I started reading the your favorite IEM thread and was disappointed that most remarks were for IEMs over $100.
Let's start with the under $50 category. Perhaps later we could have an under $100 thread.
So far my favorite IEM under $50 is the $25 Panasonic RP-HJE450. It has strong natural sounding bass and nice detail, however it doesn't isolate so well.It has an ergonomic shape with oval nozzles, fits me very well, and is very comfortable. I also enjoy the $8 JVC Riptidz very much. it is also ergonomically shaped and very comfortable. The Riptidz has decent detail but not as much deep bass as the HJE450.
