My wife bought me a set of Heil Pro-Set Plus head phones for my
birthday.  I really liked them.  Then one day her headphones broke.  She
is a medical transcriptionist, working at home.  She wears headphones 8
hours a day 5 days a week.  She borrowed my Heil head phones.  You can
see where this is going.  I never got them back - she loves them.  So
now I have to hope that I will get another pair for Christmas.

I love my Beyer Dynamic DT-770 headphones, but they were relatively
expensive.  They have no microphone attached.  They are high fidelity,
and low impedance -- 8 ohms, I think.  I prefer these to my Heil
headphones because of their transient-free response to CW and my Kenwood
AGC characteristics.   

For decades I used various Koss low-impedance phones.  They were
moderately priced and had excellent transient response, too.
