JVC Gumy Plus ( Black)
At around $7, the surprisingly good-sounding and comfortable JVC Gumy Plus is a bargain.

Aerial7 Tank ( Hello Kitty)
The Aerial7 Tank Headphones will not satisfy audio purists or comfort hounds, but the young, DJ'ing target audience might be wooed by the durable and eye-catching design.
iLuv iEP515BLK Premium Earphones
The iLuv iEP515 earphones provide an inexpensive way to listen to and control music on your iPod, but fit and sound quality are not great.

The iBlink Earbuds may be gimmicky, but at least it's a fun gimmick that has a good chance of appealing to the younger set. Steer clear if you're picky about audio.
JBL Roxy Reference 230 ( Orange)
The Roxy Reference 230 earphones don't sound great and they may not fit everyone comfortably, but they offer a splash of style for an ultralow price.
Candy Comfort ( Sour Apple Blow Pop)
The Candy Comfort Earphones are a fun replacement for stock earbuds that offer a reasonable upgrade in fit and comfort, but don't expect good sound quality.
