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?
