Northern Tool sells shooters ear muffs with small speakers and an 1/8"
miniplug.  Our NOC uses them and the same switch arrangement.  Don't skip on
the Plantronics units.  You really want the one with volume control on the
base unit.  They sell an off hook switch too.

BTW ... All the DUNE epsiodes air in sequence this Sunday for SciFi adicts
with VCRs.
