Approx. Life of Recording Heads PD-170&Vx2100

I've got a friend that has a VX2100 and a PD-170, he has around 290-300 hours on his PD-170, the VX has been barely used. I was wondering if you guys know about the exact life of the recording heads, as i have got mixed responses on this from other people before, and Sony won't tell you, or i cannot find that on Sony's site, but any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you

The good news is that there's little news on this subject. Why so? because head wear is not something that's bothered this list or any other of the lists I frequent. There's more chance of other things going wrong in the time it takes to wear out the VX/PD heads, and I for one don't give it a second though. Hey, I use both my VXs a LOT.
