I had a look at the most famous brands such as Sennheiser, David Clark, Bose etc...but I'm still not sure which one to choose. Definitely I wouldn't go for on ear headsets, because I find them uncomfortable for a long day of work, but I would definitely go for some in-ear (such as the new Proflight Bose (BTW has anyone tried them, they look very interesting)) or over-ear headsets.

Please give me all your experience on it!

Thanks and safe landings!
I'm a big fan of the Telex 850, I know it's on-ear, but I've had great luck with mine, including four and a half years on the A320.
