Yurbuds and JBL want to keep you company on those lonely runs and gym sessions with the new Inspire, Focus and Leap Wireless headphones.
The US headphone company founded by two Ironman triathletes, has teamed up with JBL to unveil a new sports headphone range and hopefully improve on the disappointing sound quality in its first round of fitness-friendly in-ears.
First up are the Inspire 300 in-ears and Focus 300 behind-the-ear headphones, which both pack the new JBL sound and still include Yurbud’s TwistLock technology to keep them in place. Both are the cheapest in the range and cost £34.99.
If you are willing to spend a little more, the Inspire 400 and Focus 400 both include a built-in microphone, volume control and the ability to skip tracks without reaching for your phone. If you have an iPhone, it will also play nice with Siri as well. These are both priced at £39.99.
Top of the pile are the Leap Wireless range in-ears and Liberty Wireless behind-the-ears. Both benefit from the JBL-powered sound and include a battery to keep them going for up to 16 hours. These are the most expensive of the lot and will set you back £79.99.
The entire range will be available to pack into your sports bag from October. Having tried the Yurbuds Inspire Limited Edition in-ears, we’ll be interested to know if the new partnership promises a big improvement in the audio department.
