    I second these they are pretty good and at 4.20 a pair (min case of 40) are excellent value

    That doesn't always stop them.

    I Third these for the price. We bought 10 of them 2 years ago for our LSU where nothing lasts more than about 6 months and they are still going strong.
    They are not indestructable, but they are pretty tough and cheap.

    Did you get them through that supplier or are they available elsewhere?

    AFAIK, they are the only supplier (I've found) is it the minimum 40 that's an issue? cos it can't be the price!

    Just to clarify, Hills have 37 of these in stock, minimum order is 1 set at 3.95. Price drops to 3.30 if you order 40+. Can happily recommend Hills as have used them for over 10 years - they should be able to set you up an education account pretty quick and easy...

    No we got them from Hills, they are a good supplier and if you want more than 37 it might be worth having a word with them just to see when they are getting more stock in.

    Another +1 vote for the headphones and Hills both brillant. Headphones have lastest very well (12months+) and look and sounds very good for the price.

    At either end of the price spectrum, we have been using the GermanMaestro GMP 8.35 D (these headphones really are indestructible) for our language labs and the music department, and for lighter use the Koss Stratus UR10. Both have been very reliable.

    The GermanMaestro's are studio quality, but in my experience they can take survive the toughest enviroments. We've not had to replace one pair yet (our first batch was purchased 3 years ago!).

    We use these --|A069|MONO EARPHONE | CPC I can't remember where I got them but it was less than 1.00 each for 100 or so. OK, they are only mono but they do the job and in 5 years or so, I've had around 5 that have broken. Usually by kids chewing the lead! They are also hygienic.

    They are very friendly, I once had to call them asking for a quotation for a single pair of basic headphones (not their indestructible ones). This was because we were billing the parents of a little twerp who broke a pair. The lady on the phone suggested wrapping the cable round the student's neck.

    I have looked at the ones from Hills and they seem a reasonable buy. I am awaiting a quote for some sold by Califone in the USA which also seem to be a set that will stand up to a bit of abuse. I am considering the idea of coating the leads in some sort of varnish made from the Trinidad Scorpion Chil Pepper as a deterent to chewing
