I recently gave an unfavorable review of the yurbuds inspire pro earbuds. In response, I got a comment from yurbuds apologizing for my bad experience with their product, and they wanted me to call them to resolve my problems with them. Kudos to them for that. Perhaps I was harsh in my review. Your experience with these earbuds might be much more positive than mine, so you should decide for yourself. I have heard several people say good things about yurbuds, and someone even told me that yurbuds were the best earbuds she ever bought. I should have put that in my review, and I sincerely apologize for not giving a more balanced point of view.

UPDATE: Yurbuds has contacted me and wants to make sure I’m satisfied. Read all about it here.
I bought some earbuds so I can listen to music while I walk. I got the wrong ones. I bought the Yurbuds Inspire Pro, and they suck.
On their website, they make the claim:
Yurbuds are ergonomically designed to avoid nerve rich areas of the ear. Made with medical grade silicone, Yurbuds are ultra soft and comfortable for hours on end.
But it’s pure lies. These things hurt after wearing them for only a few minutes. The sound quality is average at best.
One of their gimmicks is their “twist lock technology” which is supposed to keep them from falling out. And that is something that actually seems to work, but the pain these earbuds cause makes me want them to fall out.
This is an overpriced, underperforming product. Don’t waste your money.
Tickled my funny bone:

One of my favorite authors, Michael W. Dean, wrote a post over at his Libertarian Punk blog, about doing home recording on the cheap. He gives specifics about finding equipment with the most value for the best price, and tells you how to build a recording booth for less than ten bucks. This man knows what he’s talking about, and his opinion has the voice of experience behind it. Here’s a link to his low-down:

I’ve had this song stuck in my head for about two weeks now.
The song is “Cape Dory.” Enjoy.
This is the first installment of Music Monday. This week’s artist is Grouplove, and the song is “Colours.” Enjoy!
I now have 100 subscribers on YouTube, so I made another shout out video.
Here’s my latest ukulele cover. It’s “Penny Lane” by the Beatles.
“Penny Lane” is a song by The Beatles, written by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon/McCartney. Recorded during the Sgt. Pepper sessions, “Penny Lane” was released in February 1967 as one side of a double A-sided single, along with “Strawberry Fields Forever“. The song was later included on the Magical Mystery Tour LP (1967). The single was the result of the record company wanting a new release after several months of no new Beatles releases. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked the song at #449 on its list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
This is the first video I made since installing Windows with Sun Microsystems’ VirtualBox. I recorded the audio on my Sony MZ-NHF800 and used SonicStage to transfer the file to my computer and converted it to .WAV format. Then I used Audacity to add a tiny bit of reverb and a little bit of compression. After that, it was a simple matter of syncing the video and audio tracks in Kdenlive, cutting out the extra bits before and after the song, and adding the fade in/fade out. The URL graphic that pops up at the beginning was created with Inkscape.
I hope you enjoy. What is your favorite Beatles song?
