Well I finally splurged and bought an iPod, and Shure e2c headphones. Holy crap these things sound good. They're sound isolation buds, so they actually slip into your ear canal, totally blocking out outside sounds.
Anways, if you're looking for a good set of headphones, these are the way to go. Kinda expensive though, around $80, maybe a bit cheaper if you get em from a shady place.
