Yurbuds new Inspire wireless earphones retail for $129.99 at Yurbuds official website. While not cheap, I found them to be a great listening experience for hitting the gym or the track, and well worth their price point. The Inspire wireless earphones feature a mostly black frame with a couple of red highlights. Included in the package are a few different sized “enhancers”, which are basically the soft silicone ear pieces that interface directly with your ears. Not being made from traditional rubber like most ear bud sizers, the silicone enhancers are very comfortable and soft, making it easy to wear for several hours at a time.
Connecting the Inspire wireless earphones to your iPhone, which is what I use for my runs, is very simple and took just moments. Unlike most earbuds that go inside your ear, the Inspire actually let me hear a bit of what was going on around me – a very important and safe factor to take into account, especially if running outside.
Wearing the Inspire wireless earphones, I was very impressed with their audio quality – thanks to their 15mm drivers. While their low end sound wasn’t as “booming” as traditional headsets I have tried, it is important to note that these are meant for sports wearing. You shouldn’t be drowning out what’s going on around you with bass. The Inspire earphones do a great job in the mid to high range, and, even with the weaker lows, music sounded wonderful and crisp.
The “Twistlock” technology touted by the Yurbuds Inspire wireless earphones is no joke. The enhances are shaped in a somewhat of a spiral that “lock” into your ears. It may take you a couple times to get the twisting motion correct but, once you do, the Inspire wireless earphones aren’t easily pulled out of your ears. After lengthy sessions of jogging and plyometric work, they stayed in and stayed in tight. The Inspire earphones deliver on their promise to not come out. I should note that we had someone reviewing this item before myself, and he could not get the Inspire to fit into his ears, even with the several sized enhancers provided. So, if you have especially small ear holes, you might want to try before you buy just to be safe.
Yurbuds has enhanced the usual braided cord found on many headphones these days by using a cloth material which is much softer than most while still providing great anti-tangle qualities. The Inspire features a very long battery life and charges via an include mini USB cable. In my testing, I had some one instance where I didn’t have to charge the Inspire for about a week’s time. In addition, the built-in microphone works very well for taking calls on the go. There are only a few buttons on the Inspire, and they are very easy to locate and operate, unlike some earphones which opt for “high-tech” touch controls.[ezcol_1half]Pros
