Help Newbie advice?

Continued dilemma from . . .

Since the above thread was sadly ignored, possibly as a result of being accidentally posted in the incorrect forum, I began delving into my options and narrowed them down to a list as thus:
I was quite taken by the seemingly much praised V-Moda, but sadly it does not seem to be available in my local area -- and internet purchase is not an option. I've checked out big name retailers, namely Best Buy and Future Shop, and they don't seem to have a very wide selection available. Sony Store is another option I suppose, but I just didn't get a very good first impression of their headphones (see original thread).

Hence, my choice came down to whatever is available at Tiger Direct. I am very much interested in noise isolation, but the effectiveness of the isolation is not a top priority. I think I would like it if it was enough to 'simmer down,' if you will, the big noise factors such as traffic or crowds, but not so great to the extent of being dangerous (as in, being unable to hear claxon for example).

Mainly, the two main things I require are those mentioned in the original thread: earbuds that are comfortable and are not prone to falling off during vigorous physical movements, and sound quality equivalent to or greater than that of iPod earphones. The major music genres I favour are classical and soundtracks, if that helps. As well, I'd really rather not spend upwards of $150 (CDN) on this purchase.

If you could recommend one from the above list or any alternatives available at Tiger Direct, your help would be greatly appreciated!
