We ask students to provide their own headphones for use during all lessons.
In one suite which we use for extended schools etc we have the headphones with the single cable to one ear and we hang them up in a cupboard with a broom shank across. I.e. hooking the headphones across and let them dangle - much better than gettign the students to wrap the cables up etc.

We are going to supply 1 in-ear headphone set per student at the beginning of this year, and if they break or lose them then they will have to supply a new pair themselves.
If you hunt around the internet, you can get bulk deals on them for as cheap as 50p a pair, and that works out a lot cheaper than buying decent headphones for the places that need or want them.

This year I have added headphones and a data key as 'essential kit' to the academic year booklist for all students, so that they are responsible for their own warez. If broken then they replace them at their own expense.

We're lucky in Adult Ed that stuff doesn't get trashed but storing the headphones is always an interesting problem... they usually end up all over the desk but the new PC tower holders have drawers in so they can go in those now
As for the volume on mic I noticed this when building the new image for summer... what you need is microphone boost enabled and the setvol utility that's floating round here somewhere to reset the volume to say 75% at each boot
