We tried those about 5 years ago. We no longer use them as there was always tooo much static interference. I am guessing, mostly from the tug as the frequency of the static changed with tug engine rpm.

It would be more convenient than the cable headphone thing that's connected to the front of the aircraft(not sure what it's called), since the ground crewman would be able to inform the pilot from a point of view other than the nose gear. Also I think it would be safer since he wouldn't have to get so close to the A/C.
