 Skullcandy makes iems that have a lot of bass imo. V-moda remix also has plenty of bass from what I remember. JVC makes good products for the most part just avoid anything with that big red "b" and you'll be good. Hope this helps!

Marshmellows? Pfffft! The only way to get good bass is with a pair of $2,000 IEM's with dual super low and dual low armature drivers! 

 
In all honesty though, for the price they're worth checking out! I know I have a pair of the Sony Extra Bass buds (like, $15 online I think is what I paid) and they hit pretty hard!

Marshmallows? Why? JVC has so many other low priced IEMs. The Marshmallow tips wear out so quickly. For around $18 the JVC HA-FX40 is really great with plenty of detail and strong bass. It needs plenty of burn in though, so let if play continuously at a slightly loud volume for a few days before listening to it. If you want plenty of extra exaggerated bass(basshead bass) then get the $13 JVC HA-FX101. Check Amazon for these.

The JVC HAFX101 is much better than the HAFX1X. The HAFX101 isn't as large and doesn't stick out as much. The HAFX101 fits me much better, and has much better sound quality than the HAFX1X. The JVC HA-FX40 though has much more detail and much better sound overall than the others mentioned.

Why not just get the JVC fx40 like everyone is recommending?
 
For ex, Joker has reviewed 287 in ears and rates the marshmallow a 4.2/10 and the FX40 a 7.2/10. According to his review, the FX 40 does have a lot of highs though in addition to a good (but not extreme) amount of bass

"
JVC’s entry-level clarity-oriented model delivers exactly what it promises – a bright, clarity-oriented signature that doesn’t sacrifice the one must-have trait of a successful entry-level earphone – solid bass. The form factor leaves a little to be desired and the sound signature won’t work for everyone but the FX40 is one of the better treble-heavy earphones in the lower price tiers."
