Price range?
What style do you prefer? (earbud, the neckband kind, or the traditional style)

Personally, I like earbuds, so I'd recommend these:

Here's a review of them @ CNet:
http://reviews.cnet.com/Sennheiser_C...-31726275.html

As for the ones joxley posted, they look pretty good, but I don't really like the idea of noise cancelling. It's kind of hard to explain, but basically they have a tiny microphone that picks up sounds, and they try to cancel them out with sound waves of the opposite polarity of the ones it picks up. Good concept, but I just don't really like it. I prefer sound isolation, which is like the earplugs concept.

Looks nice, but I have something against Centrios and Nexxtech.

The Centrios ones aren't that expensive, but watch out for thin cords. Usually earbuds that go in-ear or are canalphones, tend to have noise travel up the cords like you're wearing a stethoscope. That's one of the reasons why Shure earbuds have such thick wires.

If you can afford them, the best in-ear/canalphones are from Etymotic Research and Shure. They're expensive, but the sound quality and the construction quality makes it all worth it.

Lol, who would buy these:

They must be really good though. And yeah, the cord is like 3 times the thickness of the regular iPod headphone's cord.
