Review: Yurbuds Inspire LE BT Limited Edition Performance Fit Bluetooth Headphones
I picked up a pair of Yurbuds Inspire LE BT Limited Edition Performance Fit Bluetooth Headphones after a pair of cheap headphones started acting up and an older pair of Motorola ones were damaged during a workout.
When I picked up these sports ear buds they were on sale at a local electronics big box store and I didn’t bother to research them since they were made by JBL. I had seen a couple different people at the gym using them and they said they liked them. So I figured for the price they were worth a try.
The first thing I noticed were the two sets of ear bud pads didn’t fit that well and were a little uncomfortable. The instructions said I could take some pictures of my ears and they would custom make a pair of pads for me. After more test fitting I decided on one of the packaged pads and used them for about a week before I decided they were comfortable. They do take some time getting use to.
One of the more annoying things about this set is that it is designed or at least shown with the cable from ear bud to ear bud as going behind the neck. But I found that its way to short for that. When I’m lifting weights and leaning forward the buds pull free from my ears (advertised as guaranteed not to fall out). So to resolve this issue I have to hang the cable under the chin. Even then its to short. The cord needs another one to two inches to add to the comfortableness.
For over a year I have been using the Yurbuds Inspire LE BT Limited Edition Performance Fit Bluetooth Headphones and I’m impressed with the quality. For the price tag of about $20, you can’t find a pair of Bluetooth headsets that will last more than a few months.
I use these guys for everything. In the spring and early fall I work for my friend’s landscaping company and I work outside for four to eight hours several times a week and I would wear these for at least four hours and then throw them on the charger when I was at lunch and then use them again after they were charged up. But after about 8 months of use, I noticed that the up time was slowly getting worse. Now it takes about an hour an half to charge and I get about 2 hours of use.
Thirteen months into using the ear buds, the ear buds where the power port is located falls apart if you try to pull the plug out of the port. You have to hold it just right or the ear bud falls apart. You can put it together and still works fine.
When it comes to the music the common complaint was the sound quality isn’t that good. I would have to agree. You can hear the music, but the base isn’t what’s advertised. I think listening to pod casts, talk radio and audio books works best for these. But don’t let that stop you from purchasing these. They do sound pretty good for a $20 price point.
I’ve tried using the headset to talk on the phone with. It works great for hearing but the person on the other end can’t hear me. They hear the back ground noise or a hollow sound that blocks out my voice.
Overall I like the ear buds. Would I buy them again? Maybe. It depends on my budget when I need to replace my headphones. If I have more money to spend on a pair of headsets then I will buy a better pair. If not and I can find these for around $20 I think I would buy another pair.
