My favorite is the $13 Soundmagic ES18. I have many earphones that were under $50 each, however this is my favorite. It sounds very natural, and has good bass that sounds natural and is not exaggerated. It has nice detail. Some of the others I have either are lacking in midrange detail, or don't have enough bass.
When I am active and need to hear my surroundings, I use the JVC HA-EB75 earphones with ear hooks. This has good midrange and treble for the price, but is bass deficient. When I boost the bass on my player by 8 db though, these are good enough for casual listening while I am active. This is under $10
Both of these also come in a version with a mic and phone control for around $3 or $4 extra.

Priced on the higher side of our review units, the iClever BTH20 headphones were my favorite. They paired effortlessly to my iPhone and kept a solid Bluetooth connection when I was listening to music and receiving phone calls. I enjoyed deep, clean bass; subtle midrange; and crisp highs, which allowed me to enjoy acoustic versions of my favorite artists. The iClever earbuds felt secure and at home inside my ears, whether I was using them at the gym or playing outdoor sports. I squeezed roughly 8 hours from a single charge. It was simple to control the volume, skip tracks, make calls and pause my streaming service using the multifunction button. A couple of design flaws: no built-in magnets on the earbuds and too-thin audio cables kept the iClevers from achieving a higher score.
