Although most of my correspondence is via email, I do receive a significant number of calls on my toll free line. And frankly, I'm getting tired of cradling the headset on my shoulder.

Do any of you have a (wireless) headset? If so, what brand/model would you recommend? I think it's time to move up to a headset but there are so many out there, I'd appreciate some real life experience.

Vito,

I know what you mean. I had to get one but I didnt get a wireless model. I have a business phone that allows you to plug in a headset.

I went with this headset:
http://www.plantronics.com/north_ame...57/prod4940003

But if you are looking, anything from Plantronics is going to be top quality.

Thanks, Chris. I'll take a look. Hopefully they have a wireless model. I really don't want to be restricted to 4/6/8 feet of the phone.

In regard to wireless headsets, I recommend Motorola. When I get to the office tomorrow, I'll be able to get you the model, etc. They sent us one free for testing, and by far it had the most clerity, and transmission distance I've seen in a long time.

Currently however, our techs use Coby headsets that plug directly into the sound card on their workstation PCs. The headset requires software, that comes with the set, but allows you to answer the calls with a push of a button on the screen.

This spring I'm planning to upgrade my cell phone, I want to get a wireless handset at that time too. Business calls are handled on my cell phone, it's with me at all times, and I went through Verizon so if for some odd reason I'm in Alaska I'll be in my home area and be able to answer calls. Don't have enough clients to where more than myself and significant other can't handle the support.

Aren't ALL cellphones wireless HANDsets?

Just messing around man, we know what you meant.

I resent just now, let me know if you don't get it.

Question: Does a cell phone REQUIRE bluetooth for the wireless EAR PIECES?

Rats. It looks like everywhere I look, that unit is either discontinued or out of stock.

Looks like it's got everything I'm looking for, Chris. Thanks for the link. I will likely order it today (unless something better comes along in the next few hours).
