Rated 1 out of 5 by GRT_NYC Is not sweat resistant
I admit that I'm a heavy sweater but Yurbuds is no more sweat resistant than the typical factory default iPhone earbuds. Skip the marketing hype and don't waste your time or money with this pretender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dog8MyYurbuds Good if you don't have a Lab puppy
Quick note to the "my yurbuds shorted out" folks. Duros have a lifetime warranty. Hope you see this and save some $$.
I have only used these for a single week during a business trip. They were fantastic. Unfortunately when I got home, our 6-month old lab decided the ear gels were delicious. The headphones survived the ordeal fine, but I haven't seen the ear gels and have to assume the worst. Whether I see them again or not, they aren't going back in my ears. I just bought another pair, because nothing else I have had works as well, and the cool thing is that these duros come with two sets of ear gels, so now one of the small-eared people in my family gets a new set of Yurbuds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JTurney Great fit, great sound, best earbud for athletes
I am an endurance athlete and train almost everyday. Somedays with music others without. Yurbuds are the best product I've found on the market for earbuds that stay in my ears when im sweating like crazy. Ive tried other products, in all designs and costs, that claim to stay in and resist sweat but nothing ever worked. Maybe its because I sweat more than other people or whatever, but my Yurbuds have become an important part of my training gear because they actually do what they claim to do.
I use Yurbuds mainly when doing trail runs and cycling training because I need a little inspiration when im out there. Yurbuds are perfect for me. They keep my music in my ears and I dont have to worry about them slipping out or shorting out from my sweat. I put them in, take off, and forget about them because they never need adjusted. I recommend Yurbuds to all my running and biking friends.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mike73 Major Design Flaw
Fit is great and sound is good, but this product has a major design flaw: Cloth covered cords, meant to keep tangle free, create a loud aggravating "scratching" sound that interferes with audio when they rub against clothing, etc. - which happens anytime they're used when running or working out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JBH A runners must have.
They don't slip they don't budge, once locked in they are IN. A must have for any runner/gym person sick of slipping headphones or ones that just dont help you enjoy your workout.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Weightroom Good Sound.. Poor Quality
PROS: Good sound, retards surrounding noise somewhat, fairly comfortable, and stay in your ears well. CONS: Cheaply made and short out quickly (lasted about 1.5 months before shorted out), bulky and odd to get use to, fairly costly especially for no longer then they lasted. I am rough on my ear buds and wear them every day. My Apple ear buds have lasted almost 4 years and still work just worn out with no shorting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EricaPA Good for running
I picked these up on my way to the gym today and I have to say these are the best headphones I've found for running on the treadmill. Most headphones slip out but these stayed in place for the length of my workout. The sound quality is pretty good for the price. I would suggest going to the store and picking these up because I found them for [$] at my local dicks versus the [$] online price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Di Best I've found
I use these in the gym. I have small ears I guess and the Ipod buds would never stay in and hurt. These are very comfortable and haven't fallen out at all. The sound is okay also. The only downside is I found these on [@]at a significant savings. I wish I would have shopped around a little more.

I have tried and own more headphones than you can imagine. These are what I have searched for in many years. They fit well and stay in place no matter what activity you choose. These are the most comfortable and best sounding headphones for the value that I personally have ever found. The next test is longevity. I'll check back in at a later date and let you know if they hold up as well as they fit and sound.
