Since this is AVS, I assume many of you game using your home theater setups so using a headphone that covers both ears is pretty much out of the question.

I'm looking for something with these things in mind:

1- Will cover only one ear, would be great if it's transparent enough that would allow me to listen to my surroundings normally from that ear as well.
2- Has excellent noise cancelling so we can crank the volume up without annoying the hell out of your team mates.
3- Comfortable for long sessions
4- Must be On ear, in ear stuff are too annoying

- Price isn't an issue as long as it's worth it
- Wireless is a +, but definitely not a requirement
- Any input method is fine since I chat via Skype on PC, not through consoles, maybe Next gen consoles will be good enough to change that.

I've been using this Logitech Headset since 2009 till it stopped functioning properly recently, it was pretty good, my voice was loud and clear, but the noise cancelling plus earphone transparency could be better.

Any suggestions would be great.

I would think a headset used for telephone conversations would be the best bet. People wear them 40 hours a week at work. My girlfriend had to do this. Noise canceling should be good, bit I imagine this type would be expensive. Good luck, hope someone can help more.
