What are good noise reducing earphones for use with a PC? [closed]

I need a pair of noise reducing earphones (you know, the small ones, that you put inside your ear) what will work with my PC and that I can carry around with me to work and back.

"I use Audio-Technica (these). We went through a major expansion last year with brick chiseling, hammering, drilling and who knows what else, and never had a problem. Just as good (if not better) than their Bose counterparts, and a lot less in price.

I have also used these earbuds , not so much at work, but are very nice mowing the lawn as they also double as ear plugs.

I should note, both I can listen to at my normal volumes and feel like I am in a quiet room."

They're headphones, not earbuds, but I had a pair of Sennheiser PXC-250 noise-cancelling headphones. The sound quality was excellent, and the noise cancelling was quite good. Just enough to drown out most background noise, without making me totally deaf to the world.

"look for some silicone earbuds or silicone addons for the earbuds you already have. they enhance the sound quality and greatly reduce background noise.

i'm using AcoustiBuds myself."

I've heard nothing but great things about Etymotic. The Etymotic hf5 are going to be the next pair of canalphones I get, if I don't get their iPhone headset.

"I also have Sennheiser PXC-250s that I like a lot, but I don't think that noise reducing headphones do what you think they do. They're best at canceling noise that's a strong, steady noise -- such as the engine noise on an airplane or a lawn mower.

The key is what you have in your headphones. I've used the sounds on iserenity.com more than a few times."
