Default Most durable pair of earbuds?

I've just had my amazing pair of JBL T110's die on me. I'm fed up. It seems as though no pair of earbuds would last for more than a couple of months.

Anybody have any idea of a durable pair of headphones? Their quality is secondary.

UPDATE: managed to find some Shure SE215 brand new for 100usd shipped, thanks everyone

CNC aluminum case with replaceable cables. Not expensive and sound very good. Dual balanced armature and dual dynamic driver 4 ways. Some people might find treble too much but older ears may welcome it. There is a mod available to tame treble (electrical mod to internal resistor or stick a piece of open cell foam in aperture.)

KZ ZS6

About $25. Get the upgraded braided silver cable for $10 more as stock one is too sticky and tangles and snags on clothing. Get the clone Comply foam tips too.

They are knock offs of $1000 Andromeda’s - I have never heard the real thing but these are quite nice and I don’t fear losing them etc. The bass digs very deep (HT style) and vocals and highs are all there. 114dB/mW rating I think, so very sensitive.
