"These headphones are okay, the top part fell off and my fianc has been using just the bud, which due to its design doesn't fall off too easily, good for workout and just listening to music."
_
"So yeah, design and execution.. meh, not good."
_
"I have been disappointed in almost every aspect of the design."
_
"The behind-the-ear design is exceptionally uncomfortable - even painful."
_
"The ear loop is able to be adjusted somewhat to you ear, but current design is inadequate."

Fit

Fit:
"It won't be able to sit in your ear for more than an hour without your ear getting sore in the parts the headphone doesn't fit perfectly."
_
"My primary complaint is that the rubber fitting (what makes Yurbuds, Yurbuds) is a little uncomfortable with my ear shape."
_
"They aren't a perfect fit, so I will be contacting their customer service, as suggested right in the instructions, for alternate buds."
_
"Super comfortable, no rubbing or raw spots inside my ears, and I have a real problem with fit on earphones..."
_
"That one particular earpiece never fit properly anyway but I had such a hard problem finding the right headphones I liked that I figured I could work with it."
_
"The only problem is that the yurbuds themselves fit into the part that goes around your ear and that comes off."
_
"Fit the ears nicely and will not come off when put on correctly."
_
"The sound is decent but the ear pieces do not fit my ear canal very well and I doubt the shape of the ear canal plugs will block much backgound noise like Skull Candy earphones do."
_
"Features Adjustable for secure fit Ergonomic design for comfortable fit Sweat resistant & washable Allows ambient sound 4 foot cords"
_
"Pros COMFORTABLE Fits perfectly in your ear Twist lock technology making it nearly impossible to fall pout GREAT for working out Long cord Ear band is adjustable to secure a good fit Its sweat resistant & washableCons Absolutely none!"

Hook

Hook:
"Here's where I'm disappointed: the ear hooks are not adjustable, I had an old pair of Phillips I used to love but can't find again where it was super adjustbale which makes sense considering our ears are not all the same."
_
"The ear hook was broken off of the right side upon arrival..Surprisingly, though, at least as a bright side they stay in your ears pretty good even without the ear hooks."
_
"First and worst of all, the ear hooks stuck up above my ears instead of resting on them, which just made it even easier to knock them off than if there were no ear hooks at all."
_
"The plastic hooks meant to be attached to your ear is uncomfortable."
_
"I also found that they are hard to adjust so the hooks pushes my ear forward."
_
"My only complaint is that the over ear hook isn't as adjustable as I might have wanted."
_
"The ear hook was broken off of the right side upon arrival..Surprisingly, though, at least as a bright side they stay in your ears pretty good even without the ear hooks."
_
"First and worst of all, the ear hooks stuck up above my ears instead of resting on them, which just made it even easier to knock them off than if there were no ear hooks at all."
_
"ear hooks fall off of ear buds easily and get lost."
_
"Also the rubber hooks that go around the ears come off easily whenever I try to adjust them."
_
"The hook from the earbud to the ear is detachable and easily comes off, often."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Worst of all, they go haywire if your sweat gets on the mic, even though it's advertised as water- and sweat- resistant."
_
"Does not have microphone, was not clear in Advert ;("
_
"The microphone broke recently, so I'll probably upgrade to something with a little more snob-power on the audio side but these have been rock solid with fantastic output."
_
"Earphones work great stay in place and help ignore people at the gym, mic not great it has never worked, I have to remove the earphones to use the phone."
_
"Not as comfortable as the yurbuds that lack the ear loop, but the mic audio control is significantly better on this pair comparatively."
_
"Not that comfortable but the sound quality is good and the mic works good with cellphone."
_
"Third, the mic didn't work anywhere near as well as the one in the headphones that came with my iphone - and it picked up a lot of wind noise."
_
"Sound was a solid B and the mic was a nice option if that helps."
_
"Sweat doesn't damage the mic, control or headphones."
_
"I also love how it has a mic so I can make hand free calls while driving, and it works very well."
_
"They sound good during calls and I haven't had any complaints from the other end about the built in mic."

Music

Music:
"These headphones are okay, the top part fell off and my fianc has been using just the bud, which due to its design doesn't fall off too easily, good for workout and just listening to music."
_
"Also, the ear piece does not properly fit, so even if I am stationary, I am unable to fully enjoy the music being played."
_
"This is where these headphones really sound great when listening to Dance EDM music."
_
"I do love that you can hear music very well and still hear ambient noise."
_
"If you're looking for a part to use to talk on the phone with as well as listen to music, look someplace else, otherwise get the set that doesn't have a mic and pay less."
_
"On the other hand the surrounds do a great job of isolating music into your ear and keeping out ambient noise."
_
"Highly recommend for those who are active and like their music while running."
_

Noise

Noise:
"Second, the mic is in a heavy Y piece that hangs too low and bangs around and causes annoying noise in the earpiece when you are moving."
_
"Because there is a bad fit, the air noise is annoying while running."
_
"Broke after 10 minues of use, noises coming out instead of music....could not even get to the gym....."
_
"They are not noise cancelling, so might not be good for mowing, airline travel, etc."
_
"The enhancer tips that come along with it don't fit into my ears well like noise isolating buds do."
_
"I do love that you can hear music very well and still hear ambient noise."
_
"Oh, and back to the little rubber part that goes in your ear: Since it does not actually go INTO your ear like an earplug would, they don't block the surrounding noise very well."
_
"They let in ambient noise, which is great for running (so I can hear other people, bikes, cars, etc)."
_
"They block a good bit of background noise."

_
"The audio quality is not great, but look at the price."
_
"The sound is terrible, seriously there are a cheap pair of headphones cover in fancy plastic to stay in your ear and another plastic ear wrap around thingy."
_

_
"Not the most comfortable or the best sound but for the price cannot be beat"
_

_

_

Rubber

Rubber:
"My primary complaint is that the rubber fitting (what makes Yurbuds, Yurbuds) is a little uncomfortable with my ear shape."
_
"I like the ear phones but they have 2 major problems, I have 2 pairs, and the rubber ear pieces fall off both of them, they are small and very easily lost when they fall off."
_
"The rubber on the ear surrounds broke down, leaving sharp metal wire exposed."
_
"These headphones are pretty good in the sound department but beware that the rubber tips ( Enhancers) can fall off and then the headphones are useless."
_
"You can't get decent sound w o the rubber tip fitting down the ear canal and they won't once the tip is gone."
_
"(I usually buy Sony's around the ear sport phones) Only negative is that these yurbuds come with rubber ear bud enhancers that cost $20 to replace at best buy."
_
"Also the rubber hooks that go around the ears come off easily whenever I try to adjust them."
_
"Sony's other ones are better and I am going back because the loop around the ear is adjustable to all sizes, the rubber string is really comfortable, it doesn't come apart."
_
"As well, the rubber tips have come off as have one of the ear clips."
_
"I like the ear phones but they have 2 major problems, I have 2 pairs, and the rubber ear pieces fall off both of them, they are small and very easily lost when they fall off."

Size

Size:
"If you are someone that has found earbuds to not fit your ear, even with different sizes, you'll probably have the same problem with these."
_
"It may be that my ears are an odd size, but they do not work well for me or stay put when running."
_
"Unfortunately, this is a one size fits all sort of deal."
_
"These headphones are NOT one size fits all like they say they are, they are NOT easy to adjust and set up."
_
"Second, the silicone sleeve that sits in your ear canal can get uncomfortable after a time (being 1.5 hours for me); I attribute it to having the wrong size earbud but the company has great customer service."
_
"My only small complaint would be the sound quality is only good not great."
_
"Seem to be decent but like most small plug for tiny fingers and thin wire so long term not expected"
_
"Sony's other ones are better and I am going back because the loop around the ear is adjustable to all sizes, the rubber string is really comfortable, it doesn't come apart."
_
"I like the ear phones but they have 2 major problems, I have 2 pairs, and the rubber ear pieces fall off both of them, they are small and very easily lost when they fall off."
_
"They come with different sizes and you choose the one that fits best."
_
"I would say the only con in this product is the rubber wire that gets tangled easily, so I just try not to scrunch it up in a small pocket or something but leave it sprawled out somewhere instead."

_
"The Yurbud hurts the back of my ears... Sound is good, but they are uncomfortable."

Sport

Sport:
"For a SPORTS headphone... i wouldn't recommend it as such."
_
"In conclusion, i think their made not as good as they should be, seeing as their sports earphones and theres much wear and tear."
_
"It's really a problem since there are so few actual good sports headphones available."
_
"Unfortunately, there is a defect in the left earloop fit sport earphone behind the left ear and after a short running and in particular when sweat is involve the expected tightening behind the left ear does not maintain and the left earphone keeps falling."

"Let me be clear--these are the best alternative for running sports that I've found yet to earbud-style headphones."

Volume

Volume:
"These are very nice, but be aware if you use these at the gym there is a volume adjustment that is dead center of my chest..."
_
"I had to stop my run and come back home for a different set of headphones because it was on three quarter volume and it was just unbearable."
_
"I'm an avid audio book listener, so having earbuds with volume and pause play on cord makes it easier to adjust things during a run."
_
"Clarity at loud volume is great!"
_
"Love these headphones, only wish that the volume control function worked on something other than iPhone."
_
"3) The volume + - buttons went on the fritz pretty quick."
_
"Also the 3 button volume and song controls on the headphones are great for when you are running and do not want to stop and look at your phone."
