I should qualify this post with a statement that I love Yurbuds. I loved the Yurbuds before I even tried these new Signature Series LaMichael James Yurbuds. I have been looking for better and believe I found what I am looking for in these headphones. Why was I searching for newer/better Yurbuds? Well, mainly because the cord was constantly getting tangled. It was annoying, but not a problem limited to Yurbuds.
