Earbuds have become commonplace in today’s world — we have grown accustomed to seeing people on the street and on public transit using them. But they can also be a major nuisance. How many times have you moved only to have them ripped out of your ears by the ridiculously long cords which tend to catch on everything?
Wireless is the obvious answer and YurBuds recently showed off its latest model. These are actually meant for exercise, but they will work just fine in your home as well. The design is such that the earbuds stay in, regardless of activity — even a gymnast could use them, the company claims. YurBuds also claims the Bluetooth connectivity is good to up to 100 feet, and that water and sweat repulsion is no problem. Retail is $169.95 and they device is available now.
