Can anyone recommend a good headset that completely covers the ears?  I do NOT want a microphone with the headset.  I will initally use it with my Kenwood TS-930S.  Thanks.

I use an inexpensive pair of Sony, I think they were like $45 at Best Buy.  Given the limited audio range of our radios, really good headphones are sort of wasted. Comfort should probably be the first consideration.

   Some of the inexpensive headphones you can buy at electronics stores will work really nice.

I use 25+ year old RadioShack stereo headphones.  They have a long, coiled cord that some newer units lack.

I am very pleased with the comfort and performance of my Sony MDR-7506 headphones for listening only.  Check the reviews here on eHam.  They might have originally been called model MV-6, not certain on that.  But these babies sound really nice.

Sony MDR-G42LP for walkman. Sold at RS. One of the behind-the-neck type. Works the nuts with my SG2020 and FT-817. Flimsy cord though, so watch what you are doing.
