Default Which Sony earbuds to buy?

First a little story that got me to ask you for advice.

I've been a Sony mp3/mp4 user for about five or six years, and everytime after a year or two, the default earbuds supplied with each player(similar to Sony MDR-E 818 LP, same look but black, golden connector...), would be damaged with regular use in the way that i'd loose audio in right/or left earbud. The source of it seems to be in the cable, specificly the circled part on the pic:

Over the months and months of use, seemed like the bending of the cable would afect the wire. I'd get crackled audio in the broken earbud, sometimes clear audio if I'd bend the cable there at specific angle, but that earbud have failed me anyway, leaving me with the other in working ok?!?
Then when the original earbuds would fail, i'd get 818 LP cheap, but they too eventualy fail. Like now, two months or more ago.

Why is this happening with every piece of earbuds? Does it happen to you?
They are designed to be bought over and over, to fail, not to pass the test of time, quality sucks.

Since the last earbuds broke in same manner, i didn't buy new ones (like 818LP cause they were out of stock).
I am now wondering to invest a bit more money in new earbuds, i dunno if they'll fail me the same sometime, but the choice is between the two:

Love&Peace&Donuts! If Vash approves, so should you.
