Corded Headset Cables & Amps

Corded Headset Cables & Amps

When considering headsets for your office, your primary focus needs to be to find a model that fits comfortably for all-day wearing, as well as one that works well in your environment, as related to background noise and use of noise-canceling microphones.  The primary focus of your headset supplier needs to be to find either corded headset cables or corded headset amps that connect your headset to your telephone, mobile phone, computer, or console.  It’s important to understand that a headset does not plug directly into your phone or computer, and a connecting piece is required.

Corded Headset Cables & Amps

Why doesn’t a headset plug directly into your phone? Business-grade headsets terminate in a unique connection called a quick disconnect. This allows any headset to be used in any application. To complete a compatible headset solution, corded cables or corded headset amps, relevant to your device, are needed. If you find headsets that plug directly into your device, they are specifically made for that device and offer no versatility, if you change devices. If you prefer a headset that fits differently, your model options will be severely limited.

The differences between wired headset cables and wired headset amps is significant. Wired headset cables are less expensive, take up less desk space, and are only compatible with newer phones. You will need to determine which cable is compatible with your phone or PC because there are 15-20 different cables currently available with wiring and volume differences. Wired headset amps are the original connecting device which offer slightly better audio quality, have speaker and microphone volume adjustments, a mute button, and are universally compatible with most phones.

You can research compatibility guides on your own when searching for corded headset cables or corded headset amps, but it can be confusing. For example, many customers already have corded headset cables in use and simply need additional units. At first glance, it seems like you should be able to match what you have with a picture online. The problem with that is most cables look so similar, you won’t know that you ordered the wrong cable until it’s plugged in and no sound comes through your headset. You're now wasting precious time and shipping expense on wired headset cables and wired headset amps instead of taking care of your business.
