Amazon has the V-Moda Vibe Earbuds (Gunmetal Black) for $39.99 shipped, originally priced at $101.00. It’s “designed to mimic the warm, sweet sound of hi-fi stereo speakers costing thousands of dollars apiece, the curve remains amazingly straight with no bass roll-off.” Product page.

A sensitivity dip in the 500hz to 2kHz range accentuates the bass slightly and reproduces a warm soundstage. The gentle dropoff in the high ranges was carefully designed to avoid harsh or “clinical”-sounding highs, making the Vibes suitable as in-ear monitors.
