A middle of the road set is fine. Fancy noise cancelling thngs cost an absolue fortune and really aren't necessary in most PPL flying.
Look for a set that is not heavy and has a good seal around the ear. Also does not clamp onto your head which becomes very panful after a short while. That rules out David Clarkes. They are, imo, one of the most uncomfortable headsets around.
My vote is for a standard Peltor which I wore for years in commercial helicopter work. If its good enough for helos its way good enough for spancans.

If you can try other club-members' headsets - the ony real way to see what suits is to use it, and it's too late for that if you've already bought one!
