Cables on my £20 M11+ have so far outlasted my CK7s (1 set) and CKS50 (1 set) which both lost sound in the left ear and both cost more than £20.

 

Given these to my sister now and I have bought the JVC HAFX1X for £18 which has a pretty good quality cable in my opinion and better sound than the CKS50s out of the box with even more competent bass.  Oh, and they haven't opened up yet - I hear they pretty much outshine a lot in the £40-60 range on a much more manageable budget.

 

I guess the null set isn't easy to define though; high(er) quality for cheap(er) prices than the traditionally regarded HIGH QUALITY items based on being less CHEAP, means this is what the OP is looking for. And it's not impossible to find stuff close.

I had the same sort of thing and ended up trying a few different earbuds. I like the encore TT-1 bulk ear buds, as the have pretty decent sound for a cheap ear bud. And if my kids get ahold of them, it's not the end of the world.
