  • I highly recommend the ER6 (or 6i) earbuds from Etymotic Research [etymotic.com]. They sound fantastic, and as a bonus they do a great job of blocking out outside sounds. They actually work well as earplugs too, even without listening to music.

Infact, I usually sit at the very back of the bus, virtually up-on the engine, and am not even remotely bothered by it.

    The noise-cancelling version is somewhere around $300, but in my mind are most app
  • About 5 years ago, I picked up a pair of Grado Headphones from a high end stereo shop around the corner from my apartment. They are literally the best headphones I have ever used.

    For daily use, I use the Shure e2c with the foam sleeves. They're OK, and they do a decent job of cutting out outside noise (but not completely). The Grado setup is big, bulky, over the ear, with an open back. The sound is amazing, and you can still hear what's going on around you (i.e., when you want to listen to music, don't
