Hi Jim,

     I am using a Koss QZ/99 headset. They are NOT an active noise 
canceling headset. They are the kind of headset that keeps extraneous 
noise out of your ears by fully covering your ears and having a nice 
liquid filled cushion to maintain a good acoustic seal around your ears. 
They are stereo headphones with a miniature stereo phone plug, a 1/4" 
standard hone plug adaptor, and a stereo/mono switch in the cord. I use 
mine with my Omni VI and Paragon II, and really like the way they work 
for me. AES sells them, and I'm sure other ham equipment suppliers do 
too. I like mine so much, I bought another set for the XYL.
