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.
