Pros: I use these when I ski. I still get to hear the music and am aware of the sounds around me. Am able to cary on a conversation when riding up the lift without removing the earpiece. A very safe way to to ski and stay aware of you surroundings.
Cons: Longer battery life would be nice. I can get about 6 to 7 hours then needs recharging.
Summary: I wear theses under my ski helmet. I've used headphones and earbuds before but was always concerned about missing that sense of sound that you need when you have many people skiing around you. One miss call from someone coming down the hill can put you out for a year of skiing. I see a lot of kids with there headphones on with the music turned up so loud that they haven't a clue as to what is going on around them. These are the ones that can hurt you bad.
