Default El Metronomico Perfecto

I'm searching for the perfect metronome. I have a DB-30 right now, which is great, but the battery life is ridiculously short. The only features I'm concerned with are:

-Headphone jack sends signal to both ears
-Volume control
-Long battery life

It'd also be nice to have some subdivisions, and perhaps a tap function, but I'm definitely willing to sacrifice those for a longer battery life. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Thanks!

I'm bumping this as I'm also searching for a great metronome. I want one with all the bells and whistles imaginable but something that's not complicated to use. I've been using the detachable module off of my Roland RMP-2 practice pad for 3 yrs. now and while it works, it's tedious.

What is the ultimate metronome?

Tama Rhythmwatch. Nice big display, and the many subdivision options are all controllable by dials. Expensive but worth it, as it's ease of use makes it more appealing to use.

Many people still love the old DB66. It was nice and loud. Did most things needed without a lot of bells and whistles. You'll probably have to find one used though.

Here's one that's similar to the one's mentioned.
