Headphones

My small JVC headset amplifies the sound and eliminates ambient noise.  Only one ear, of course. Earplugs are not as good.  What are other options?

These might be a bit bulky for UL use, but there are simply no finer DX headphones than these.  They are the standard for every radio station I ever worked at, for video production, etc.  I got my pair in 2000 when I first started in radio during college and I use them to this day.  Have logged thousands of AM and FM stations with them, thousands of QSOs on ham radio, recorded three albums of my music with them…..and I have even taken them on the road while DXing portable.   If they bit the farm tomorrow, I’d buy another pair the same day.   

Apparently quite popular with many radio engineers as well.

Yeah, a bit big for my use but it sounds like they work really well for you.
