Good to see the PX100II has come down in price...for a long time it was about $25 more than a PortaPro. Both the Portapro and the original PX100 were cursed with flimsy cables that give out within a year of frequent portable use for me.
I'm extraordinarily cautious with my current PX90's in an effort to avoid that once again.

If you really want durable, though, the Philips O'Neill "The Stretch" are all that. You can twist them into shapes that would break any other headphone, and the cable is designed to pop off if strained. They're not the best sounding, though...need some EQ correction, at least for dedicated listening. For use while active, however, it might not be such a big deal.
