This was by far and away my favorite new product at CES this year. A must-have for audiophiles and novices alike...
Do Yurbuds also enhance better earbuds, like those made by Shure? Or are they a good tweak only for the (lousy) stock earbuds which typically come with iPods?
You pose an excellent question. As near as I can tell, Yurbuds could work with most any classic earbud that tends to suffer from a loose/sloppy fit in the outer ear, provided that the earbud housings are roughly the size and shape of Apple earbuds.
Interestingly, there is also a slightly differently sized/shaped Yurtopia model that is geared for use with the earpieces of typical Bluetooth devices.

@Chris Marten, thanks so much for the great review! You hit the nail right on the head in describing the company, product and value propositions and we really appreciate you taking the time to experience our yurbuds earbud enhancers!
@Chris Seymour, glad you got to see us and our new iPhone app at CES and FINALLY learn what your ear size is!
@TheArt, I'm pleased to inform you that yurbuds can, indeed, be used on other types of headphones. (We like to think of it as our product "playing well with others"...)
We actually designed an adapter kit that can be purchased at www.yurbuds.com that will help you adapt our product to MOST other headphones (as you can imagine, with thousands of varieties out, we don't have a comprehensive list but feel free to email us help [at] yurbuds [dot] com with your specific set and we'll get back to you with an answer ASAP).
Also, note that there are video instructions on YouTube (www.youtube.com/yurbuds) that provide instructions on how to install the adapter to a wide variety of other products, including BlueTooth mobile headsets.
Thanks to you all and happy listening!
