Understanding Headset Terminology

 

Quick Disconnect: Out of the box this is the name of the cord that’s on your Polycom compatible headset that connects to the direct connect cable.

Direct Connect Cable: This cable connects from your Polycom headset to the headset port of your Polycom phone.

Electronic Hook Switch: Otherwise known as an EHS cable, this accessory connects from a wireless headset charging base to your Polycom phone. Allowing you to answer/end calls when away from your phone.

Handset Lifter: Like an EHS cable, a Handset Lifter also allows you to answer/end calls away from the phone, but physically picks up and hangs up your handset.
