Need heavy-duty in-ear headphones

    Hi all,

    I have tried a number of DX in-ear headphones now, and I have to say, unfortunately, none of them survived for longer than 2-3 months (in some cases more like 2-3 weeks). While I really don't think I mistreat them that bad, they always fail in the same place: The cable breaks right at the 3.5mm jack. All I do is clip the player to my jeans pocket, then thread the cable under my shirt up to my ears. And oh yeah, I do roll / coil / wind the cable up around the player when not in use - but that's just the only practical way for storage, when travelling and stuff. After broken pair # 6 or 7, I'm not pretty pissed about the quality of these cables / Jacks, but apparently I need someting with a big, fat, heavy, thick cable (not that flimsy micro stuff every manufacturer uses these days, perhaps following the guidelines of planned obsolescence)

    Can anybody recommend a pair of in-ear headphones, for my mp3 player (sansa clip zip original, just the best player hands down, especially when upgraded to RockBox), which has really thick, heavy-duty cable and jack? Really need to be in-ear though, I hate these huge, heavy micky mouse things...
