    Yurbuds - Anyone try these?

    I'm considering getting a set of yurbuds earphones. Naturally, this thread very well may go down the road of bashing earphone/trail users, but let's see how long it can stay on topic. Does anyone have experience with these?

    These headphones supposedly allow ambient noise in making them more suitable for when you're riding.
    For the record, I've never used headphones when trail riding, but on long road/dirt road rides sometimes it's just really nice to have some music happening to break up the monotony.

    These are the ones I'm considering: Inspire Pro | yurbuds

    The only thing worse than an inattentive rider is an inattentive rider with earbuds.

    What's worse than an opinionated person not reading what someone wrote prior to making an ignorant comment?

    Havent triedb thebyurbuds but they look like they may be hard to keep in. I use these sport phones by sanheiser, they stay in gret have volume control. They let in ambieny sound ok with the volume low and if im on the trail take one or both out till im back on the road. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0035J...pi=SL500_SY125

    Yurbuds are awesome and stay in better than any other headphone I've ever tried. They let in so much ambient noise that I have to crank them up on the road bike otherwise the wind noise overwhelms them. They are perfect for mountain biking. Go for it, you'll be happy.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!! I probably won't use them on the trails, but maybe on some low traffic days if I'm doing really high miles... The music helps on those days where you're on the saddle for more than 5 hours and is really nice on century rides to get back into a rhythm.

    Nah. It's okay. Just static. Thanks though.

    I just read if you have an iphone that there's a new HD one that's supposed to be pretty good.

    Nice looking buds, but they don't let the ambient noise in like the ones I posted making them not fit the bill.

    I just gotta wonder, if cycling is so dull to you, then why try to hid the fact with music?

    Maybe you need a new sport?

    Sometimes it's fun, sometimes it's training... How many miles do you ride per year?

    I guess I knew this thread was going to be a bad idea, but hey, I got one person to actually just simply offer their appropriate input so I should be happy with that, right?

    Does anyone use a Bluetooth speaker mounted? My iphone is my computer anyway. I'm not sure how the sound would be.

    Ok, so my iphone 5 mounted on my bike is just loud enough for me to enjoy, but hear all around me. No speaker needed.

    I unfortunately haven't tried these earbuds, but just wanted to say I enjoy riding my bicycle and maybe even enjoy it a bit more to music.

    I guess I should look on the bright side. All the off topic posts bring my thread up to the top...

    Yeah, I guess it wouldnt go over too well having earbuds reviews on MTBR.

    FWIW I use a Walkman w/ built in speakers so I piss off everyone, not just the guy trying to pass on the left.
    I'm a ******bag in real life so I dont have to be one on the interwebz.

    People automatically speaking negatively towards someone seeking headphones that specifically are designed to allow the rider to hear his surroundings is stupid. God forbid we look for solutions that make everyone happy. Not to mention I specifically said I'm seeking them for long road rides where I'm on the saddle for 8 hours and longer... On a road with a huge shoulder that goes for miles and miles, headphones are not a danger or a nuisance to anyone.
