Default Looking for good, sturdy IEMs under $80 USD

Hi all! I'm a Canadian looking for IEMs under $80 USD. I like a wide range of music so I'm looking for a well-rounded set to use indoors and outdoors, and I'm hoping to find a pair tough enough to last more than eight months. I'm a big fan of System of a Down, Coldplay, progressive rock/metal, Daft Punk and Hardstyle.

I've had a few budget pairs before: the Meelectronics M6, whose cable noise drove me around the bend every time I took a step while walking; the Hippo Boom and Hippo Shroom, which I didn't like much but which each broke within a couple months of having them back in 2010 so I can't remember my specific complaints; the JVC HAFX66, which I was fairly pleased with; and the Meelectronics A151, which I had a terrible time getting to fit, and which I found far too harsh on tracks with "wet" distorted guitars like a lot of the stuff by System of a Down. I like the sound from my Sony MDR-ZX100s except that they're not real "articulate" when it comes to some tracks.

I'm willing to cough up a bit more coin, now, so I'm hoping you guys can help me out!

P.S. I hope I haven't given you information overload!
