What do we recommend & Why?
Most Bluetooth headsets have not been designed to work well in a busy office environment. if its quiet where you are then they will be sufficient for your needs. In a normal working environment we thoroughly recommend a dedicated wired professional headset connected to the headset jack or USB port on the back of the phone or a Professional DECT “not” Bluetooth wireless headset, especially if call quality is important to you.
Caveat to all the above:
If you are set on a Bluetooth headset for your 8800 series phone then there are professional ANC or “active noise cancelling” Bluetooth headsets which we can and do recommend …see all our ANC headsets here:
Wireless Headsets for Cisco Phones – all models
(Note* these are DECT wireless not Bluetooth)
Remote Answering for Cisco 8800 Series desk phones
Remote answering using EHS (some models) or Handset lifters (most models) is available for all Cisco models. EHS stands for “electronic hook switch”, the ability to answer a call via your wireless headset when away from your desk.
The products to provide this are optional extras. Please use the headset finder above to ensure you get the correct wireless headset for your Cisco 8800 IP phone. These compatible cordless / wireless headsets are available in both Monaural and Binaural versions (some wireless models only)

Top FAQ’s on 8800 IP phone Headsets
What’s the best wireless headset for Cisco 8851 IP phone?
I would recommend the Sennheiser / EPOS DW Office with an EHS lead for remote answering.
It offers amazing call quality, great noise cancelling and is a tried and tested headset on any 8800 series IP phone but especially the popular Cisco 8851 IP model
Should I choose a wired or wireless headset for my Snom IP phone?
Its a personal choice but if you are away from your desk a lot and are staying in the room, then definitely go for a Snom compatible wireless headset. If this isnt the case and you are looking at saving money then go for the snom compatible wired headsets recommended on this page
Is the Cisco 8851 EHS compatible?
A: Yes, I would recommend the Sennheiser / EPOS DW Pro1 or Pro2 wireless headset with a CEHS-CI 02 electronic hook switch for remote answering
Some Cisco 8800 IP phones have 3 ways to connect a headset, which is best?
A: Thats correct they are USB, standard square headset jack & bluetooth – Based on our wide experience of these Cisco IP phones, I would recommend:
For wireless – Go with DECT wireless like DW Office or DW Pro ( both on this page) as its a much better quality option than bluetooth
For Wired: – Go with either USB or standard headset jack, as a personal preference I would be happy with either. On the USB, choose – the Sennheiser / EPOS SC 135 & Sennheiser / EPOS Sc 160 USB noise cancelling headset (see both these headsets above)
