    Telephone headset

    I'm looking for an adapter to add a headset to a regular hard wired telephone. No dialer is needed, just to plug in after call is established and make it hands free. ( not a speaker phone )

    Any ideas for something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to buy?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Paul,
    Thanks for the link but that is for a telephone pick up coil, not for adding a headset to a phone. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    Re: Telephone headset

    Bob,

    I sometimes use a headset I purchased at Staples on my home phone. It's hardwired with cordless handsets that have an outlet for a headset on them so you can make the call and then hang the handset on your belt and wear the headset through the entire process. I believe it was a Plantronics. HTH.

    Re: Telephone headset

    Doc,
    That's close to what I need but it does require a cordless phone with a headset jack. I did check out Plantronics first time around but didn't see any usable adapter. The two for a corded phone were the upper price range types.

    There HAS to be something like this around. I'm not reinventing the wheel with this, or am I?

    Re: Telephone headset

    There are, but you'll have to spend at least $50 to get something like what you are looking for.

    I'm guessing that you want something to attach to a hardwired base with a corded handset. To do that you need a seperate amplifier for the headset since you will not have access to the amplifier for the corded handset and an adapter wouldn't either (AFAIK).

    Not over $40 to $50.
    This would be a nicety not a necessity.

    Re: Telephone headset

    Maybe you can find this one somewhere local and not have to pay shipping.

    [small Edited by Doc to add....</small> Or skip the eBay site and get it from the same source for $10 less !!! <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>

    Re: Telephone headset

    That looks pretty close, with a few more bells, gongs and whistles than I need but I can at least use that product info to look around. That seller is on ebay ( shudder! ) must be other places that handle it.

    An aside: That is a Sony HEATSET as advertised !

    Thanks Doc, I will do some searching on it.

    I found it in several places for $39.99 + shipping. Even that eBay seller had it on his site for that price (see the second link in my previous post).
