      I think that more important than any one particular name brand, we should suggest actual models. I recently added a couple models to my collection, in part because my teenage guys keep using mine, so I’m going to share here a couple pictures I took of them. If you go to Amazon, for example, you can do a product comparison, because what matters most is their characteristics: very light (3-4 ounces), dual as opposed to single earphone, noise cancelling, in-line volume/mute control, USB connector (for computer use), NOT wireless (reliability), etc.

      beatsx earphones – I recommend because you want a wireless and lightweight headset for long days. A big headset will end up giving you a headache after a couple of hours

      I’m new to this world, so I have no idea, but on LinkedIn I started following a CMI who has a blog post where she recommends looking into the brands Corsair, Plantronics, Enterprise and Sennheiser. The information didn’t seem sponsored to me. The interpreter’s name is Kelly Grzech.
