I'm looking for recommendations for earphones. Most come with a cable that's just a bit too short, the standard seems to be 1-1.2m which ties me to the LHS of the keyboard. 1.5m is far more comfortable to use with a piano.
Can anyone recommend me a make/model that would suit? I'm happy to pay a reasonable amount for sound quality, I'm not looking for something under 10€ - but not wanting to go to 100 either.
Unfortunately, often on websites and even on the packaging itself, cable length is missing as though irrelevant, which is why I thought I'd ask here as I'm sure many of you have the same issues.

Get the extension jack cable which you should be able to find at most music (instrument) dealers or audio dealers.
A little pair that came free with a laptop have a 1.5m cable (i measured it because it's perfect) - the problem is they're they little plug type things that pop out if you cough or even breath too deeply.
ETA....though maybe a hat crammed on tightly on top would help to secure them?
I have the Sennehiser HD457, excellent sound and very comfortable to wear for long periods. They also have a straight cable.
I'm delighted and I suspect my neighbours are even more so.
