    In my experience headphones seldom last. Buy <&pound;1 sets from CPC.

    Hills Components have some great "indestructible" headsets that if you buy in bulk (30-50) you can get for about £2.50-£3.00 per unit.

    I'd really recommend them. They don't have prices listed on the website; you need to contact them and negotiate a price yourself.

    Try eBay, Hong Kong suppliers - you can get headphones with mic for around £1.30 a set. I treat them as consumables. Kids will wreck your headphones however much or little you pay for them so why waste money?

    have said it often, my experience was much the same as other posters until I bought Coombers: 9 years later most of the original 30 are going strong, bought them at a special price for 40, haven't had to buy a single replacement.

    Thanks to everyone for the 'sound' advice (sorry, poor attempt at a pun I know.) Have always gone cheap and cheerful but fed up of replacing....

    LONG wait for the indestructable so gone with Coomber, &pound;11 each, hope we get 9 years out of them!
