Pros: Locking ear pieces, price
Cons: Hooks are worthless, more hassle to put on than worth
I had a set of the Yurbuds Ironman earbuds before I purchased these hooking ones.
The locking ear cushion is comfortable and doesn't fall out when working out, playing ice hockey or riding my bike. All without the use of the hook.
I tried these behind the ear looping earphones simply because I wanted to after having success with the non-looping versions.
I returned these almost as fast as I got them out of the package. The loop was difficult to lock over my ear while trying to twist the earpiece into place. They did not add any more stability and were more hassle than they were worth.
I re-purchased the twist lock style when I returned these looping ones and I am happier.
The style of ear insert is great for people like me who have small ear canals and cannot get the in-ear pieces to fit comfortably inside (if in at all, even with the smallest cushions).
