u can try the shure e2s or the etymotic er6s, but theyll ring u up at about 100. in-ear canalphones that isolate very well.

they felt wierd for about 5 minutes and after that i got completely used to them, if you've ever worn ear plugs or anything, they feel exactly like that. The E2's definitely do not need an amp to be driven by a portable, although as always sound will improve with an amp.

i bought mine from Guitar center for 70, only prob is they don't have any sort of return policy, which a lot of online places do.

iDealSound is one of Head-Fi sponsors if you are affraid to deal with eBay. And it seems like everyone that bought from there are 100% satisfied.

They also have money-back warranty if you find that E2 is not for you.
