Headset for Zoom


My wife suddenly needs a noise-cancelling headset to use for teaching online college classes on Zoom. (Yes, this is a coronavirus thing.) She just now asked me to recommend a headset, since I'm the audio guy, but I know absolutely nothing about this stuff. Thus, I turn to you good folk in the hope that someone can recommend something suitable. A colleague of hers had recommended a particular Senheizer USB model (I don't know the specifics), but when my wife tried to buy a pair, they were no longer available. Thanks for any help anyone can give me on this.

Let me know too.  I need it for tele conferencing, and what puts me off the most (in addition to the costs) are the reliability ratings. Not for Sennheiser specifically, but for all of them.

I would love to find a wireless set that worked well.
I have not tried this model, but it has been on my wish list for a while:

So the link I sent before is for the only closed headset I see, but they all have noise-cancelling mics, so if she's good with an open back Sennheiser, this is cheaper:

Thanks very much, Erik. My wife ordered one of these pairs this morning. I really appreciate your help.

Howard, please let me know....

I'm not independently wealthy and keep hemming and hawing about buying one of those.
I'll report back once my wife has had the chance to try them out a time or three. That won't be right away, as they are set for delivery on Thursday, and she won't be doing a Zoom meeting until some point next week. But I'll definitely follow up. Thanks, again.

Hi, Erik. Sorry to have taken forever to respond. (I forgot, but just now remembered.) As it turned out, Amazon sent the wrong thing. By the time it arrived, my wife had decided that she was doing just fine doing her Zoom stuff without 'phones of any type, so back they went.

I recognize that that's no help whatsoever, but I added this because it seemed better than having promised to respond and then doing nothing at all.
