Choosing a Cisco IP phone headset that is compatible can sometimes be confusing with all the choices of headsets available. Whether you need a wired headset or wireless headset for your office, below is the Cisco phone models that Discover headsets are 100% compatible with. 







Keep in mind, if you choose a wireless headset and you want the wireless freedom to answer/end calls from your headset, you'll need the DHL110 Handset Lifer or EHS cable depending on your phone.

In addition, if you choose a wired headset for your Cisco IP phone, you'll either need a headset amplifier or direct connect cable.

Now that you know the compatible Cisco IP Phones, you'll want to choose a wired or wireless headset option and you need to be aware of the accessories required.

Out of the box your Discover wireless headset will work with your Cisco IP Phone.

If you want the wireless freedom to answer calls while walking around and multi tasking in your office, one of these accessories is highly recommended!
