Default IEMs to go with a Cowon I7

Hi all,

I just broke for the umpteenth time my earphones cord near the jack, it's starting to be annoying.

So, I'm looking for a new pair of IEMs to pair with my Cowon I7, what I need is:

- nice acoustic isolation since I use it mainly on the train/bus
- very good bass. I listen mostly to fusion / progressive, I'm a bassist and I love bass, so this is very important
- good quality overall

Now, I mainly have two options here, one is to go for something on the low end of the price and keep them until they are broken too or spend something more but I need to be certain that they are really sturdy (or have an easily repleceable jack, or something else that works).

Consider that I use them from two to three hours a day, and they are always in a pocket (either jacket or pants).

In the last years I had a nice pair of Audiotechnica earphones (I'm at work now and can't see the model, I will edit the post later) that lasted about a year and a half (I went through two copies of them, the duration is ok I guess), when they broke I used the ones included with the Cowon but lasted like three months (and of course they were not nearly comparable as quality, needless to say) :\

What do you suggest? Am I the only one with this problem?
