Default Sturdiest mic-equipped earphones?


I usually have two pairs of earphones:
1. The higher quality ones I use for listening to music.
2. The cheaper, mic-equipped ones I use for business calls on my Blackberry.

I've never wanted to splurge on the second type because I'm not interested in perfect sound for calls....all I care is that they can hear me well, which is not a tall order at all. However, I've spent oodles of money replacing cheapo ones because I go through them very quickly. The wires get frayed and/or they stop working, so I realized I do need something that isn't uber-expensive but very sturdy.

I would be grateful if you have any suggestions on strongly built, sturdy, mic integrated, in-ear headphones. The ones with the super-thin cables get destroyed in a relatively short period.

The other issue is that many brands seem to be geared for iPhone only, which means they will not work with the Blackberry (a sales guy at a store says they come with a chip that shuts out other brands?).

Any suggestions will be much appreciated...thanks guys.
