I have decided in the year of 2015 I shall set of on a quest to find the best headphones for skiing (or boarding) ever made, so without further ado, here is my review of the 2014/15 Yurbud Inspire 100.
I bought these headphones because I am staying at a friend's house for three weeks and broke the one pair of headphones I brought on day 3 or 4 (stupid me.) Anyways, saw these at Target, looked cool, and were pretty cheap, so I decided to buy them and now here we are.
These will not fall out... like at all. They quite literally stay in your ears all day. Dawn to Dusk. I have been thoroughly impressed with their ability to stay in during moguls, tricks, riding switch and face-planting. They are pretty god damn comfortable too, it takes about 7 hours with goggles, beanie, and helmet before they start to bother me, and as a 4-5 hour skier I am typically pleased with the way my ears feel after riding. Without a helmet or goggles I could leave these guys in all day. 1 point knocked off because they do eventually start to become bothersome and I am looking for the best riding headphone, which is one that will never bother me.
No mic, no pause play, if you want to talk to people on the lift you gotta pull out your phone/ipod, take of the gloves and turn it off yourself... So basically no talking to people on the lift.
Overall Sound: 7/10
They aren't bad...
ehh... I have heard much much better...
The cord is a little thin and tangles easily, the rubber ear piece falls off occasionally and the jack is a little awkward.
I haven't had these long enough to see when they break, I will update as soon as I break them. (Its been about 7 days of riding and 15 of general use)
These things are pretty cheap as far as headphones go, I would say they are a good value.
Final Score: 6.08/10
The sound is decent, the fit is great, they are cheap and they will never fall out of your ears. Major points knocked off for no controls or mic. All in all, if you don't have headphones these will work... If you have some that you are happy with, I wouldn't recommend buying them
