Klipsch X10 if you like warm SQ.
Etymotic ER4PT if you like neutral
Audeo PFE 232 if you like one of the best.
Yuin PK1 if you like good buds
Blox Aniversary III if you like outstanding buds (and can find a pair)
Modified Koss PortaPro if you like really inexpensive but great sound in a light headphone.
All owned by me and used extensively with my Tera-Player.

The "earpods" are new and came out just last year. they're not sold with the ipod classic but with the iPhone, ipod nano and ipod touch.
They're much better than the old apple earbuds and a solid buy for $30 or so. More natural sounding, better bass, less thin and less distorted. But they're not refined or detailed like good IEMs in the $70 to $100 range. But they are a respectable pack in for new Apple devices.
oh yeah, the earpod is NOT an IEM. it is an earbud and was designed not to isolate.
As an aside, Apple happens to sell a decent dual driver IEM for around $80. it's OK. a bit thin but detailed, clear sound. but for that price, there are better alternatives out there these days.
