Hi Barry

The biggest problems with these type of headphones (and most
others) is they are designed for music and stereo use.  The highs
and lows are WAY beyond what is needed for communication.  I have
an old set of WW2 earphones from a B-29 bomber.  They are the
best thing I've ever used except after a while they get kind of
heavy.  73
