Hear Technologies Talkback Alternatives?

Is Hear Technologies gone?
Their website (domain name) seems to have expired.

Anyway, I was looking to purchase the 600mv talkback system with wireless talkback but have unfortunately found out that they've been discontinued.

Does anyone know of an alternative wireless talkback system?

I'm doing fine with the Avocet plus extra talkback through DSUB, but I thought having the 600mv plus wireless talkback switches would be a nice, elegant solution.

Can't seem to find anything comparable...

The Mytek system or the Masque system is a lot better, but costly. Used Hear and Aviom, didn't care for them compared to the system that Masque offers or the Mytek. Older Myteks had an external connector problem, would not take studio abuse (of course, none of the cheap ones like Hear stand up at all) but they fixed that issue. The Masque has/had an internal connector that comes loose and needs to be plugged back in... not such a big deal except that there are 20 or more screws to get into each station and a couple are under handles and require small right angled screwdrivers. That might have been addressed by now, too.

Wasn't talking about a cue system (I've got one). Rather a 2 channel (for stereo mix to cue system) talkback device with wireless remotes, like the 600mv.

I guess there aren't any alternatives, judging by the lack of replies.
Is this an area of the market manufacturers are missing out on?
I would have thought yes but then I guess the 600mv must have been discontinued from lack of sales so maybe not...
