The best 'phones for cw are the old style magnetic types because they
have a resonance around 800 Hz. I found new mil HS-19 headphones at
Army Surplus Warehouse (http://armysurpluswarehouse.com).
The other option would be aircraft headphones. Search the aviation
supply web sites. You might be able to restore your Telex headphones or
fix up a set of David Clark 'phones. Marv Golden Pilot Supply has
replacement parts and ear cushions.
