walkie talkie headphones

Hi:

I am looking at buying some walkie talkie headphones so that the admiral and I can communicate better when we are on opposite ends of the boat. I saw some that were reviewed in Practical Sailor recently but can't find the magazine. Does anyone know of any of the ones in PS or any other source for this type of headphone.

Thanks Rangiroo:

Exactly what I was looking for and reasonably priced as well. What kind of batteries do they use?

Charlie,
It says 9 volt. I suppose it's the typical #216.

Thanks Steve:

I guess I should read closer. How are things on Whidbey Island? I have to head up there on business in a few months.
