Hint

Not all cell phone headsets made equally. Some provide better quality sound, some are not. And paying more does not necessary mean that you are getting better headset. Sometimes manufacturers include proprietary electronics inside (for example, to cancel echo), which may conflict with your office phone. In general, rule of thumb is - simpler is your headset - better it works.
