Understanding Direct Connect Cables vs. Amplifiers:

When using any H-series headset, a Direct Connect Cable or amplifier is required to plug in between your headset and phone.  Using a Direct Connect Cable will save you money versus an amplifier, but an amplifier will provide optimum sound quality and volume controls.

Direct Connect Cable:

  • Less expensive
  • Easy to install into headset port
  • Takes up virtually no desk space
  • Limited to use with compatible phones only (Your future phone may not be compatible and require an amplifier)

Amplifier: (Poly M22)

  • Compatible with most phones
  • Battery or AC powered to provide optimal sound quality
  • Speaker volume adjustment
  • Microphone volume adjustment (Key point that Direct Connect Cable doesn’t have)
  • Lifting handset each call may be required depending on your phone

  1. Paula B

    We have been using these cables for over 20 years and have absolutely no problems with them. They work great. We have 50+ phones that use them and very seldom do they go bad and need to be replaced. They are an essential part of our service to all of our members.

  2. johns s

    I’ve had this cord and a headset for years, and have never had any trouble. When two other people in my office wanted one, I recommended this. It is great to be able to wear the headset and disconnect it from the direct cable and be able to move around the office.

  3. Kaya H

    One point of connection became loose on one of our headsets and replacing this cord fixed the problem. This was an easy and affordable fix.

  4. Tail Activewear

    Great connection and no feedback or cracking in the line. Snaps in to headset with ease.

  5. SAndey

    After I received the correct one it works fine

    Good product, works great so far

  14. Association

    Not many “forgot” they were plugged in but those that did nearly re-arranged their desktops.
    Cord has good strong connection which we hope will have longevity.
