There aren't many sub-$10 IEMs in the market. With all the recent budget IEMs being priced at around $50, it leaves very little choice for people who are looking for a very cheap IEM. As far as I...

HD598 meets all your requirements. I have yet to hear any headphone that has as good of a midrange as the HD598.
