Default need new earbuds

okay guys..new ones are dying and they suck anyway (stock zune earbuds).

dunno what to ask for so i'll list some specifics:

i wanna stay in the $10-20 price range.
good bass
basic earbuds or the ones that go in canal---no wrap around ear ones


thanks in advance :] ohhh yea, i was looking at some iFrogz (i found them locally so they looked okay) but i heard they don't have good bass...which i want.

you can't really expect good bass from an earbud... especially in the $10-20 range

What !?! You MUST try my earbuds.. you'll be very surprised. I'm talking undistorted inside-of-the-head vibrations baby ! Really though, they produce very good bass. You may not feel your body rumble (ofcourse), but you can get your head to a bit and it sounds surprisingly powerfull.

@wafflehammer

If you want bass thats 'there' your going to have to spend atleast $40 on some 'phones.

I stand corrected... except for the part about $10-20 sounding good.

I might consider gettting a pair of one of those sometime.

Why don't you save a bit for a decent pair that will last?
