Cable strength is not really proportional to price range. Once you get past dollar store earphones all cables are pretty close in build quality. It's really a matter of learning how to take care of...

You say you don't want IEMs but they're really the only way to get good sound quality on public transit. You need at least some passive noise isolation, or it won't matter if you spend 20 bucks or...

You want an earphone with a sports clip or you just want an earphone which isn't an IEM?

Any music you are very familiar with should be appropriate, I think. So much the better if you've heard it live, so much the better if it already has "depth," like orchestral music.

Any of the big names like AKG and Senn make nice earphones. I think Sennheiser makes some of the most durable earphones.

Ah, I guess I misunderstood you then. That makes sense. If your hearing isn't strong at certain frequencies, it's reasonable to boost those frequencies. That definitely takes some effort and maybe a...
