There are different categories of headsets:

  • Corded headsets
  • Cordless (DECT or Bluetooth base station connects via cable to the phone)
  • "pure" Bluetooth headsets


Overview

The best audio quality is provided when using corded headsets, plugged directly into the headset socket of the phone (ask the headset supplier to get the right (adapter) cable for your headset which fits directly into the OpenStage or Desk Phone IP headset socket).

Connecting a headset to the handset cord (via external amplifier) is not a recommended configuration, from a functional and acoustical perspective.

Corded headsets are typically equipped with a 4-pin western plug. Cordless headsets (resp. their base stations), if they support the electronic hook switch functionality (EHS), do have an 8-pin western plug (to transport the signalling). No handset lifter is needed with OpenStage / Desk Phone IP. The OpenStage / Desk Phone IP socket supports both western plugs without any adapter, since the socket is hardware coded so that the 4-pin western plug does not rock around. This hardware coding also prevents, that someone plugs in a standard RJ45. Meaning, the headset 8-pin western plug is not a standard RJ45 (which could be a PoE powerd LAN cable).

The following headsets are recommended for use as an accessory with OpenStage 40, OpenStage 60, OpenStage 80, OpenScape Desk Phone IP 35G, and OpenScape Desk Phone IP 55G phones. Bluetooth is available with OpenStage 60 and 80.

More information on how to use Bluetooth see OpenStage Bluetooth.

How to configure and use Bluetooth headsets with OpenStage phones is described in the user manual of the phone.


These headsets have been certified with our desktop phones OpenStage / Desk Phone IP. Please also visit our Technology Partner homepage with certificates and test reports: [1]
