I'm a big fan of the Etymotics, which were originally developed for diagnostic testing and auditory research. These are deep-seated earplugs with excellent isolation. Custom earmolds are available. http://www.etymotic.com/customfit/index.html Downside: the ER4s are fairly inefficient, and for most listening will require an amplifier. (However, the isolation level is high enough that they can be used for very quiet listening.) I've been using Etymotic HF5's for a few years now and have coveted the ER4s, but never felt okay with spending that extra $150.
