Creative EP-830 offers great performance at an affordable price and for that it gets my recommendation.
I love extra bass on my music - don't ask, it's an obsession. These ear buds are perfect. They mean I can have extra bass without everyone around me hearing my music. I can however, still hear stuff around me so i'm not going to walk into an on-coming car. I don't mind spending extra money on decent ear buds, because I know they're going to last.
