I've been using the Etymotic MC3 for some time (air travel, etc.) and it offers very good isolation.
Sound is very clean and precise. For my taste, very good. Looks like you can order from Etymotic website... some models $30 off through 15Jan2013: http://www.etymotic.com/hs2012/?utm_source=etymotic&utm_medium=flash_box&utm_term=ephs_HS_2012&utm_content=ephs_HS_2012&utm_campaign=ephs_HS_2012
In terms of build quality, i've found these to be good. Further, I always carry mine in an ample wallet-sized case so they are protected during travel. Mine still look new. So I didn't find that an extra warranty was needed....
They are supplied with multiple tips. For me, the smaller three-flange silicon tip gave the best sound. They come with a small case... but I find it too small.
