Do Cisco IP Phone 7942 come with head phone or which third party head is best to use with 7942 IP Phone

Correct Answer by Rob Huffman about 7 years 9 months ago

Hi Bala,


The phones do not come with Headsets sadly. We use many Plantronics corded models like the H-91, H-101, **H-171's. The one part you will need which is required for all "corded" Plantronics Headsets (to go from Headset Jack on 7970 to "Quick Disconnect" on Headset) is a special Cord (shown below);


Part#Amp-26716-01


If these are Cordless Headsets we like the CS-55 or CS-70 Series


Look in this section for a complete list;


Find My Headset (choose Cisco and IP Phone Model)

You may want to look at a great new method of using Wireless Headsets that Plantronics and Cisco have developed that work with the 7942/7945, 7962/7965 and 7975 IP Phones only so far. The Plantronics HHC adapter enables hookswitch control and ***ring detection for CS50, CS55, CS60, CS70, CS70N, CS351N, CS361N and V510S wireless headsets, eliminating the need for a an HL10 lifter.)


With the use of an Adaptor Part # APC-4 (called the HHC Adaptor) which plugs into the Aux Port on the base of the phone allows calls to be answered and disconnected via the Headset without the use of the Lifter!


You can't believe how well this new setup works :)

As described in the data sheet, it does not come with head phones. You have to buy your own. The most popular brand is Plantronics.

Hi Bala,


I can confirm that the H-91 will work with the 7942 :) We have at least 50 of these in service. Here is the Plantronics Compatability check verification;


H91N Encore Monaural Noise-Canceling Headset with 7942G

We've checked our records and your Cisco phone is compatible with the H91N Encore Monaural Noise-Canceling Headset!

The one part you will need which is required for all "corded" Plantronics Headsets (to go from Headset Jack on 7942G to "Quick Disconnect" on Headset) is a special Cord (shown below);


Part#Amp-26716-01


Plantronics "corded" headsets will NOT work without this cord (Part#Amp-26716-01).



Hope this helps!
