What are some great headphones for city walking?

I'm looking for headphones I can use while walking around town. Ideally, they will allow some noise to filter in (i.e., if I'm about to be run over by a bus!) but still allow me to hear podcasts and audiobooks clearly. Also, it would be great if they were compatible with an iPhone (mic and controls). I have trouble with two styles: earbuds (they are very uncomfortable) and over the ear loops, because they interfere with my eyeglasses. So far, I've not found anything remotely useful because I'm so picky. Thanks for any thoughts!

Looking for headphones for listening stations

Headphone solution x 2. I'm looking for two pairs of headphones to mate with some listening stations at my record store. One is for a unit that's on the floor and accessible to everyone so should be corded so it can't be stolen (it connects to the unit inside the machine). The other we'd like a wire-free pair... however, the listening station has no wireless/bluetooth. Is there a dongle or something that can solve this? In addition, what headphones would you recommend in general, that give good sound, fit many size heads, and are reasonably priced? Obviously, earbuds are not appropriate. Thanks!
