Yurbuds introduces the new 3-button dry mic featuring a sweat-and-water resistant microphone and music control.

Launching in Apple Stores throughout North America, Yurbuds has released the newest design in the Ironman Series of earphones, featuring the 3-Button Dry Mic. As part of Yurbuds exclusive Ironman Series, endorsed by World Triathlon Corporation’s Ironman brand, the Yurbuds Ironman 3-Button Dry Mic earphones feature a sweat-and-water resistant microphone and music control. Available in an earbud style or behind-the-ear earloop, the new product continues the innovations which made Forbes Magazine name Yurbuds one of the top ten most promising companies in America in 2009.

“Music is what drives us and inspires us,” says designer, president and CEO Seth Burgett, an Ironman triathlete. “With Yurbuds 3-Button Dry Mic, feedback is eliminated and it can withstand getting wet. You will not have to work-out without music again. Plus, the acoustics are exceptional.”

Yurbuds 3-Button Dry Mic earphones are designed to work with Apple’s iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The 3-Button Dry Mic earphones were developed with the user in mind, creating a sweat-and-water resistant earphone in which the volume can be changed very easily while moving. A button controls the user’s music tracks and phone. The 3-Button Dry Mic product will be the first Yurbuds product sold in Apple Stores, and includes two sizes of interchangeable ear buds in each box, at $59.99. All Yurbuds earphones are guaranteed to never fall out or hurt even in the most rigorous conditions. All Yurbuds earphones feature:

Patented TwistLock technology, allowing the earphones to stay put in the ear Sweat-and-water resistance

A personalized fit to the user’s ear, available in multiple sizes. An ergonomic funnel shape that avoids sensitive nerve-rich areas of the ear and creates superior sound quality ambient noise protection, allowing sounds outside to be heard, such as a passing car or the ability to have a conversation while listening to music.

Burgett designed Yurbuds for those who practice everyday fitness regimens. As an engineer, he designed Yurbuds, along with a team of audiologists, because, “I would finish six hours of training and realize my ears hurt worse than the rest of my body. I decided to produce my own earphones, originally based on a digital scan of the ear.”
