Heil is definitely the way to go.
But I'd suggest the original Proset, rather than the Proset Plus.
The original is considerably less expensive, and I've found the Plus to be less comfortable when worn for long periods.
And you probably don't need both mic elements that are in the Plus.
Get the PS-4 which has just the HC-4 element that provides a "punchier" sound for DXing and Contesting, but is not at all unpleasant for rag-chewing.
I prefer foot-switch to VOX for "hands-free" operating.
And while the Heil FS-2 foot-switch is excellent, at $44 (list) it's a bit pricey.
