Do not buy a headset until discussing the issue with a CFI. You will have the opportunity to borrow different kinds and determine if a purchase is right for you and what kind of headset is right for you.  It is not a cheap investment.  That said, if you want a quality, durable, everyday headset, the David Clark H10-13.4 is recommended.
