Best loud earphones for iPod?

sigh i just bought a EU ipod (i'm an American in the UK) and i was unaware of the volume limit until after i got the ipod and i'm stuck with low volume, no programs work for me to make the volume louder or remove the cap...(i think its because of new restrictions and such)

so i was just wondering what are some good loud earphones for my ipod for a fair price online? if anyone had the same problem as i, it would be great to hear suggestions from you guys!

You could use a small dock powered amplifier like the Fiio E1.

Canal phones, rather than buds, will help reduce ambient noise so you won't need the volume as high.

These could be worth considering if you are not after bass.

Boostaroo makes an inline amp that will get stupid loud. Use with caution!

You can also buy earphones that reduce ambient noise, so you can hear more from the earphones without damaging your ears.

I sure like my klipsch s4's nice sound and good isolation. And for a reasonably high quality in ear not too pricey.
