I loved them until my dog got a hold of the plastic pieces. They are definitely worth the money and you will agree with me if you have ever gone through five different sets of headphones to find none of them would stay on during a 10 mile run.
