If you fly a lot, and listen to your iPod a lot, you owe it to yourself to get a noise-cancelling headset.  It completely changes the experience of listening to music while flying.

I can vouch for the Sony MDR-NC40.  Very effective at cutting out ambient noise.  (Conversational noise, not quite so much, but for an airplane, that's not important.)  There's a handy button you can press that mutes the music and lets you hear what's happening "outside", for when the FA comes down the aisle and asks you what you want to drink.  And the headphones will still work in the passive mode if the battery goes dead.

LOVE my Bose headphones.  One of the best investments I ever made.  Comfortable, amazing sound quality and it's great for cutting out the noise around you.

Actually, I have both, the noise canceling ones and the in-ear head phones (both cost a fortune but a good investment).  I have to say that in-ear ones are MUCH more effective, but most people don't like the feeling of anything deep in their ear canals.

Yeah, I'm the same way.  I can't use ear buds because they give me headaches.
