What are some of the best earphones you have tried out there? I made a list below of the ones I found that I think are fairly good and have what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for something that will really reduce exterior noise. The places I usually use my iphone/ipod are noisey (the gym, etc). I know some of these sound more like monitors then stereo headphones and will show the imperfections in tracks and such, but I like my music really accurate, I listen to everything at home on M-Audio LX4's which are hybird monitors and have grown used to the flatter tone and more accurate detail.

Anyway, I need them to be comfortable, noise reductive, and good sounding. I don't care about the price. I'm not looking for a bargain. They can be $200 or $600, as long as they are good.

Right now I'm leaning towards the Klipsch, they seem to have good reviews on Amazon. But the ER's are also very highly regarded. The ultimate ears as well.

I got the Shure SE530. I've had them for about a month and they're great!
