Note: A loud bell requires an analog line.

Each phone model has a dedicated headset port, this eliminates the need for a separate amplifier when using a headset. The handset remains in its cradle making the headset simpler to use. Both the 7940 and 7960 models have a convenient volume control button that provides for easy decibel-level adjustments for the speakerphone, handset, headset, and ringer. A headset adaptor is required for each headset to allow connectivity to the phone.

Wireless Headsets

Wireless headsets are compatible with the 7940 and 7960 phone models. A wireless headset does not use the headset port, but rather a direct connection to the phone's handset. Please refer to the documentation provided with the unit or call extension 58888 for assistance. When ordering a wireless headset a separate adaptor is not required. This adaptor is included with the unit .

More than ten headsets are not recommended in a common area. Some office areas may not be conducive to wireless headset use as the physical building environment may reduce the signaling quality.

Handset Shoulder Rest

It is not recommended to purchase shoulder rests for the new phones due to ergonomic reasons such as, awkward posturing of the head, neck and shoulders. An alternative to using a shoulder rest would be a speakerphone or wireless headset. The standard new phone includes a premium speakerphone allowing users to communicate in a 2-way conversation. Another option is to use a wireless headset which avoids awkward and prolonged static postures and offers more flexibility to move around.

In situations where a handset shoulder rest is required, it should be attached directly to the handset with the use of double sided tape. This tape is included with your purchase of a handset shoulder rest.
