I think you can get noise reduction ear buds, but anything that doesn't actually cover the entire ear seems unlikely to completely cancel 100% outside noise.
I wear a pair of these when I'm running my yard equipment over top of these Panasonic ear buds.
I can hear the mower / blower as a muffled hum and the music sounds great. I've worn expensive aviation head sets (david clark / bose etc) that also claim to be noise cancelling but the drone of the propeller is still quite apparent.
I'm definitely no expert on head phones / ear buds but I would guess some outside ambient noise will always be present no matter how much money you spend.
I hope you enjoy the Pannies. It's hard to complain at under $6 a pair tho! One thing I forgot to mention is they're virtually no "cord noise". I have a pair of audio techinicas ath-30 something or other that I use with my lap top. They sound great if you remain perfectly still. Slight movements amplify the cord in the cans and drives me bonkers. It's really distracting.

I bought these based on someone here's recommendation. I use them primarily when cutting the grass and running different lawn equipment. They truly are fantastic for the money. I bought these to replace a pair of Jlabs that got washed with a pair of pants.
Even before burn-in they sound full and crisp. The bass hits nicely without sounding farty. I've noticed slight nuances in songs I've been listening to for decades. Good build quality also. I have used them at least once a week for 2+ hours with no problems at all.
I do however use a pair of PELTOR style ear muffs over top, but even without the muffs the sound is incredible. They've held up well and I expect them to keep on trucking for a while still. At $5.87, I think I'll pick up a few more pairs just to stock and be at the ready.

|smata67||The budget giant killer earphone nowadays is the Philips SHE3580 which is discontinued, but can be had at TJMaxx for $6.99. The replacement for these is the SH3590, any SHE35XX is reported to have the same drivers and similar sound. High end sound for peanuts, according to the IEM nerds at head-fi.|

They come with multiple ear buds so you can swap to a larger size.
I've heard that alot of head-fi'ers really like this particular earphone -

They are smaller which is nice because I am extremely tired of getting either poor quality headphones that break easily or decent quality that hurt my ears. They dont fall out of my ears but maybe mine are smaller than other males'.

|gghochu||I will take brands from Audio Technica and Sennheiser over craptastic Dre Beats any day in terms of quality and value. I was suckered into getting Dre tours and pros and regret doing so since I don't even use them. Good deal.|
