Need Good Headset/Mic for Avaya Phone

I am looking for a good headset with boom microphone to use with an Avaya phone.
I want the choice of either speaking on the headset or handpiece.  The phone is mounted vertically - I don't want something with a lever to lift the handpiece.

700340169  appears to be the model number.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hands down Jabra makes great headsets.  I use it for Cisco phones and I am happy as I am able to move freely with a wireless headset.  Refer to the link below for the products for Avaya:

I think the phone you have is an Avaya Partner 6D.

Normally, if the phone is designed to work with a headset, there's a separate button, often with "headphones" on it, that acts as the Pick Up button to answer calls.  

I'm not sure if that phone has it.  Sometimes, phones can ONLY have either the handset OR headset connected - check the back for the number of sockets.

Jabra are great as per above, but also Sennheiser are worth looking at.   We use the Sennheiser DW Office wireless headsets, and also the Jabra Pro 920 wireless ones, as well as Sennheiser SC 630 wired ones.  They're all very capable, and popular with our users.  The cables often have 2 parts, and the lower "bottom" cable (nearest the phone) is specific to that phone for that headset manufacturer.  

Your basic choices are whether you want single or double earpieces, and whether it's wired or wireless.  If you go wireless, you may then need to consider encryption types, ranges, and whether you want (and your phones support) Remote Answer.  After that, it's just how much you want to pay, and personal preference.   A headset vendor near you can probably advise further.
