Below are compatible headsets for the following Avaya models. IP 1608, 1616, 9608, 9610, 9611, 9611G, 9620, 9620C, 9620L, 9621, 9630, 9630G, 9640, 9640G, 9641, 9641G, 9650, 9650G, 9650C, 9670.
Let’s start with the basics, corded vs. wireless headsets. Corded headsets are compatible with just about any desk phone that has a corded handset/headset jack. They plug into either a bottom cable or an amplifier. Buying a headset by itself will not function without a bottom cable or amplifier. Wireless headset systems plug into the base of your phone and the wireless base unit transmits the signal to the wireless headset up to 300-325ft (depending on your surroundings.) They transmit via DECT 6.0 (1.9Ghz) so there won’t be any interference with Bluetooth or Wi-Fi devices. If your job doesn’t require a lot of movement away from your desk, a corded headset is a great option. If you would like more freedom, and the ability to answer and end calls away from your desk, wireless is the way to go. Both options offer comfort, hands free communication, and noise canceling microphones. Let’s begin with a few recommended corded headsets.
