Need wireles headset info fo wenesday shoot

I'm doing sound on Wednesday for a 5d shoot. it's a last minute thing with an out of town dp and producer, and after going pver the particulars, they called back and want two wireless headphone sets, onefor each of the clients. I'm running the mic(s) into my SD302 mixer. Two questions:
1- What kind of headsets should I rent, and
2- How do I hook them up with the sd302?
Also, would it be easier to go with wired?
There's a decent renatl place I can call in the am, but would appreciate any feedback .
Thanks

Wait for the heavyweights to weigh in but the gold standard among those I know is the Countryman E6 headset mic.

I think he wants wireless monitoring headphones.

For that, take the headphone output of the mixer and split it with a y-cable. Rent a Comtek system with a transmitter and two receivers. They usually come with cheap Sennheiser mono headsets.

It will be a lot cheaper to do wired headphones, but more cumbersome with all the cables. You probably also would want a headphone distribution amplifier (DA) since three headphones will take a lot of power to drive, and if someone unplugs their cans, the level in the other two will jump up.
