All of mine are either red or white so they are easier to find in the dark. All except one.  A corporate client decided to start using one on stage during head table type staging and I thought hed really like the red phones but nope, had to be black.

Mine used to be white about 25 years ago.  It's now kinda a dingy beige/yellow/ick color, but it's still one of my prized possessions along with my Baby Blue speaker station.

That's crazy. In my experience, when the show is at full tilt, radios with shoulder mics are unusable, where com (via these handsets) is a sure bet. I never have any issues hearing over com during 105dBA+ shows.

For me it is a clarity issue. I can't understand the words with the background noise. It is in the brain not the ears.

I can't hold a conversation in a noisy party or sporting event, either.

Maybe I could put a pay phone at the side of the stage for the band to discuss the monitor mixes. It would cost them a dime for each adjustment  :)

Haha.  With some bands that would be a good idea.

Ya, Whatever. Just throw a '57 on it, and get off my stage.

I needed a cheap, point-to-point intercom and went to an army surplus sale, bought two sets of TP6N field telephone.

Early 1950s, my dad worked for a phone company in ND. At the time they transitioned from crank to rotary dial. He saved a few phones from the dump -- two oak wall phones, a Bakelite wall phone, and a Bakelite desk phone (which has a crank where you'd expect to see a dial).

Sometime in the 1990s I resurrected them, connecting them as an interview between the house, shop, and sauna.

My brother has the place now. I should repossess those phones, I could use an intercom between my house, shop, and barn.
