In this blog we will be looking at how to adapt a wireless headset to work with a computer via the USB plug. Many of the models of headsets (Plantronics CS500 series, Jabra Pro 920, etc.) are created to work with an office phone and not a computer. Today, we will be looking at how to adapt a standard wireless headset to be used with a computer and office phone simultaneously!
The simplest solution to this problem is purchasing a Zoomswitch designed for this purpose. The cheaper method involves purchasing the Zoomswitch ZMS10 (pictured below).
This Zoomswitch is an add-on device that can enable your headset to work with a computer. It also has a button conveniently placed to make switching between your phone and your computer a breeze! When you purchase this unit, it comes with everything you will need in order to hook up a standard wireless headset to your computer!
The other Zoomswitch that can be used for this purpose is the ZMS20 (pictured below)
This model (ZMS20) has all of the same functionality and features as the ZMS10, with a few bonus features included. This model enables you greater control over the audio of your device. This model includes a built in amplifier for the USB side of the device. This enables greater control of the audio when speaking through the computer. Another feature it offers is a mute switch for both the phone and computer applications. This means it is really easy to switch between devices, adjust the volume, or mute your headset with the simple press of a button!
