There are different categories of headsets:

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


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 OpenScape Desk Phone CP 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). 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 OpenScape CP phones.

Bluetooth is available with OpenScape Desk Phone CP600/700/700X only..

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