Default Best Headsets

Who do you think makes the best headsets? What makes them better than others? I am doing some research so I can make something happen for spring.

I've seen the intercom and headset systems for air planes, they appear to be identical and cost half as much

I haven't seen one in person but I think the control box that tiger and all the other marine intercom systems use are the avionics units with a different face plate. I haven't been able to confirm it yet though.

Yup, just bought a 6 place flightcom stereo intercom, with stereo input for music for under $200. Trying out out some of the cheaper noise cancellation headsets but will probably buy a couple of Bose headsets. My father-in-law has them in his small plane and they are excellent.
Watch Ebay, there are some great deals on avionics, just be careful since not all the intercoms are stereo.
