Yurbuds Leap Wireless Earphones for Women–Product Review

image     image

I’ve had the Leap Wireless for Women earphones since Christmas.  They are an amazing product from Yurbuds.  I’ve worn them a lot.  Like more than a lot.  For the first time ever, I’m free of the dreaded “cord”.  I enjoy listening to music during workouts but have always had a big issue being tethered to my music source.  This has resulted in my NOT using music on the majority of my workouts.  All that has changed.

Since my Plantar Fasciitis has been so bad this winter, I’ve done more and more workouts inside.  In fact, I’ve ran a “few” miles on the indoor track at the YMCA of DeKalb.  I can’t chance being outside and slipping or falling on the endless sheets of black ice that we’ve had so far this winter.  So I’m inside, running around a track that requires 9 laps for each mile.  I don’t necessarily mind the circles knowing that I have a safe environment for running but what I do mind is being strangled by my earphone cord.  All of my running clothes have one pocket, always in the pants.  It’s a zipper pocket on my waistband located in the small of my back.  I would zip my phone into that pocket and try to deal with my earphone cord being wrapped around my body.  It was driving me CRAZY.  So I tried to plug my earphones in from behind so that my cord was down my back.  Yeah, that didn’t work.  THEN I tried running with my phone in my hand like I see so many amazingly coordinated women do and I about lost my phone down on the basketball courts because I was sweaty and my butterfingers couldn’t hold onto it! 


Now I’m running, lifting, riding on the trainer, and swinging my kettle bell to the sky & back all while jamming to my favorite tunes.  The Yurbuds Leap Wireless earphones have helped me get my grove back and start to tackle workouts that I haven’t attempted in a long time.  I’m back to CrossFit workouts.  And I’m lifting real weights.  In the gym.  With the boys.  All while pretending I’m the only one around by focusing on my music and my workout NOT the cord and definitely not the sweaty boys that spend more time looking at their phones than they do lifting those giant weights!  I even managed a workout at home this morning since it was too icy to go out!


After a quick WOD this morning, I jumped on the trainer to ride.  I normally ride while watching Michael’s favorite children’s programming (Barney the Dinosaur or Paw Patrol) but today I was in my own little world with my Leap Wireless for Women earphones.  Yay!  I’ve never been able to have music while I ride for lack of a place to put my phone to stream the music!  Problem solved!

Okay, I love them, right?  Now for some of the more technical details, regarding the Leap Wireless for Women earphones:

  • Ergonomically designed for comfort
  • Twistlock Technology
  • Smaller in ear design/fit for women with multiple size ear pieces
  • 6 hour battery life
  • Easy Bluetooth connectivity
  • Ability to change songs, adjust volume or answer phone calls with the touch of a button
  • I also like that while the sound quality is good, my Yurbuds (wired or wireless) NEVER drown out the sound around me.  I like to hear my music but I need to be aware of my surroundings.  I don’t know if this is a plus or minus for others but it’s the primary reason why I don’t use some of the high quality earphones in my collection.  Really big deal for me.

The cost of the Leap Wireless for Women earphones is $99.99.  You can buy them a number of places or just grab yours from Yurbuds dot com.  I hope they are a game changer for you as much as they have been for me.  They have given me the confidence to focus on me and MY workout.  For that I’m grateful.  I hope they serve up some magic for you as well.  Smile

Yurbuds Inspire for Women Review & Giveaway


If you haven’t heard the buzz about the new Yurbuds for women, then you probably have a toddler in the house I’m here to spread the news!  In the last couple of weeks, Yurbuds has launched a new product line designed for women by women.   They released the Inspire for Women earphones.  


At first glance, one might assume that they just “colored up” the normal Yurbuds but these were specifically designed to fit smaller ears.  According to the spec sheet below they also feature the patented TwistLock Technology and they are sweat and water proof!


  • Designed specifically to fit smaller ears
  • TwistLock (TM) Technology – Guaranteed to never fall out
  • Flexsoft (TM) Comfort Fit – Ergonomically designed to avoid nerve rich areas of the ear
  • Sweat & Water Resistant – Designed for active use
  • Exceptional Sound – Clinically proven acoustics
  • Angled-Flex Plug

My number one issue with earphones is that they do not fit my ear.  If I take music on a run I rarely use it or I “save” it for when I need it.  I am never able to listen long because my earphones dig into my ears and hurt.  And I can’t even count the number of times that I have made the decision to turn on the music and I don’t get any sound because the wires and/or device got wet and wouldn’t work.  I stopped taking music with me for the above reasons.   It was for these same reasons that I honestly wanted to try the Yurbuds Inspire for Women.

They came in the mail and I was tentatively excited (iPod not included).

Yurbuds Inspire_package

There are two sizes of earphones in each package.  I compared them to a penny as a point of reference and am super happy my old bar skillz of standing a coin on end FINALLY came in handy!

Yurbuds Inspire_size & penny 

I opted to try the smaller set since the larger size is the approximate size of an iPod earbud and that is normally too large for my ear.    They fit perfectly.  First use was indoors on the treadmill.  I plugged in while the family was milling around the house and crossed my fingers!  I am normally not able to hear my music unless its blaring because life around me is “abuzz”.  However, these earphones twisted in, fit well and I was immediately impressed with the sound quality AND how loud my player was from its last session.  I was able to turn down the volume considerably and still hear the tunes.  Plus, I kept thinking that the music just SOUNDED so much more vibrant (can I use this word for SOUND?) than normal.  Hmmmmm…..  So strange.  So I ran, was sweaty and nasty, able to hear the music the entire time and the sound was sooooo much better than I remembered.  The earphones never hurt my ears and they never moved.  In fact, I was so intent on the sound of the music, I forgot about the earphones all together.  This is good for me!  Sweaty photo below.

I’ve since tried the Yurbuds Inspire for Women earphones multiple times both indoors and out and I’m in love with these things.  They sound “normal” when only using one earphone but really shine on the sound quality front with both earphones locked into position.  Oh yeah, and they fit my ear!  They fit when I run, when I do the StairMaster and Elliptical.  Next up, a Tae Bo workout.  If they can survive Billy Blanks, then they will survive any fitness activity!

I’m definitely going to pick up a pair of these babies in pink for Aby for Christmas.  I know the size of earphones is always an issue for her tiny ears as well.  I’m super excited about this new product!

The Yurbuds Inspire for Women are exclusively sold at Target and Target.com.  They are reasonably priced at $29.99 and I’m going to get a pair for Aby ASAP before the holiday rush begins next week!!!  If you would like to grab a pair now without getting out of your PJs then click HERE to shop!  Or you can always try to win these:
