The Bose electronic noise cancelling headsets are (arguably) the best, however 
they are also by far the most expensive. Almost-as-good aviation headsets are 
made by Lightspeed, and sell for $300 - $500 (microphone included). They are 
also pretty comfortable for full size over the ear type headsets. I would 
assume that the microphone elements could be replaced by a Heil HC4 or HC5 if 
you were so inclined. I have not used mine except in the airplane, so I can't 
comment on its SSB audio quality. My VHF/AM reports have always been good.

I've never found noise reduction necessary in my shack. We pilots are basically 
already deaf, so amplifier fan noise and the like don't bother us! ;>)
