Edifier Hi-Fi Stereo Headphone (H180 Black)

The best earbud you can get for under $20 IMHO. Sound very similar to some Grado over ear headphones.

sharonbava

Pros: The best bass on an earbud I have heard till date. Excellent natural mids and sparkly highs.

Cons: None

Dont let these tiny guys disappoint you by looks. Plug them in and you wont believe your ears. These are that good, It sounds like large over ear headphones. I have owned many earbuds like Sennheiser MX-170, MX-270, MX-580, Tingo TG-38s and for IEMS I have owned TTPOD T1e, JVC HA-FXT90, Sony XB90ex and Yamaha EPH-100 and believe me these tiny earbuds blow all of them out of the water.

Pros: One of the best bass and transient response in earbud, headphone-like sound

Cons: uninspiring design, needs amp

Kings of ultra-budget sound, stupidly cheap, outstandingly decent, but in need of revision.

Sennheiser MX 170 Earbud Headphone

Pros: Relatively detailed sound, good highs, very decent lows and mids, apparently indestructible.

Cons: Cheap feeling at points, a little too large for small ears, sharp highs at loud volumes, velvet covers easy to lose.

Baldoor EarBell E100

“Just like the Koss KSC75 and the Fiio X1, the E100 Earbell from Baldoor (and Mrice) represents a phenomenal value. This little $14 wonder has done two things for me: 1. It has renewed my faith in earbuds and 2. Has proven yet again, that top tier sound can be had for bottom tier prices - you just have to be willing to look! If you're interested in a new super-cheap piece of kit for your commute...” --JoeDoe

Sony MDR-E818LP Fontopia Ear-Bud Headphones with Acoustic Twin Turbo Circuit

Sony MDR-E818LP Fontopia Ear-Bud Headphones with Acoustic Twin Turbo Circuit

“ These are quite common in retail stores in my city (Toronto) and cost around $15-$20 CAD. I've been using them for years, because they are inexpensive, sound decent and are portable. They don't sound too distorted at high levels. I never had mines break, never had audio jack or audio cut out problems, but then again it really depends on the user, because I am very careful with my...” --Carbine

HiSoundAudio Paa1 Pro

“I'll be short : I was very disappointed when I listened to the PAA1-Pro the first time. I found bloated bass, harsh highs and a typical mainstream V-shaped sound signature. So, I began a hundred hour burn-in and retry it... Nothing changed a lot. Maybe the highs became less harsh but still not what I would call pleasant to my ears. I put them away a time and come back to them after two weeks....” --tinara

“ *edit as of 15th feb 2015* : after so many hours passed with BE3, I decided to grab some weeks ago a pair of Edifier H180, and I found it even better than the Blox one. BE3 has more a V sound signature especially with more highs but less bass. H180 is the contrary, even thought it has also a V sounding signature, it brights in bass domain but highs sounds more true because has much more...” --subwoof3r

“ Got these at Amazon after a long search and much reading. Sound for the price is really good. Not in the same league with my Sony Pros or the Sennheisers but surprisingly close. I have them connected with a REALLY cheap headphone amp and the combo far exceeds what I expected. Clear, roomy, dead quiet.  ” --Richard S
