Which wireless headset is compatible with my Nortel Meridian Phone (Plantronics - Jabra)?
Believe it or not you can use a wireless headset (Plantronics or Jabra) with the Nortel Meridian phone. The trick is to know the accessories required for proper usage. For example, if you want to answer calls directly from the headset you'll need to add the Remote Answering accessory to your order. Without the Remote Answering accessory you'll need to pickup all calls manually from the phone first and also hangup manually from the phone. There are various wireless headsets that can be used with your Meridian phone. We offer several types that will meet a variety of requirements (high usage, noise-canceling, durability, teaming, coaching, multi-use, etc). Below is a sample of the most popular headsets that are compatible.
Popular wireless headsets for Nortel phones:
|Plantronics Legend CS||Plantronics CS540||Jabra Motion Office||Jabra 920 PRO|
1) Meridian 3000 series: When using wireless headsets we recommend the Jabra models especially if you plan to use the Remote Lifter accessory. The round speakerphone can be somewhat tricky to apply the Remote Lifter accessory to the phone but we have found that other users can make the accessory work by extending boom arm.
2) Meridian Console: The Remote Lifter will not work with the Console. You will need to use a 2-Prong adapter to connect the wireless headset.
3) Remote Lifters: Plantronics Remote Lifter is the HL10 and for Jabra it is the GN1000.
