Thoughts on a couple wheelsets?

I'm in the market for a new wheelset for my daily delivery/weekend touring bike. I ride all year around in the city in any weather, and I'm looking for something that offers a little more performance than the stock wheelset.

I can get this for $225: https://www.ebay.com/itm/252859206931

Or this or this for $270 (I'm aware they are not the same freehub): https://www.velomine.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=4433

The main difference seems to be the hubs. The XT M756 hubs seem to be cup and cone style, which bothers me a bit because I worry that when I ride in rain or deep snow water will get in and require frequent overhauls. The origin8 hubs use cartridge bearings and I believe have higher engagement, but they are $50 more and I can't find any feedback on them. Is it worth it to spend the extra money in this case?
