Reliable earbuds for a Galaxy S9

I've been using a pair of Jaybird Vista 2 earbuds for the past year that I bought because of their IP68 rating and have been reasonably disappointed with the performance. The sound quality is decent, battery life is awesome, and I've been quite happy with the fit, but unfortunately it has almost daily Bluetooth connection issues, the charging contacts on the buds and the case are starting to wear, and I get a weird "puffing" sound in my left bud when I'm biking (i.e. when there's lots of wind on them).

I tried really hard to get over the issues, but it's become annoying to the point where I'm getting a new pair on warranty and am considering selling them to get something else. What's a reliable pair of earbuds for a Galaxy phone for someone who values battery life, fit, and ideally a high IPXX rating?
