A lot of customers looking for an amplified headset for their business telephone are doing so in response to a noisy work environment. However, the problem with using an amplified headset for this predicament is that the transmitter in the amplified headset also picks up the background noise, not just the voice on the other end of the phone. Not only does this not solve the problem, but it can make matters worse.
For people trying to hear better in loud areas, noise cancelling transmitters might be the best alternative. Most business telephones can have a noise cancelling transmitter added to them, which will reduce a large majority of the background noise.
If you have a phone model that isn’t compatible with a simple transmitter, than a volume control box might be a workable substitute. Most volume control boxes easily plug into the business phone’s handset jack and the handset cord plugs into it. It will function with most phones made these days.
Many of our clients will purchase an amplified AND noise cancelling handset. The gain of having both amplified and noise cancelling capabilities in a single handset is that the user can raise the receiver volume using their fingertips, without a need to return to the phone and adjust the volume.
