Circumaurals Or Iems?

Gotta get new headphones. I've always used IEMs but they've never lasted more than a few months, so I'm considering getting full sized circumaurals next. Looking into Superlux HD668Bs, Sony MDR-V6s and Audio-Technica ATH M50s. Anyway, for those who've used them what are the pros and cons and how do they compare to IEMs?

Looking for high sound quality spread out across all ranges and durability. Isolation
and portability is a plus too, although obviously portability is hard with big

I've been told IEMs have "accurate quality" as opposed to a big live sound and
atmosphere. Always preferred that insular sound. Also heard that the sound quality
of circumaurals is better than that of IEMs of the same price, although that opinion
doesn't seem as clear cut.
