Default Good In-Ear Headset for 20 dollars?

Hello People on this forum.

My old headphone is slowly dying out and was wondering if anyone know a good in-ear headset for 20 dollars? Right now, I am looking at this


PSP Go In-Ear Headset. I saw quite a few of those from a store that selling them for 20 dollars a pop. From review I manage to gather one, people say the sound these plugs deliver is surprising. When called for, the headset pumped out meaty bass and was able to hit the high notes with no discernible distortion. But before I buy it, I was wondering if anyone use this in ear headset before and also if anyone know a good one for 20 dollars price range.

Besides, psp headphones generally sound a certain way - crappy. Unless you spend quite a bit more than $20.

The JVC Riptidz is on your list, why don't you read the thread I linked you on them above, there's peeps opinions there. I can't say one way or the other, I don't use cheap IEMs, the last ones I tested were the MEE stuff (m16 & m31, I wouldn't consider a151 or a161p cheap), crossroads and the cx300s which are still above your budget.

Edit: BTW if you like bass the m31s are real nice and I've seen them for $25.00, great build quality and very nice sound sig.

I did read the JVC one and that will be one I will be looking at when I get to the store. Also, do anyone know any good audio store in Canada that sell headphone or earbuds?
