Ok so I know there are many many threads on in ear headphones under $20 but my mission is to find some decent ones that are durable and lasts me more than a year when I run in rain or shine with sweat. The problem with me last few headphones were as follows....

Apple OEM: died after half a year... not durable $30
Apple Iphone OEM: current ones, just like the Apple OEMs, will die...
Senns: had the vol thing in the middle great but died after a year... wiring.. Not durable $25...
Creatives: in ear and one of the best rated ones sound wise, but the wire was the thinest out of all of these and ripped of course...$15ish now?

I want durability, comfort for electronica.

So what do you recommend for a frugal rugged runner like me? Sorry for killing so many headphones....

I run a lot... mostly outdoors as in around the track, in the street side.

I usually use my iBuds/Sony earbuds -> friend's shuffle if I ever run with one. I'm planning to get the JVC mellows. Get something that works...
