I’m not a music enthusiast at all. Beats headphones sound great to me! I like the sound quality, bu then again I’m not quite sure what all the fuss is about regarding these headphones. I know the reviews are mediocre and only average 3-4 stars on Amazon.
So why do the Beats headphones suck in my opinion? I went down to my local Best Buy and picked up the Urbeats earbuds for $99. I returned them on the 14th day, because they kept falling out of my ear when I would be running on the treadmill or elliptical. I tried different sizes, but they would continue to slide their way out once the sweat would start to get inside my ear.
I went ahead and swapped them out for the Powerbeats headphones. These ones go for $149 and they have a hook that goes over your ear to prevent them from popping out. However, the Powerbeats headphones would then start moving forward and I would have to keep twisting them to have the hook go back on my ear. How annoying! Again, I tried different sizes to no avail.
I ended up swapping them out for a pair of headphones that were being advertised as athlete headphones by athletes. The brand is called Yurbuds and they were $99. A lot to pay for a brand I’ve never heard of, but I had Reward Zone gift certificates and a $10 gift card. I think I ended up paying $60-$70 and still got the Geek Squad warranty. They sound alright, not a whole lot of bass, but they stay in my ear! I’ve been running with them now for about 3-4 days and I don’t have to go shove them back in my ear as much as I had to with the Beats headphones.
So there you have it. If you run into the same problem as me with the Beats headphones falling out of your ears while working out, try the Yurbuds for $99 at Best Buy. Let me know how they work for you.
