Polycom Headset Guide

Yealink Phones

The Yealink Desk phones feature an RJ-9 headset jack and are compatible with the wireless headset sold by Intermedia.

The Yealink Cordless phones use a 2.5 mm plug that connects to the side of the phone and are compatible with wireless headset sold by Intermedia.

Vertical Desk Phones

The Vertical Xcelerator system supports the use of optional third-party headsets.

The desk phone is designed to work with any amplified headset device. Amplified means it must include a powered box in between the phone and the headset. Amplified headsets are the typical business-phone headsets. These are connected using a special phone cable, called an RJ-9 connector, that looks similar to a standard analog phone cord, but with a smaller plug.

When using the headset,  press the headset button to get dial tone. Some headsets come with lift attachments, which lift the handset when the headset is turned on. These should not be installed on Vertical phones. If the handset is lifted, the phone will automatically turn off the headset.

Vertical RTX Cordless Phones

The cordless phone is designed to work with cordless/mobile phone headset devices. These devices use a 2.5 mm plug that connects to the side of the phone. Cordless phone headsets do not use an amplifier like the desk phones. These are often marketed for cell phones, but the same headset works for both.

Recommended Headsets

The headset should be amplified for desk phones, or using the 2.5 mm connection for cordless. For any further and deeper questions contact headset specialist. Two suggested companies that specialize in business-phone headset hardware are:
