You guys always have great advice, so I need some recommendations. I work in a call center and we are issued plantronics brand headsets. They're fairly comfortable, it they let a lot of ambient noise through.
I am looking for a decent set of wireless headphones, with a fair amount of noise cancellation going on, or even noise cancellation.
I would prefer rechargeable since I'll be using them for 8 hours a day, so I don't want to have to buy batteries constantly. Ideally, I would like to stay in the $45-55 range.
Or, if anybody has some recommendations on websites with decent deals, please share them as well.

I have a Jabra one I've been using for a few years. I don't know if it is a currently available model but I bought it for an Avaya phone, and it works just fine with our newer Polycom phones we picked up for Lync. The comfort is good, and I haven't had complaints about how I sound from other people. It recharges on a stand next to my phone. I don't know if it goes 8 hours on one charge though - I'd research that. I don't ever talk for more than 4 hours on the phone with it in a stretch, I would imagine.
GN9330 model number. //edit: Amazon reviews indicate low talk time, I would probably look at the Plantronics options instead.
I agree that an 8 year old should have no expectation of privacy. I'm mostly thinking towards the future and the fact that they will accept monitoring that starts at 8 or 9 much more easily than monitoring that starts at 13 or 14.
