I need help choosing some portable earphones. I'm not very savvy on these matters and i have a tight budget (below $30).
after spending a couple of days searching the web for the best value i can afford i've reached a list of , what seems to be , very interesting phones. but i can´t make my mind about them:
 
monoprice 8320($7), audio-technica fw-33 bijoue(around $9 with a deal), koss ksc75($15),  coby cv-185($10), MEElectronics ht-21($25), koss sportapro($23), koss portapro($35), sennheiser px100(if i can find them at $35), philips SHE3580($8), jvc flats ($12), kanen m-95($6), or the jvc riptidz(i don't know if the in-ear or the over the ear are the good ones)
 
i've also seen the coby cv-135 very cheap but i can't find anything about them

for what i read buying the monoprice 8320 is pretty much a given since they are so cheap, it would be nice to have them as a spare.
but i'd like to buy another one to use on daily basis.
the koss porta pro and the sennheiser px100(if i can find them a 35) are a little out of my budget, but if the build cuality and sound are far better than the other options i might stretch to get them.
sadly, i can't test the phones since i'm in argentina and a friend visiting USA will be buying them. So i'd like to hear your opinion or experiences on this phones.
 
thanks

finding the right tips for 8320 is pain in the @ss. But if ur willing to pay for comply T400 foam, thats fine.(another $15)
 
i will say go for philips SHE3580,
 
OR sony MH1C if u can still find them under or around $30. good luck

those are a little out of my budget. i'm thinking maybe i should buy a IEM, a full headophone like the flats or the coby and something like the koss ksc75 to have something to pick from each type. but i'm but sure if thats better than puting more money and buying only the portapros, is the difference in sound quality that much?, i'm also afraid that the cord on the portapros won't last..
 
does anyone know something about the audio-technica fw-33 bijoue?

i really don't want to strech as far as $30 if posible, only if there's something that's really worth it.

Brainwavz M1 - 32$ on sale
vsonic gr02 - 30$
soundmagic (cant remember the model name but its below 30$)
