You can buy direct from Oldham but they cost big money, around £21 each last time I looked, even then you get them in 5's.
I think Caving Supplies will be able to supply you one but no idea on price.
Cheap option would be to buy a couple of used headsets off Ebay for parts.
The Oldham cable is very high spec, hence the price

HI .I have several cables attached to lamp one end and battery top at the other, somewhere in my shed in good condition too, you could have one for the postage end packing or you could pick up.

I can make you the same offer as minerat, I also have loads of Oldams bits and pieces knocking about. I know you live fairly close by so it may be easier to pick them up...

PM me if you're interested.
