I am looking to get some headphones for my brother. Based on the advice of people here last year I got him some Sennheiser headphones complete with attached microphone. They are wonderfully comfy and made for a good sound too.

Unfortunately he managed to dislodge the wire such that sound only came through one side. He has done something similar with several pairs of cheap headphones I've given him.

So, rather than strap a tank to his head I want some headphones that have no wire for him to destroy, but to further limit my choice I need one with a microphone.

Suggestions? Budget will flex to accommodate. Looking for a good sound, and I presume this particular market is not exactly large.

Don't know much but as no one's replied:
Some headphones have detachable cables. Some Sennheisers do I think as well as others. It's a shame it's not more common as cables can be quite brittle. You may want to look on head-fi and get a DIYer to replace your broken cables.
Wireless microphones are quite common.
The only wireless headphone and mic solution I could suggest would be rather tank like I'm afraid: Wireless USB hub to sound card, both battery powered, glued onto the headphones smile.gif.

Hmmm, in that case a recommendation for a decent headset with mic with detachable cable please smile.gif

The sennheiser HD580s I used to have had removable cables. Didn't think much of these headphones but many people like them a lot.
