I do handle them carefully, I have not had problems but I assume that they cannot be as tough and durable as more traditional and clunky designs. I do not expect them to last a lifetime as some of the DC old-timers cheerfully claim for theirs, but I am currently very happy with them and will not begrudge it if (when) I have to replace them.

Before I went with Avee, I looked at uflymike but they could not supply the Bose microphone adapter, they were having manufacturing problems, that may have changed. Avee were a joy to deal with - instant response to email enquiries and incredibly rapid shipment, plus helpful and instant response when I found the standard microphone boom too short. They shipped to Edinburgh by DHL and I had it within less than 48 hours from my 1st contact with them.
Thanks - im definitely going to look into this option - and given your Avee success probably stick to that - im based just outside Edinburgh so nice to know the postage was prompt

I didn't like the velcro part of NFlightcam so that would rule that out

I imagine that the headphones are liable to be part of a decent sale over the next few months, so will keep my eye on that.

Also will try a few different sets if I can get my hands on some at the club

Cheers
