    depend on the context you are working for, because type also have character.
    Formal : Franklin, Helvetica black version
    Informal: Impact, or Slab serif

    How about a bit more background on the project? What's the tone, the audience, etc.?

    What kind of headlines?

    If it's like, advertising headlines...there are probably a hundred thousand different & equally awesome options....just depends what kind of message you're trying to get across.

    If you're thinking more like...traditional newspaper-esque headlines, then I think there was some merit to a lot of previous posts—Futura, Bebas Neue, etc.

    It all depends on the context and what message you're trying to convey. Just throwing out the question "what's a good headline type?" is like asking "what is a good color?" Well, I like neon orange but that doesn't make it a good color for a funeral.

    Same with type. It depends on what you are trying to design. The heading for a fashion mag will be different than a sports page than an advertisement for a kids show. Type is supposed to help you work towards what you're trying to communicate.

    I lately used NOVECENTO, VERLAG and STAG SANS. They are all Sans and it works great with all caps.
