I am debating whether i should buy Led Zeppelin 4 on CD or the mp3 version both from Amazon. I listen to my music on an Audio Technica ATH-M30(with an ipod) and im wondering if it would sound better on the headphones with the mp3 version or the cd version that i will rip into an Apple Lossless file? The CD is a 1994 remaster.

I always opt for the CD.. Rip it to lossless, then you're free to make as many 1st generation lossy encodes to whatever lossy codec of the moment happens to be.. If you get the mp3's then you're always stuck with that mp3, with encoding options not chosen by you and any future format conversions will suffer multigeneration loss.
