Do they allow more control, or do they promote isolation?

Do you find that they work like treat, or are you forever yanking one of them out in an effort to have the best of both worlds?

What are your experiences, good and bad? Do you have any advice for someone considering buying a set? What kind of PA set-up works best with in-ears? What are the common pitfalls to avoid?
