Stop noise bleeds before they start

I like to listen to my music loud, but out of respect to others I'd like to keep the noise bleed to a minimum. (Think: riding in the subway.) Are their headphones that are built specifically to reduce the amount of noise pollution given off? [more inside]

Appropriate headphones for an iPod Shuffle?

I recently purchased an iPod Shuffle, and while I've been happy with it so far, I'm sick of Apple's earbuds. Are there any respectable headphones that the Shuffle can power without a significant decrease in battery life? I've searched AskMe, and while this question has come up in regard to full-size iPods, I'm worried about the ability of the Shuffle's tiny battery to keep my headphones going for more than thirty minutes at a stretch. If it helps, I'm considering buying a pair of Koss Portapros (I've had great experiences with them before and the price and size are right). Any suggestions are welcome.

Deep in-the-ear earbuds that don't leak sound.

I'm looking for cheap, deep-in-the-ear earbuds for listening to audiobooks. The sound quality doesn't have to be great, because I won't use them to listen to music. I want cheap ones, because I inevitably break headphones, and I don't want to have to spend $100 every month. On the other hand, I'm willing to spend $20 a month if I have to. In-the-ear, because I don't want to keep my wife awake with "leaking" sound. [more inside]
