First off - http://www.head-fi.org/t/596233/buying-portable-or-in-ear-headphones-seeking-guidance-dont-start-a-new-thread-ask-for-advice-here

Anyways, <$75, accurate (although a few more details in terms of signature, or even build, isolation, comfort, etc, would also be helpful) - could check out the E30 or the GR04 for starters. Also the VC02 to consider although have not heard that personally (ljokerl has a very nice review on the Multi-IEM thread linked).
 
If you can stretch that budget a tad bit, it'd also open you up to more choices with the (assuming) sort of sig you're looking for - i.e. the PFE012, RE-400, HF5, R-50, A161P, etc, etc.

I would have to agree - if $75 was a limit - the XBA-3IP is a great deal - you'd be getting a lot more quality for your dollar - 3BA for under a C-note? Nice...

I have the xba3 from BB and I am very happy with them. At $75 you can't go wrong.

But you can contact Head-Direct they still have RE-0 for $49+shipping if you're in the US.
