Default Best Ear buds (Earphones) with noise cancellation or issolation

So im on a pretty tight budget and was wandering what was the best Ear buds that can cancel out sound pretty good and can take some abuse. I used to have regular good (cheap) plug ins, but a neighbor recently got a dog that wouldn't ever shut up at night, so i want to block that out and listen to audio books, what would be the best for about 5 dollars?
Thanks!

Nothing I can think of in the $5.00 range but the JVC Marshmallows can be found from $8.00 to $20.00. Add decent after market tips and a Kramer mod should do the trick nicely.

Pretty tight budget 5 dollars is like burger, drink and fries.

Can you extend your budget?

Marshmallows are just about as cheap as you can get in the IEM world...

Thread cleaned of all the off topic crap, there's no need for stepping all over Sigbjorn's thread that came here seeking help. Back on topic please ...

Just thought I would add my two cents for anyone who is after a set of NC's for a bit more money! I have been looking for ages for a "decent" set of NC's and after being pretty unimpressed with the Pioneer SE-NC31C I have just taken delivery of the latest Sennheiser CXC700's from my local haunt and they are pretty great. They sound excellent for the money with clear vocals and very accurate bass, obviously also included active NC which really benefits on the train journey to work.

Regards
