The ma750i cord is as sturdy as you will get. It's a fairly thick rubber insulated cord, much thicker than my mie2i and apple cords. I'd say it will stand up to more abuse. And RHA is super reliable with warranty replacements within 3 years of purchase, which is quite generous.

From what I've heard, the ma600i cable is also quite durable.

RHA & Soundmagic earphones for iphone


i like the following 2

one is best of british \ scottish acoustic engineering supremo

And the other one is a fast growing and highly respected chinese firm, is the world wide award winning SoundMagic E10M Isolating Earphones with Apple Mic

Both of them are well respected company with a large fan club and happy customers but i would personally go for the e10 earphones
