Default Help: Ep630, Marshmallow or Gumy?

Hi,

today my cheap Philips earbuds died, so now I need a new, cheap pair.
The Ep 630 , the JVC HA FX55 and the JVC HA FX 33 look like a good deal.
Which one should I buy?
I mostly will use them to listen to hardcore punk, rap and hiphop on my Sansa e250 (in the bus, train ...).
Can you help me?

Thanks
Pascal from Germany again

They should all be more or less the same... all have an excessive amount of bass and lack clarity. Stick with the FX33, they're the cheapest of the bunch.

Love the original post....

JVC Marshmallow = FX33
JVC Gumy = F130
JVC No-Name = FX55

So the title lists different headphones than the body of the message.

The Gumy is the cheapest, the Marshmallow (FX33) is probably the best buy.

Mhmm, I don't really know but in the good inexpensive phones topic it says

" JVC HA-FX33 "Marshmallow" / JVC HA-FX55 "Gumy" - Good bass, decent mids and treble, good isolation. "

Well I matched the numbers off the JVC America web-site. There the FX55s don't have a name.
