    What they are worth is probably little or nothing. I have several headphones that cost between $200 to $500 USD that I haven't been able to sell, because the market is glutted with them. If your headphone (likely a Panasonic or similar low-cost studio version) were something like a Beyer DT-48 or one of the rare limited edition Sony's that sell for $1000 or so used, then you could try selling it on eBay. Note that having analog volume controls on a headphone is very undesirable for sonic fidelity.

    Bugging me because I cannot find them on anything on the web. Would be nice to know what they were to be honest. I cannot really sell them even for £5 if I cannot state what they are.

    The first things I look at are the earcups and then the headband supports that hold the earcups. That's why I thought of Panasonic. But rather than a quality, pricy headphone made for critical studio monitoring, yours looks like the kind that studios buy in boxes of 50-100 for non-critical listening for session musicians etc. But even then, yours may sound good. Most headphones sold today sound worse than many of the 30-year-old models.

    Wire is a little loose so got it in a position where sound comes through fully and would say they are 7/10 sound wise.
