OK, first the good: These are super -comfortable and really secure. I bought them because they are really low-profile and work well under a moto helmet. They don't come out of my ears while I'm putting my helmet on or taking it off. Exactly what I needed.

The controls are excellent. Volume, pause/unpause, next track, previous track. Everything you need at your fingertips.

The bad: The bass response isn't great, but for this price, what do you expect (I guess). It's not terrible - you can still hear where the bass is supposed to be, it just won't blow your mind when you throw in some hip-hop or dubstep. The other not-so-great thing is the instructions, or the lack thereof. You're on your own when it comes to figuring out the controls. So I'll help - click the center button once to pause/unpause. Click it twice for next track and three times for previous track. Volume is self-explanatory.

Overall, I'm super-happy with these. I gave them 5 stars because of super-clean sound, and I kinda figured the bass wouldn't be anything amazing at this price.

The question you have to ask yourself is, “Do I want to be comfortable hiking or do I want to be comfortable sleeping.” I chose the former when I headed out to hike the AT. I decided that saving money and weight were more important than having the super comfy sleep setup. I'm glad I did. These pads aren't all that comfortable but they weigh almost nothing, cost very little, and are fine swinging around on the back of a backpack rather than inside it. I got used to slightly uncomfortable sleeping pretty easily and I think the payoff was worth it.

I've had my rack for 5 years and 3 cars now and it's been absolutely great. These crossbars are super super strong. I've loaded these things up with 100's of pounds of gear and driven across the country--they were flawless. A friend of mine in NC even rolled his car with his racks on (not on purpose) and the rack held up. The roof didn't. I was pretty impressed. I couldn't tell if he was...

These work surprisingly well except for a couple of shortcomings that I can see. They are truly a bastard to pull apart (as are most skins). But that comes with the territory. I wish they were made for each size of split board, instead of just two sizes that are too short on purpose. Also a clippable tail would be a cool addition, too. Other than that they work really well.
