I'm open to headsets for sure. As long as I don't sound like a sports broadcaster. Any recommendations?

So I'm still inclined to go with the super cardioid LDC with some strategic placement and treatment. I'll set it all up just before Christmas, so ill upload some samples then for anyone that may be curious.
