Go over to head-fi.org. The ultimate experts in headphones....and sorry to say...wouldn't recommend any of those above.
What kind of music do you listen to? And do you prefer open or closed headphones? earbuds? isolation? Full sized? and what is your price range? There are a lot of possibilities when it comes to getting the best sound out of your ipod, so some more information would be nice.
PEABODY, you rock, what a nice detailed post, one of the reason this is the best forum aroundoh yeah and assuming you want something portable since it is your ipod..
$50 ultimate ears super.fi 3
$100 westone um1 (extremely comfortable)
$200-300 shure se530 or ultimate ears triple.fi 10 (the two top tier kings)
$300-1100 custom in ear monitors (ultimate ears, livewires, westone, freq - and much more - custom fit to your ears and have different sound signatures and qualities)
$20 jvc marshmallows (these are alright for the cheap price)
$40 yuin pk3 from head-direct.com (entry level yuins - audiophile grade earbuds)
$80 yuin p2 (best budget audiophile grade earbud)
$129 yuin pk1
$130 yuin ok2 (probably best sound out there for the price in an earbud - believe me it goes higher)
$20 koss ksc75/portapro (cheap clip ons that sound like hundred dollar headphones)
$45 sennheiser px100 (great sound - highly reccomended)
$70 grado sr60 (great for rock..absolutely wow)

These are all audiophile grade headphones, and they offer really really nice sound...if you go over to head-fi, they can give you more advice.
Agreed. These ear the best earphones at this price range, simple.big fan of etymotic. either the er-4p for ~$150 or the little brother the er-6i for about $80. the er-4p though will be the best sounding earphones for that price. i know im not the only one who thinks so, and i can't recommend them enough
Now there's an ignorant statement if ever I read one. To say that in-ear earphones will detrimentally impact on one's hearing more so than standard headphones is ridiculous.I just would like to suggest that you don't get any of those in ear headphones because it could possibly ruin your hearing. And thats something you can't get back.
I have these, they are kinda big but the sound makes up for it. In my opinion though. I'm not an expert by any means, I just like the sound better then any other ones I've had. I paid... 40-60 for them.

Head-fi would also point out that Shure use terrible quality cables.if you were to go to head-fi they would as would i tell you stay away from any bose in ear headphone, for the price, they sound terrible, and stay away from v-moda, they look nice but the sound quality just isn't there either. If you want in ear, go with either shure or etymotics, hands down.
