We're using Califone 2924AV-PSs which, like the TELEXs, are sturdy and too
ugly to steal.

Hi

We've been using twelve buck TELEX phones for years...uncomfortable as hell,
but verrrrry sturdy. We tried using cheapie Koss phones for awhile, but
found they were lasting about two weeks out of the package...

Has anyone here used disposable headphones for viewing stations in your
institution? We're replacing headphones at an alarming rate due to
mishandling by our students. An instructor suggested something along the
line of what is used by the airlines. I realize that the sound quality on
those is fairly bad. Maybe someone here knows of a decent product.

Many thanks.
