I had passed down to me, a set of lighweight over-the-ear Plantronics and a set of Pilots, with articulated boom. Bummers, both. The Plantronics just didn't do the job (one ear) and the Pilots were plain uncomfortable.
I wanted a passive set so I didn't have to fool with batteries. Sigtronics S-58 have many of the best features (gel ear seals, flexible boom, electret mic, 5 year warranty, etc) and are among the lightest in weight. If you shop the internet, reasonable and competitive prices can be found. They come with a carrying bag. I liked the first set well enough to go for a second for my wife. It was a tossup with Lightspeed, though.
They are medium priced and can be found at a number of web sites, including Sporty's at around $250.00.
Considering the price and lifetime warranty the ASA HS-1 headset is a great value. I currently have them available on my new web site through the end of April for $114.95 with free domestic shipping. http://www.stormscopes.com
