Yurbuds claims to be the only company to create an earphone that is guaranteed not to fall out. Its patented Ear-Lock Technology has just been honoured by the 2010 International Awards, referred to as ‘The World’s Most Prestigious Global Awards for New Product Design.’
Billed as ‘the official earbuds of Ironman’, the Yurbuds Ironman Series Earphones are now available at close to 600 of the top Best Buy Stores across the US.
"The success of our venture is founded on our ability to provide a product line that consumers need and retailers desire,” noted Seth Burgett, Ironman triathlete and CEO of Yurbuds.
“We provide solutions to our retail partners and help them grow their business in the earphone space. It is our goal to exceed the expectations of our consumer and our retail partner in every interaction."
"The Yurbuds Ironman Series Earphones are one of the top selling items in Best Buy’s new Health and Fitness category, and have exceeded our expectations for 2010," said Senior Buyer, Alan Smith of Best Buy.
Yurbuds’ 2011 product line-up will debut in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The company’s’ mission is: to transform the athletes’ experience through personalized service and exceptional audio products that integrate ergonomics and emotive design.
Burgett conceived his award-winning idea while training for a half-Ironman triathlon in 2007. Using his background in medical devices, he and his team have developed products that provide athletes with the ability to be active for hours while focusing on their workout and not their equipment.
Yurbuds can be found at Best Buy, Amazon.com, Yurbuds.com and premium retailers nationwide across the US.
