    Shops that sell headphone adaptor for Planes?

    I'm after one of these: Airline Headphone Seat Adaptor - Airplane 3.5mm Stereo: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    But don't have time to buy online. Anyone know of any shops that sells them?

    Make your own...

    just get two pairs of old headphones, cut the wires, strip them back a bit and join to second connector. its a bit 'Heath Robinson' but it should do the trick.

    And if they've got neat 90 degree jacks on them that would actually be more comfortable than having the adaptor jabbing into your leg the whole way
    Great idea

    You was lucky. Normally you would only get it in one ear.

    You can buy them from shops in the airport but i should imagine they are not cheap.
