Just don't use stock tips. Order an ultimate ears universal fit kit, and you'll be able to actually block quite a bit of noise out without sacrificing comfort. I used the bi-flanges on my EP630s for a while, until I started to get sick of the sibilance and lack of sound stage.

You might want to see into some Yuin pk3s even if it's a bit more money. As of now along with the older brothers pk2 and 1 (that cost a lot more) they are the best earbuds on the market; and this isn't a preference issue as much as it is hard testimonials. pk1 is said to be closed to a full set of cans. pk3 sounds like a ksc75 in earbud form.

If you look around you might be able to find a pair of v-moda vibes in your price range, but that requires a bit of patience.

Otherwise you can just get a pair of cheap ksc75s. Not earbuds, but sound incredible after a little bit of modification.
