Default Headphones for Skype

My new job involves alot of Skype conferences and using my in-ear headphones just doesn't cut it. I'm looking for some headphones that offer sound isolation and are good at only picking up my voice*. Any recommendations? I would prefer to keep things around $100 after taxes. I'm in the Vancouver region and would like to pick them up in-store.

this isn't really a big deal for me, I was just planning on heading out to Bestbuy/Futureshop to get something cheap and just wanted anyone's thoughts.

*I work from home and there are ALOT of ambient sounds

EDIT: you know what....I think I'm going to make this a little bit harder for you guys ;) I think I would like a pair of WIRELESS headphones with a hardware mic on/off switch(not too picky about the switch honestly). I don't necessarily need long-range reception; I just don't want to have to keep taking them on and off.

EDIT2: this is on a laptop; large desktop receivers are NOT okay, big USB plugs are fine though.
