Find me on:

I recently just read an infographic that talks about the increasing need for employees to have a noise cancelling telephone headset (loud office noise is a productivity killer. get the right headset).

Many companies are switching their work environment from having offices and cubicles, to open space working environments. With employees trying to focus on their phone calls and the background noise only getting louder, this has created the need to have a noise cancelling telephone headset to reduce distractions and focus on the caller.

The only problem is... you don't know what's compatible! There's only one true pair of headphones designed for your corded telephones that will fully enclose your ears.

This is a ruggedized headset that is built to be tough for the noisiest environments. In addition, the microphone reduces up to 80% of the noise in your background.

By now you should know this pair of headphone is the real deal for a noise cancelling telephone headset. If you want to see what the SHR2083-01 headphones looks like being worn, watch my quick video below. 0:58 seconds quick to be exact. 


Please read carefully! Before choosing this office headset, you will either need a direct connect cable or M22 amplifier. Out of the box this pair of headphones will not connect to anything. Depending on your telephone will depend if you need a direct connect cable or M22 amplifier. Contact us with the make and model of telephone you want to connect with and we can tell you for 100% certain what will work. 

Now you might be wondering what is a direct connect cord? Great question!

A direct connect cord is an accessory that connects your wired office headset to a telephone with a designated HEADSET port.

Keep in mind many of these direct connect cords look identical but they're wired differently in order to connect with a specific brand of telephone. Below is an image to reference.
