My favorite is the Sony MDR-W08 which I use with my Yaesu FT-1000D 
and 990. They weigh 13g (0.5 oz) and I can wear them all weekend, no 
problem.  As they are inside the ear type of phones, they probably 
wouldn't be good in a multi environment since they don't block 
outside noise. Biggest problem is getting up and forgetting they are 
still on my head :.) Here in the US, I bought mine at Walmart for 
about $10.

Here's a web site (first one that came up on Google for me. I have no 
affiliation with the site) with a picture:

Between these headphones (no more "headphone head") and my Herman 
Miller Aeron chair (no more "chair butt" either), I could operate 
forever, except for sleep and a few other things...
