When it comes down to the very last dB at stations with very low volume our ears are the final hurdle at reception. In this case a good set of headphones help tremendously to receive a distorted signal better and more certain. Be aware that headphones suited for radio are intentionally not designed for HiFi pleasure. Frequency range is usually way lower, especially at the bass. This is done on purpose because deep rumble noises interfere with low volume receiving signals.

Another criterion is wearing comfort. Especially contest operation lasting for hours headphones should fit comfortably without stressing the ears. In quiet environments an open system serves well because of the reduced weight.
