Not so very long ago, I was gushing like a school girl over yurbuds and how they changed my life - well, at least the part of my life that involves running with earphones. And then, my highly coveted yurbuds died an untimely death and I was left alone with nothing more than the sound of silence.
[Insert cricket sound]
That didn't last long. After spending entirely too much time inside my own head, I decided to fork over the $$ and replace the ole yurbuds, because my first pair was truly remarkable. They never EVER slipped and the sound quality was superb, and frankly, that's about all I really care about when it comes to earphones.
But as with most things in life, it simply hasn't been the same the second time around. I was so excited when my replacement pair arrived in the mail and couldn't wait to hit the pavement with some new tunes. Instead, I spent most of the time fidgeting with the earpiece and trying to find a way to get the dadgum things to stay in my ears. I thought maybe I just needed to give them a little time - break them in - and maybe they'd mold to my ears (which by the way, are not freakishly shaped in any way... at least I don't think... so if you're thinking that perhaps it's my own fault, well then you'd be wrong... I think).
But several months and countless head-on collisions later (due to me looking down at the yurbuds, rather than straight ahead), I've just about given up on these suckers. Maybe I just got some duds this time. I really can't explain why I've had such a different experience with this second pair, but I simply can't give the same raving review I once did.
We've had some good times together, yurbuds, but I think it's time to admit that we've grown apart. Things just aren't the same between you and me... and I think we both know whose fault that is.
