Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

I just spoke with them. The lady I got didn't think at first that this one did two sources at all, but I had her look at the features part. She said that they have no 3.5mm connection adapter for the phone side, but she said she would email their shipping people to see if they can get such a thing. So much for Plantronics telling me that no such product existed.

Yes, you may want to contact headsets.com customer support and ask them
about that. They may be able to steer you in the right direction.

Oh, OK. I wonder if they make a way to have it hook into the 4 band 3.5mm
jacks on the phone side? I think I get how this is supposed to work where
some phones had the removable cord on the handset part, and you plug a cable
from the amp part into this instead, and the original phone cable in to the
other side, sort of like answering machines did.

The Amplifier is for the phone itself. The Amp plugs into where the
handset
would be, and you run the headset that way. I've used it before, and they
work Ok.

I am surprised Plantronics never mentioned that one. Maybe there isn't a
way
to have a 3.5mm 4-ring plug for the phone end. I don't care at all about
the
play and fastforward buttons. I wonder why one needs an amplifier at all
unless you were hearing impaired.

You can visit headsets.com. They have a model made by Plantronics that
does
exactly what you're talking about here. I've included a link to the
product
page below.

Subject: dual source headsets, where to get?

I am wondering how you go about getting a dual source headset to be able
to
hear JFW on one side and have a phone call on the other side. Even
better,
it would be nice if the microphone sent its output back to the phone. I
tried getting quotes on a sight called Thumbtack, and I spoke with a guy
who
answered who does audio engineering on the side. He thinks he could make
a
cable where I could plug any headset mic in to do this, as long as it had
the combination jack that combines the headset and mic on it. If one was
going to use a phone that has the same kind of jack as the iPhone, which
uses the 4-band, 3.5mm connector, does such a product exist? The closes
thing I found years ago was a discontinued Plantronics headset, but it
only
had the RJ headset plug for the phone side, which may or may not be able
to
be adapted. Also, I'd like something less expensive than that. I spoke
with
Plantronics the other day, and it appeared that what they may have had
has
been discontinued so long ago that it isn't in their system any more. The
guy told me that the only dual source headsets like that have to be
manually
switched between phone call and other source, which doesn't work if you
switch to read something and the person on the other end says something
you
missed. What are people doing to achieve this these days?
