Hump Day Giveaway: Yurbuds Inspire Female Headphones

6th November 2012, By: SBS, Tags: , ,

A yurbuds giftpack: the new Inspire ‘buds, engineered just for us women; plus a yurbuds sweaty band; an Inspire towel to wipe away all the sweat the band doesn’t catch; and a tiny Luna bar for a post-run bite. We’ve got three of these sweet packs to giveaway.

I don’t profess to be hip; I just don’t want to be dubbed a geek, a nerd, or a square. (Do people even use that term anymore? Does fact I just did actually make me a “square”?!) I freely admit to not knowing at least half the “celebrities” in USWeekly and having seen only two movies in theatres this year–make that one if you discount “Brave”. The only jeans I own that aren’t from the Gap or Target are hand-me-downs from my taller mother runner pal.

But music: There’s something I’m up on. As I wrote in Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving–and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity, I have myriad ways of finding new songs and staying up on current releases, including Spotify, Pandora, Shazam app, Entertainment Weekly. heck, even NPR.

Recent tags on my Shazam app.

Once I’ve garnered a bunch of boppy tunes, I love making a playlist of them and sharing them on our site. Somehow it all makes me feel younger and, okay, just a little hip. I might never again run a sub-1:50 half-marathon or bust out mile-repeats in 7:15 like I could just a few they-sure-felt-like-short years ago.  But, dang it, I started listening to “Some Nights” by Fun. months ago, and I bought P!nk’s latest CD the day it was released.

One music-related item I’ve been hip to for numerous years is yurbuds sport earphones. The first models of these incredibly comfortable, stay-put-no-matter-what earphones came out in 2008; soon after testing them for a magazine review, I was a complete convert. Now the company has debuted ones made specifically for women–the Inspire Female In-ear Headphones–and I’m loving them. The silicone FlexSoft portion that goes in your ears are, like their name implies, flexible and soft, and they are smaller than the unisex versions. (The women’s version also comes with two sets of earbuds so you can get an ideal fit.)

Another must-have for me: an extra-long cord. When I stash my iPod in the pocket of my skirt, I don’t feel the earbuds might get yanked out at any point–there’s plenty of play in the cord to allow me to move my head (and arms) freely. Plus, the fastinista in me loves the women’s Inspire are available in six colors.

Think of the female Inspire line as Skittles for your ears.

Three lucky ladies will get to experience the comfort and sound quality. Whoops:  I forgot to  mention the stereo sound yet the ability to hear ambient sound, like cars coming up behind you or friends cheering from the sidelines. Anyway, three lucky runners will get a pair of these new yurbuds as part of a package of goodies, including a yurbuds Sweaty Band, Luna Bar and towel.

To enter, scroll down under this post on our site and click on the Post a Comment orange ribbon, and tell us: What song is making you feel hip these days? It can be one you listen to while running, pound out on the steering wheel of your minivan, or sing to your colicky baby. (‘Cuz I’ll admit: I also love getting song suggestions from our tribe of mother runners, so this question is somewhat self-serving!) Sing it out, and tell us the song. 

[Some fine print for this fine prize.] This sweepstakes is open to those over 18 and residents of the United States. It begins on 11/7/12 and ends on 11/13/12; the winner will be announced on 11/17/12. One entry per person. The value of each prize is $50. The number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning. Void where prohibited by law.

    When I run, I listen primarily to Ladies. My warmups begin with Nervous Breakthrough by Luscious Jackson, then Aannie Lennox’s Little Bird. Then when I speed up, I listen to the Run Lola Run soundtrack. Like Lola in the movie, it really gets me moving. :)

    Singing, er, shouting, Dynamite in the car with my 8-year old is pure bliss. But Good Time by Carly Rae Jepsen gets my feet moving!
