    these do look cool, but it says that they are only compatible with the new ipods that came out in Sept, Ipod Classic 120gb, 2G touch, 4G Nano

    and they arent going to be the best value or best sounding.

    I would recommend for pure sound quality Shure MPA and Shure IEMs.

    Do these work with the recessed head phone jack?

    Got a Shure SE530PTH here.

    If you don't mind forking out some serious cash, I'd definitely recommend them!

    The Shure MPA is the best converter for the recessed jack. If you look back in this part of the forum you can find a post I made showing how it doesn't add any length to the cable making it ideal for use. The microphone is the highest quality available as are most Shure products.
    Pretty sure the SE530s (let alone the PTH) are out of the OPs budget. However I absolutely love mine and there is no way I could go back to anythingelse.

    I have the Shure SE210's with the adapter and they're really fantastic. I had originally bought the SE110's but was not pleased with them at all. Luckily a few days later I found the 210's for the same price so I bought them and returned the first ones. I'm very pleased and they would be in your range. Not bass heavy but true sounding.

    V-Moda Vibe Duo meets all your criteria save the noise-canceling - however they are earbuds so they are noise-isolating. I don't know what they cost in the US, but they were £65 in the UK, which is about $120, so about the right price point too. Good quality, nice design, awesome sound.

    I'm enjoying my Ultimate Ears Super.fi 4vi earphones. The re-designed pause/play button is easy to use and the sound is as nice as I've heard. $119

    Yeah the 110s are not a good investment.
