Please be informed that there are different categories of headsets: Corded, cordless (DECT or Bluetooth base station connects via cable to the phone) and "pure" Bluetooth devices. The best audio quality is provided when using corded headsets. Headset audio quality may be suffering when using other interfaces like DECT & Bluetooth.

Corded headsets are typically equipped with a 4-pin western plug. Cordless headsets, if they support the electronic hook switch functionality, do have an 8-pin western plug (to transport the signalling). The OpenStage 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).

Answering a call is simply done via the headset key. Neither an amplifier nor headset lifter are needed. Ask the headset supplier to get the right (adapter) cable for your headset which fits directly into the OpenStage headset socket.

The following headsets are recommended for use as an accessory with OpenStage 40, OpenStage 60 and OpenStage 80 phones.

More information on how to use Bluetooth see OpenStage Bluetooth.

How to use Bluetooth headsets with OpenStage phones see pdf.png  User Manual OpenStage 60-80 HFA HP3000-HP5000 on page 167.
