Need earbuds with specific qualities, got advice?

Hello

I'm looking for advice on my new earbud purchase and was told this is a good place to ask.

Sweatproof (considering to use under light rain)
Wired
Has a mic (would it be mildly resistant to water with a mic anyway?)
At least mediocre sound quality (Will be using 85% music 15% calls)
Considering 40-80$ range(flexible)

I had a few cheap ones that lost sound on one side, another few from aliexpress with terrible audio quality (also their mic broke in a week).

I work in the field and sometimes use earbuds under very light rain, I'm guessing that's why I lost some of these pieces. Also being outdoors for 10 hours straight I can't charge a bluetooth piece (already using a powerbank for 2 other devices)

This is not the best place to ask. Pro audio is all about the gigantic headsets.

My advice: Go to a store or website that specializes in sportsgear or gear for mountainneering. Both fields where people can't use their hands all the time, and where control needs to be within easy reach.



Goodluck
