    I have 3 kids and they constantly break the wires in their headphones. I have to buy new headphones. I have fixed the cable on a few, but the fix is not great, doesn't always work, and then easy to break again.

    I am fed up with it! To replace the whole perfectly fine headphones due to the cable breaking is ridiculous.

    Anyone know of headphones with replaceable cables? When the cable breaks I can just replace the cable as its low cost.

    Preferably with a mic as my eldest uses it for gaming.

    And not cost a fortune as they are kids and they will inevitably find another way to break them (my kids already broke my own by sitting on them and snapping it).

    Thanks

    The better sennheisser and Sony's have replaceable cables.. but for the price of one you could buy 2 or 3 cheap headphones!. Eg the sennheisser momentum with microphone cable costs 40 quid!!.

    Hmm thing is the connection between cable and earphone piece / headphone represents a potential failure point and it could happen if the offspring are rough as described

    Why not get a budget no brand wireless bluetooth earphone or headphone. No cables to break
