elegant but it works.
I have a wired earphone that plugs into my computer and I place the
earbud in one ear. Then I have a Bluetooth headset connected too the
iPhone with the earbud in my other ear. I use it for listening to
music while I work, but it also works for phone calls.
As I said, not elegant but it works.

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?
