The over-the-ear Bose QuietComfort headphones are quite good. Reasonably
comfy, as the name suggests, and they cut out a lot of noise & chatter even
without any music on.

The only problem is that you can't even hear yourself properly on a Skype
call, so you end up bellowing, making it more difficult for colleagues to
get work done!
