I'm on my second pair of these and really like them for exercise. They're definitely good in terms of microphonics. The second set seems to be better than the first as the cable has changed some. I also like the variety of tips that they come with. And they're down to under $17 on Amazon.

I have that bag too and its great. Not as easy to carry around as a true back pack but the shoulder strap does work really well.

That was one of my first thoughts too. They list epub, ereader, and pdfs. No talk about what DRM is supported though which is rather important.
