The JVC Gumy Plus comes in multiple colors and is another nice value at $7.

Cosmetically, the JVC Flats may look like $15 headphones, but they sound more expensive.

If you want something a little better than Panasonic's ErgoFit RP-HJE120, have a look at the RP-HJE355.

The Smile Jamaica may not be the greatest name for a headphone, but it's a solid value.

I'm not a fan of really bass-heavy headphones, but if you are, the City Lights has lots of low-end for the cost of a fancy Starbucks coffee.

I don't particularly love the white version of this headphone, but it does come in other colors and sounds good for the money.

The RP-HT21 is about as dull and basic as you get, but it's really cheap and sounds good for its ultralow price.

MEElectronics' M9 in-ear headphone has been around for a while and remains a decent value.

The M6 comes in a few different colors and a few different versions. I'm not a total fan of the fit but some people love it for the price.

The funny thing about headphones is that sometimes you can get one color for a lot less money than another. That's the case for the white version of the Philips CitiScape Metro, which sells for around $20 online -- at least at the time of this writing.
