Headsets for Docking

Discuss equipment for your boat here.
Just acquired a pair of Uniden brand UHF CB Radios (UHF507SX-2NB) with headsets, so the Admiral and I can communicate during docking without disturbing the neighbours. Fit the headset and the radio becomes voice activated(VOX), no pushing buttons to talk. I see other uses too, like ship to dinghy.
Cost $95 delivered, bought on Ebay from Pocketronics, a retail shop in Leichhardt, Sydney(Home). Same price on their website.
Do they work? Untried as yet, both units currently on the mains power charger.Uniden is a known brand, I have their handheld VHF for back up, friends report it has better signal than my fixed GME brand VHF.
The radios should be fine. The question about the headsets is how well you can hear other things from people other than the two of you.
