Yurbuds Inspire Duro Headphone Review

Yurbuds Inspire Duro Headphones Review

Have Yurbuds managed to achieve the impossible and develop a headphone that doesn’t fall out under intense workouts?  Or is this yet another claim that’s fallen on deaf ears.  Lets find out…








For me these headphone tick all the boxes, finally…

When it comes to Headphones I have to admit I’m a bit of a closet hoarder, I’ve purchase numerous pairs over years in many different forms.  If I stop and think why, the main reason seems to be that I’ve yet to find a pair that meets all of my needs.  They’re either uncomfortable, poor quality, loose fitting or simply don’t sound great.  As I –  and I’m sure many of you – spend a great deal of my time in the gym, choosing a pair of headphones that don’t fall out whilst training, remain comfortable and are impervious to sweat seems somewhat of a tall order.

The Yurbuds Inspire Duro IRONMAN Series Headphones are aimed at the sportier end of the market, the name being derived from it’s durability credentials including a woven cloth cord that doesn’t tangle and is tear resistant.  Not only this, but the Inspire Duro has a host of other features including Twistlock technology, FlexSoft comfort fit, sweat AND water resistance as well as providing good awareness of ambient noise around you.  Supporting all of this like a veritable Charles Atlas, the Yurbuds Inpsire Duro comes with a lifetime warranty.

There are other models available in the Performance Fit range; Behind The Ear, Signature and even a Limited Edition Series, all of which are available in a range of colours to suit your personal taste.  Another team point should be awarded to Yurbuds for offering women specific headphones, a tip of the hat in recognition that men and women are anatomically different.  The women specific series are also available in a wide range of colours.

Until we’ve had an opportunity to review the Yurbuds Inspire Duro IRONMAN Series in detail, please refer to the “First Impressions” tab for further details.

Yurbuds Inspire Duro IRONMAN Series conjures up a vivid image of exactly who theses headphones are aimed at and the type of activity where they may excel, however, I have to say in the past I’ve been disappointed by the empty promises of manufacturers.  The list of features offered by the Inspire Duro left me with that same sinking feeling; I’ve tried so many pairs that just don’t deliver on your expectations I’ve become somewhat cynical over time, I’m almost pre-programmed to expect the inevitable.  Well… the years of searching for the holy grail could well be over as the Inspire Duro, I’m please to say, really do what it says on the tin.








The testing we’ve carried out thus far has bore fruit beyond our expectations and the Inpsire Duro are currently our number one choice.  When you consider Yurbuds have been designed by Athletes for Athletes, it’s not surprising but they really do Inspire confidence and have an air durability about them, from the soft silicone earpieces








To the flexible, tangle free and tear resistant cord.  Not to mention the quality 3.5mm phone jack which is angled to prevent cable fracture.  Kudos Yurbuds!








The earphone is ergonomically designed to avoid the nerve rich areas of the ear








and because they are made with ultra soft silicon








they stay comfortable and fitted for hours on end.  These Flexisoft silicone ear pieces also detach from the earphones making it easy to clean them after use which is perfect after an intense workout.DSC_1726







Finally and perhaps the most important aspect is the sound quality, which we’re happy to report is an area in which the Inpsire Duro excels.  From the rich deep bass , soaring trebles and punchy mid-range these headphones delivery time after time.  Another area they put in a solid, sonic performance is their ability to balance ambient noise with whatever it is you’re listening to.  I personally have found headphones which cancel out noise to a greater extent leave me feeling detached and somewhat disorientated, especially when running, but the Inspire Duro headphones feel great!

We’ve been really impressed if not blow away by these headphones, to find something that excels in all areas is quite a rarity and one we don’t intend letting go…
