V-Moda makes a pair.  They’re called “bass freqs” and they sell for $50, but they sold for $40 when they were first released.  Best earbuds around IMHO.  I run and lift with these earbuds.

I think NJO is talking about Creative’s, Senn’s and Sharps.

so are they all the same buds or are they just the same case?

The Senns and the Creative buds are definitely NOT the same, except in general appearance. The gap between the two sonically is,  IMO, more than worth the actual price difference. I’d recommend the CX300 over the the EP-630 any day, and I don’t even draw a paycheck from Sennheiser, or own any of their stock.

There’s also another look-alike, sold by by some outfit called Fuji Labs that’s even cheaper than the Creative set (they’re around $20 on newegg), but you most certainly DO get what you pay for. Barely tolerable SQ. A waste of an Andy Jackson, unless you’re into in-ear buds that you don’t mind abusing.
