best types of earphones/earbuds?

i have a first gen. ipod mini. i know, very outdated. the flimsy earbuds that came with it broke quite a while ago, and i've had to make do with other earphones. i want to know what's the best kind of earphones that block out noise, yet don't attribute to hearing loss? i wan to invest my money into a good product, but don't want to spend too much. are earbuds better, or headphones? i want something compact is easy to carry, but mostly i want to find something good, reliable. and comfortable.

    Comply NR1 Earphones are In-The-Ear style, made of the same foam that we Audiologists use to demonstrate hearing aids and to test hearing.

    I haven't listened to them, but I know they will be comfortable and secure in the ear and good at reducing ambient noise for better sound quality at safer volume levels. The next best thing to custom molded earphones for a fraction of the price!
