I use a Telex aviation headset but have replaced the cartridge with a 
Heil cartridge and have replaced the earphone speakers with 8.0 ohm 
speakers because of the poor performance due to wrong impedences for 
amateur radio equipment. I have two Telex sets for six and they work very 
welll indeed. Very comfortable and very rugged
