Intercom headsets

I'm looking at buying my own intercom headset for mobiles. Does anybody have their own set or preferences? I'm looking for something with good sound isolation and comfortable for hours at a time.

It would usually be plugged into a mobile triax/fibre camera's 5-pin intercom jack so that part is easy - either put the right connector on or make an adapter cable. I'm usually hard camera so double-muff is good. Does anyone know if different speaker or mic impedances can be an issue? (ie- my mic is way louder or quieter than everyone else's)

So far, I'm leaning toward this pair:
Telex Intercom Headsets PH-3500R: Dual-Sided Headset with 24dB NRR, Flexible Electret Boom Mic, & A4M Connector

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

My favorite intercom headset has allays been the Beyer dual muff DT109 I believe:

Headsets for Intercom - Intercom, Broadcast & TV - Headphones & Headsets - Headphones & Headsets

its completely serviceable with all parts replaceable, and its pretty much standard in most broadcast kits.

Clear com also makes a nice one as well.
