phones with headsets

There are over 6 million small businesses in the UK and the vast majority rely on basic analogue phones with headsets rather than the more freature rich “digital or IP phone system PABX – IPBX)

At Headsets4business we specialise in phones with headsets for the small home office through to large businesses who have analogue ports on the system and choose to purchase analogue phones, usually because they are cheaper and incorporated into an existing phone system, they can have pretty much the same features but at a much lower cost.

What to look for if you require a business phone with a headset!

First of all, you need to know your own requirements of the phone and the headset, i.e. do you need a headset which is wired or wireless. If you are mainly at your desk, then choose wired, they are cheaper and provide quality sound clarity. If you are in and out of different rooms in your home office or small office and its really mission critical to answer the phone remotely, then choose a wireless headset with a lifter package. This is a simple device which sits under the receiver and lifts the receiver once you press the answer button on your wireless headset. Very simple and very affective. This helps productivity when you are out and about.

The phones on the other hand have usually 3 requirements, 1. display or none display. If you need to see who is calling (Caller ID) etc then choose display but if you are only using the basic phone and headset features (e.g. inbound and outbound telesales) then choose none display phones whic are cheaper.

All analogue business phones must have a dedicated headset port or headset jack if they are to serve you in the most effective way. You can have phones that dont have a dedicated headset port but the only way a headset will work on those, is to unplug the curly cord, discard it and plug the wired headset straight into the phones curly cord port. “Not ideal”

In summary:

to choose business phones with headsets, just think “wired or wireless” headset and “display or none display” phone and choose from our wide selection of phones with headset here

Headsets4business are the UK’s market leader in business analogue phones with headset packages offering a choice of wired and wireless headsets and quality business phones

Phone with headset -Choosing the right combination

Many small business / home business owners require a phone and headset combination to help them with the day to day running of the business. But where do you start?

The best way to work this out is to answer 3 simple questions:

1. Does my phone (telephone) need to be a display model or none display?
“basically if you are not bothered about identifying the caller (caller ID) and just want to make calls via the headset, then choose a basic none display phone with a good quality comfortable noise cancelling headset, if on the other hand, you need Caller ID and more features that use the display like date stamp, call timer, message waiting etc, then choose a display model as they come with a host of features especially designed for small business despite them being an analogue phone.

2. Do I need an answer machine built into the phone?
“this is really useful for small home businesses when you are out and sounds more professional than BT’s basic voice mail service

3. Do I need a wired or wireless headset?
“the benefits are different for different people really because its features and benefits versus the cost!, If you need to move away from your desk while on a call or even be able to answer a call remotely (lifter required or EHS, see * below) then I would recommend wireless. Its a total handsfree solution”

If you are based at your desk all day, then wired will be fine and you will save money as wireless, on the whole, are more expensive.

Wireless start at £166 to £280
Wired £59 – £128

*Lifter and EHS explained
A lifter is a small device that lifts your phones receiver and connects a call when you have a wireless headset on, EHS or “electronic hook switch” is found in predominantly high end IP phones which know there is a wireless headset attached and can let you answer the call remotely with out the use of a lifter but in 99% of cases, analogue phones need lifter for remote answering.
