Default Concerns regarding durability and practicality of wearing IEMs over ears

Lately, I've been checking out quite a few IEMs, mostly under $100.

Firstly, I have some doubts regarding wearing IEMs over-the-ear. I want quick insertion/removal, but it feels impractical wearing them like that, especially if you have trouble with fit/seal.

In general, I just want them to be practical. Easy to stuff away, no fiddling with cable, easy to get a decent fit/seal. Comfort is included here.

My second concern regards durability. My last three IEMs have broken in a matter of months. I've used them in school, so nothing special. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong. So, how do I take extra care of my IEMs?

Would wearing over-the-ear be suited for use in school, where I need to insert/remove them quickly?
How do I take care of my IEMs? Sounds dumb, but obviosuly, advice is needed.
Tips on especially "practical" and durable IEMs are welcome. Pref <$100.

I already have about 10 in mind, but I don't know much about their durability and I constantly hear conflicting reports. Also, manufacturers upgrade them from time to time, so posts barely a year old can be obsolete.
