I bought the Klipsch Image S4 earphones
They are about $80 and are the best sounding earphones I have tried. They will easily compare with earphones 2 to 3 times more expensive. These are sound isolating and not active noise cancelling.
The main difference between the two is that the sound iso block the sound waves to the ear (like ear plugs do) and the active noise cancel send an inverse wave to 'cancel' the sound. This will still put the pressure on your ears.
I got a pair of Motorola EH20 last weekend for $20 at Frys. Block out a fair amount of external noise and have an in-line mic which is one feature I really needed in a pair of headphones.
Denon is what will be in and over my ears for years to come. Amazing sound and design. I believe they make a pair thats under $50 but im not sure.
