I'm after some advice from some of the telecommunications experts around here.

I want a headset for my landline phone that is cheap/economical.  This is my setup:

I have a VTech cordless phone attached to my Orcon Genius router.  It has a second handset in another room.  It is that other room (where the Genius is not present) that I want to hook up some sort of headset.  The phone itself has no port to connect a headset directly too.

One obvious answer is to replace the phones with ones that a headset can be connected to.  But are there any options available if I were to keep the existing phones?

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

If there is no headset port on the phones then yes you will have to replace them if you want one

You can probably get a headset that plugs into the handset socket (if this is a desk phone)

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
