It is worth noting that both sides of air traffic normally wear high quality headphones optimised for voice & not music for a good reason.
I use an old Pye speaker that was built to a standard, not down to a price. It was also designed for voice not music & the difference that it makes to reception is surprising.

Edited to add. Plus of course both sides largely expect what they are hearing, which makes a difference. Their QSO's are very formulaic, with most traffic being expected questions, answers & comments being made.

Totally agree with Alans comment re what the operators expect to hear making it easier to understand ,this is particularly noticeable when trying to decipher aircraft call signs when the pilots have very strong accents even though they are speaking English, try listening to the USAF pilots out of lakenheath and getting the cs right first time .
