Help? Plantronics Calisto Pro from eBay not the correct phone socket

June 26th, 2009 No comments

Q: I already bought a Plantronics Calisto Pro on eBay to use at the office – simply for hands-free conversation because we are dispatchers who have to constantly refer to crew guides and keep track of events in logs. I have been trying to connect the work phone handset coil cord (smaller) jack to the Calisto base’s (standard) phone socket, but although it does click into place it appears there is no contact being made.

Do you know if there is an adapter available anywhere to make this connection? In both cases only the two middle contacts are installed in the plug/socket, so either a solid adapter unit or a (1 foot) patch cord with a female handset socket and a male standard phone jack would seem to be the solution.

A: Unfortunately, a problem we run into regularly with online auctions is their inability to explain products.  There is no way to connect a handset to the CalistoPro.  It’s basically a single line cordless telephone that connects to a Bluetooth wireless headset and your PC for expanded communication capabilities. The modular connection on the base is just for the telephone line. With a splitter you can add a phone with a corded handset to use along with the Calisto Pro.

We recently began selling a very unique headset solution for people in a home office environment. We’ve been testing it around our office (we play with every new product extensively so we know how to recommend it) and it’s pretty impressive. Bottom line: it offers a combination of three things no other quality headset offers. One, wireless connection to your landline. Two, it pairs (Bluetooth) with your cell phone. And three, you can take VoIP calls on your computer.

The headset is commercial grade, lightweight, offers noise canceling and our testers tell me it’s comfortable enough to wear all day. You have a small remote keypad to carry or clip to your belt which has caller ID and all of your typical phone functions (plus you can save 200 of your Outlook contacts to the unit). It also has a decent speakerphone when you don’t want to use the handset. When using the unit with your computer, VoIP applications work great, however, you are not able to use the headset in place of your computer microphone and speakers for standard computer use and music listening. By using one headset for three different modes of communication you can simplify devices and eliminate extra charging all with one unit.
