Plantronics HIS Direct Cable – 72442-41


Compatible with: Specific Avaya Telephones

Understanding Direct Connect Cables vs. Amplifiers:

When using any H-series headset, a Direct Connect Cable or amplifier is required to plug in between your headset and phone.  Using a Direct Connect Cable will save you money versus an amplifier, but an amplifier will provide optimum sound quality and volume controls.

Direct Connect Cable:
Less expensive
Easy to install into headset port
Takes up virtually no desk space
Limited to use with compatible phones only (Your future phone may not be compatible and require an amplifier)

Amplifier:(Plantronics M22)
Compatible with most phones
Battery or AC powered to provide optimal sound quality
Speaker volume adjustment
Microphone volume adjustment (Key point that Direct Connect Cable doesn’t have)
Lifting handset with each call may be required, depending on your phone

    After purchasing from two other places and not getting the correct cable two times, I tried Headsets Direct. I received the correct cable the first time. They made sure the cable was correct, and they even saved me on shipping by getting it to me sooner with a cheaper shipping option based on my proximity to their location. Great Job!! Very Happy.

    I was in need of a headset and seen other sites and online chatted with a few of there reps. And was a bit confused with which one would fit my needs. I found your website and was it was nice that you have a video showing your different selections with an explanation of there uses. So I called and was very, very surprised that I actually got to talk to the rep from your video. He was very, very helpful and assured me that the Plantronics SupraPlus HW261N Headset with HIS Direct Cable – 72442-41 would fit my needs……Thank you so much!!!
