A cordless headset is a headphone combined with a microphoneand earpiece that is wirelessly connected to a telephone system. Cordless headsets are typically used in telephone-intensive environments such as enterprises, call centers and even homes. In addition to providing the same functionality as a telephone handset, the cordless headset enables a hands-free environment so that users can carry out other tasks and be fully mobile while on the phone. Due to such advantages, cordless headsets are fast becoming a popular trend within both business and consumer communications markets.
A cordless headset operates and communicates with the cordless base station via either a DECT (RF band of 1.7GHz-1.9GHz) or WDCT 2.4GHz protocol.
