The thing is, if I buy cheap $30 ear buds to snowboard with, they eventually break. Then I spend another $30, then another $30 etc.. So instead, I buy durable quality ear buds, like the EPH-100's I mentioned, which last me years from the same abuse.
I have other ear buds that I wouldn't dare take on a mountain, like my davis tributes, my etymotics etc.. actually, etymotics make some what durable equipment, but I wouldn't risk it with those. However there are plenty of quality ear buds, that are quality in both sound AND build, that have actually saved me money versus bringing out pieces with an inferior build.
