yurbuds: Adventure Like No Other
No one knows Adventure like yurbuds. In a staunch advocacy dedicated towards the athlete and the outdoor community, yurbuds®, maker of the number one sport earphone in the United States guaranteed never to hurt or fall out, comes out with its newest offering: the new Adventure series geared towards the outdoor community. yurbuds continues to design sport equipment for the needs of every type of athlete.
As an avid hiker, yurbuds designer Aaron Gorga is in tune with the outdoor community. By listening closely to the needs of his network, he created an innovative earphone that looks and feels like “gear” a hiker, climber or adventurer would use.
“Extreme outdoor athletes are accustomed to durable, water resistant gear that has a certain rugged look and feel,” said avid hiker and yurbuds designer Aaron Gorga, lead designer of the Adventure Line. “All of the details, such as the cord’s joint housing, location of the vents, and the way we layered materials were rethought and improved to exceed expectations.”
The new Adventure Line features all classic yurbuds qualities including a sweat and water resistant design for active use, FlexSoft™ comfort fit and TwistLock™ Technology that is guaranteed to never fall out. Additionally, the Adventure Line has tangle-resistant, rubberized woven cords which increase the water resistance to the IPX 5 level. The housing design and snap fit enhancers provide premium sound quality, and the QuikClik™ magnets allow for easy storage and access on the go.
The Adventure Line includes both in-ear “Venture” models and over-the-ear “Explore” models. The Venture and Explore Talk include a one-button microphone and is compatible with all smart phones including Android devices. The Explore Talk offers added comfort and support with a behind-the-ear design featuring soft, moldable ear loops.
“We are excited to release a new line that really delivers everything our adventurous customers want in an earphone,” said Daniel DeVille, Director of Marketing for yurbuds. “From concept to development and manufacturing, the Adventure Line was created not only for our community, but also with them.
Designed to withstand the toughest outdoor conditions, the Adventure Line is guaranteed to never hurt, fall out, or lose sound quality, no matter how intense the journey. They are the first of their kinds created to work seamlessly with the enthusiast’s other outdoor gear.
The Adventure Line series is available in the following outlets: Power Mac Center, Runnr, Planet Sports, R.O.X., Columbia Sportswear, & Mountain Hardwear. For additional information on yurbuds, visit yurbudsph on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter or check out http://www.yurbuds.com.
