Headsets save necks! (need a headset for cisco phone)

I need a recommendation for a headset to buy to use with my Cisco IP Phone 7960 series, ideally over-the-ear (not over-the-head) and around $50 or less.

I'm starting to spend a lot of time on the phone at work while needing two hands free to work a keyboard and mouse. Speakerphone isn't a good option as I have co-workers on the other side of a cube-wall who don't want to hear every conference call I'm on.
My employer is on acute expense lock-down mode, so I'll have to buy this myself.
My work phone is a Cisco IP phone 7960 series.
According to the Cisco web site:
The Cisco IP Phone 7940/7960 supports a four- or six-wire headset jack (Plantronics H series compatible is required).
but when I look at the headset jack on the back of the phone I only see 4 contacts in the jack.
Bonus - if there's a headset that meets the above criteria and would also allow me to hook up an iPod to listen to music when not on the phone, that would great.
