Intercom, noise canceling headphones

Has anyone found a good wireless noise canceling intercom set up? My Thiokol is pretty noisy, not so bad you can't talk, but you have to talk loud. I imagine operating for several hours could be fatiguing, and lead to hearing loss. I have an old aircraft headset set but it is old, has a wire that gets in the way, they're bulky, and kind of flaky. The motorcycle and snowmobile industry have gone a long way with helmet coms, but obviously we don't need a helmet, at least I hope most of us don't. I would like a setup that would have noise canceling headphones, wireless intercom, an additional plus would be music, and CB. Any input?

I like fire-com. http://www.firecom.com/ wired, wireless. radio interfaces, noise cancelling hearing protection.... And like most things you want for a snowcat, expensive. Occasionally you can find the wired ones on the used market, but haven't seen any wireless so far.

At this point, Wireless and Ultimate quality of Noise Cancellation is a bit of a misnomer. If you want one, you miss out on the other. Truly. Although, it can be achieved at a lower level of accomplishment, it is not all that you can achieve without a wired connection.

In my most humble opinion and although it may or may not be in your price range, this is simple the best.

When you want the best, you learn to sacrifice all else. It becomes a choice of what you want and what you are willing to accept. Nothing less.
