PC Headset Adapter converts a standard computer headset with dual 3.5m audio plugs into a RJ9 direct connect headset designed for Cisco 7942G IP Phone. This means that you use a standard consumer-grade headset, which is cheaper and widely available, instead of buying an expensive specialized headset.
This solution gives you great flexibility to choose a headset you like. For example, you can use chat headset that you may already use with your computer. Or purchase gaming headset that will block most outside noise. Or choose between behind-the-neck and boom-style headset. As far as the headset has an individual plugs for Headphone and Microphone, it's compatible with our adapter. And you still can use it with your computer or gaming console.
Our headset adapters for Cisco Unified IP Phones allow you to use all features that Cisco 7940 Unified IP Phone provides. You can answer a call with either headset or handset, and you may switch between them during the conversation. You can use Auto-Answer with the headset or the handset. You can save volume settings separately for speakerphone, handset or headset. These adapters are compatible with hearing-aid in-line amplifiers.
And here are some additional ideas, how you can use these adapters...
- You can connect external desktop speakers and external microphone, and use standard Cisco 7940 phone as a conference station.
