ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) July 16, 2012
yurbuds®, maker of the sport earphones featuring patented TwistLock™ technology, guaranteed never to fall out, launches its newest product in the company’s Personalized Series line of products. With earphones already available in sizes five through ten, the new Size Four offers a design suitable for those with smaller ears looking to find a comfortable fit.
While many yurbuds products come with size five earphones – the most popular size option – the Personalized Series allows for customers to receive a personalized fitting from specialty running store personnel or yurbuds customer service.
Constantly evolving to meet the needs of every customer, from the endurance athlete to the more casual user, yurbuds recently expanded its Ironman Series with a new in-ear design compatible with all Smartphone models – the Inspire Talk. The Size Four is the first expansion to the Personalized Series since it first launched in 2009.
yurbuds was founded with the understanding that no two ears are the same prompting the company to create the Personalized Series to provide a perfect fit for each individual. The Size Four sport earphones will allow even more people to experience yurbuds’ exceptional fit and comfort.
The Personalized Series Size Four, like all yurbuds products, is designed by athletes for athletes and features the unique TwistLock™ Technology guaranteeing the earphones will stay in place through the most extreme workouts. The new Size Four earphones are also sweat and water resistant with ultra-soft comfort enhancers staying true to the yurbuds product quality.
The Personalized Series Size Four will be available July 16 in yurbuds specialty running stores. Runners and other athletes interested in picking up the Size Four, or any of the other sizes available in the Personalized Series, can visit yurbuds.com to find the specialty retailer nearest them.
Each yurbuds model is designed to contour to the human ear so they are comfortable and provide premium sound quality, even while in motion. Designed as true sport equipment, yurbuds are sweat proof, water resistant and provide ambient noise protection allowing outside sounds, such as passing cars, to be heard.

yurbuds was founded in 2008 by Seth Burgett, President and CEO, an active triathlete and Richard Daniels, COO, a 22-time marathoner. Burgett and Daniels left their corporate roles and joined forces to improve personal performance. They have been joined by Craig Ceranna, Partner and Managing Director, to realize the company's mission: transform the athlete's experience through personalized service and exceptional audio products that integrate ergonomics and emotive design.
Burgett developed his award winning idea for personally-sized earbuds while training for an Ironman 70.3 triathlon. An avid runner and triathlete, Burgett found that his iPod® earphones were painful and very often fell out of his ears during training. Utilizing his background in minimally invasive surgical devices, Burgett and his team, including audiologists and industry design leaders, developed a patented ergonomically designed earbud enhancer that could be personally sized through the use of proprietary imaging technology. The resulting product, yurbuds, is an ergonomically brilliant, acoustically driven headphone which is guaranteed not to fall out, even at extreme activity levels, while still providing an unparalleled level of comfort and fidelity.
As a company, yurbuds was named Forbes 9th Most Promising Company in America for 2009. yurbuds has also won awards for its products and marketing, including a 2010 GOOD DESIGN AWARD and 2011 "Site of the Day" for Awwwards.
