Engadget Review

Nura helped pioneer the trend of headphones with personalized sound. The Nuraloop brings that technology to a smaller, sport-friendly form factor. Not only that, but almost all the smart features we enjoyed from the original model have returned. The ability to connect them via Bluetooth and 3.5mm makes them more versatile than most wireless buds, while active noise cancelation rounds out the feature list. A few minor usability quirks might be annoying to some, but overall these are a stellar option for sporty music lovers.
