I used to wear the venerable Dave Clarks. They stood me in good stead over many years and many different types of flying. They weren't ANR but a cut ear plug did the trick. Anyway, that's old school. Until a few years ago I was wearing Sennheisers in the Hawker (bizjet). They were great until I got a pair of Bose A20s. Whilst they aren't the lightest headset on the planet, in my opinion for clarity, reliability and ruggedness they are pretty hard to beat. I've had one niggle which was swiftly resolved by the service centre for free. Very good customer service. They're not cheap and since I have had them for over 5 years, that cost per year becomes very reasonable. You might need to check the connections though for Airbus. I use rechargeable batteries and that works fine.

Anyway, congrats on your new job, I do agree the Bose Proflights look interesting.
