Re: dual source headsets, where to get?

Wow! The deal with the little cheap single ear earpieces is that the volume level on them is pretty quiet. It might be that the nearest talking ATM has low output when you turn it to high, but the 3 things together sounds like it would be uncomfortable.

It would be so great to have something like that. I remember back in the
90's, when I had three scissor head sets taped together, wore all of them -
one for Window Eyes, and the others for two machines from which I received
dictation for medical records.

Best from,

Carolyn

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.

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?
