G-Style Handset with Screw-on Caps

G-Style

It used to be simple...

The first handset on modern phones was the G-Style, on the left. It was rounded at the ends, and had screw-on caps. It fit the hand well and sounded great.

It's still used on pay phones, and anywhere you need a rugged handset that will stand-up to abuse.

The next handset on modern phones was the K-Style, on the right. It was more squared off, but it still fit the hand well - and sounds great.

K-Style Handset

K-Style

Even though handsets look the same on many brands of phones, the insides of the handsets are often different. The receivers are normally similar, but the transmitters (microphones) can be different (even for the exact same model of phone, depending on when it was made). Most manufacturers follow an industry standard for the wiring to the modular jack in the handset (which wires go to the transmitter and receiver), but some don't - most noticeably GE and RCA brand single line and multi-line KSU-less phones (which are really strange).

If we don't have a special handset for your particular system, we may be able
to add Noise Cancelling, Amplification,
Push-to-Mute and
Push-to-Talk to
your handset!

And so many more that we need a computer program to figure out which one you need...

Our Handset Lookup Program tells us how to make your handset. Without our custom software, there's no way to manufacture handsets!

We currently have over 1500 makes and models of business telephones listed.  When you call us, we ask you the make and model, and we look for it in the program - which tells us the type of shell to use, the type of transmitter and receiver, the type of amplifier for an amplified handset, and the color. We don't always need the exact make and model, since we can search for any part of a word or model number to find your handset. As you can see in the screen shot (above), we have over 200 listings for Avaya / Lucent / AT&T phones alone!

We put that information on your order, which then goes to production. It usually ships in a day or two.

We manufacture and test your handset to order right in our shop, and usually ship the same day you call!

After we manufacture your handset, it's tested on a phone for that particular type of handset, using a real live human's ear!  We have quite a few test systems in our shop, so we can test every handset we make.

We have amplified, noise cancelling, PTT, PTM and replacement handsets for most of the phones made by most phone system manufacturers:

  • AT&T / Lucent / Avaya / G3 / Definity / Partner / Merlin
  • Northern Telecom / NT / Nortel / Norstar / Meridian
  • Toshiba
  • Panasonic
  • ESI / Estech
  • Samsung
  • NEC / Nitsuko / TIE
  • Vodavi / Vertical
  • Comdial / Stromberg Carlson
  • ITT / Cortelco
  • Atlas / Key System US
  • Inter-tel / Mitel
  • ...and LOTS more!

In-Line Handset Amplifier

If we can't make an Amplified Handset for your phone, our In-Line Handset Amplifier uses the same circuit we put in our Amplified Handsets, and works on any phone with a dial in the base (won't work on Trimline type phones), and any brand other than RCA and GE (which don't conform to any standards).

Just slide the volume control up and down to change the volume...


In-Line Handset Amplifier

Includes 9V Battery that lasts around a year

sandman.com 30 Day Moneyback Guarantee

Part Number: XMT9A   $27.95

 

With AC Power Cube (doesn't need a battery, but you need an outlet near the desk)

sandman.com 30 Day Moneyback Guarantee

Part Number: XMT9C   $35.95


It takes under a minute to plug into just about any phone...

Just unplug the handset cord, plug the In-Line Amplifier back into that jack, and plug the handset cord into the other side of the In-Line Amplifier. Move the convenient slide volume control to adjust the volume (it raises the volume by 18db).

NOTE: This Amplifier works.  Others we found don't.  Callers constantly tell us that they've tried amplifiers from electronics or drug stores, but they sound terrible or don't work at all.

This device works on business and VoIP type phones, but not on dial-in-the-handset (Trimiline) type phones, not on cordless or cellular phones, and not RCA and GE brand phones.


If you're looking for an amplified handset for someone who wears a hearing aidCLICK HERE to read our Hearing Aid Compatibility Technical Bulletin.

Sometimes they need to operate an automatic T/M (Telecoil / Microphone) switch, as well as have amplification which will also increase the magnetic output of the handset. Some of the receivers in modern handsets don't have enough magnetic output to activate the reed relay in the hearing aid, which automatically turns-on the telephone pickup in the hearing aid (instead of having to throw a T/M switch manually).


In-Line Handset Amplifier with Equalizer (Tone Control)

For someone with a severe hearing loss, use our In-Line Handset Amplifier with Equalizer (Tone Control):

 

 


In-Line Handset Amplifier with Equalizer (Tone Control)

Includes AC Power Cube (you need an outlet near the desk)

Comes with sandman.com 30 Day Moneyback Guarantee

Part Number: PAP1B   $152.95

 

 

 

This has a lot of amplification, and there are six sliders to adjust the sound of the caller in your ear. If you have a hard time hearing certain frequencies, or a call sounds too tinny, you can boost or reduce the low or high frequencies as needed.

This device works on business and VoIP type phones, but not on dial-in-the-handset (Trimiline) type phones, not on cordless or cellular phones, and not RCA and GE brand phones.
 


In-Line Handset Microphone (Transmitter) Amplifier

For someone with who has trouble being heard from throat surgery or a quiet voice, use our In-Line Handset Microphone Amplifier:

 


 

 

In-Line Handset Mic Amplifier

Includes AC Power Cube (you need an outlet near the desk)

Comes with sandman.com 30 Day Moneyback Guarantee

Part Number: PAP1C   $103.95

Only works on handsets with
Carbon or Electret transmitters

 



This amplifies the microphone a lot!  Slide volume control adjusts the transmit level (not the receive level).

This device works on business and VoIP type phones, but not on dial-in-the-handset (Trimiline) type phones, not on cordless or cellular phones, and not RCA and GE brand phones.


A lot of people think you need an amplified handset  in a noisy area.  NOT TRUE!

If you turn up the volume on an amplified handset in a noisy area, you bring up the voice on the other end of the call, but you also bring up the background noise - which makes it just as hard to hear when the volume is turned up.  When you add a noise cancelling transmitter to an amplified handset, you're reducing background noise and increasing the volume of the person on the other end - so you'll be able to hear just fine.

Most modern phones have a handset volume control built-in to the phone. Sometimes they're not very loud, but in some cases by using a noise cancelling handset without an amplifier built-in, you can hear just fine. One benefit of an amplified handset with a volume control wheel is that it's easier for the user to adjust, without having to look down at the phone. In some cases, every time you hang-up the phone the volume returns to normal, which makes an amplified handset with the volume control wheel more than a luxury.

All of our noise cancelling handsets have a small port (hole), which brings the ambient noise to the rear of the microphone. If you block the port, the handset will no longer be noise cancelling, and will work just like a regular handset. We place the port in our handsets in a place where it would be very difficult to cover it with your hand.

Most of the noise cancelling handsets we make include a small volume control for the microphone that can be adjusted by a technician with a very small screwdriver. This lets the technician lower or raise the volume of the microphone depending on the particular phone, the user's voice, and the background noise. It's also been used to lower the volume so a "coach" sitting next to the employee can't be heard by the prospect on the phone.

Noise Cancelling Microphone Theory Noise Cancelling Handsets
are used in areas with lots of background noise like factories or restaurants, or in areas where when you page from a phone you hear feedback - because that phone is near a paging horn or speaker.

The Noise Cancelling Transmitter is a very unique and sophisticated device. That type of microphone has openings in both the front (like all mics), as well as the back.

Since ambient noise enters the mic from both the front and rear, the same pressure is on both the front and rear of the diaphragm. Because the ambient noise doesn't make the diaphragm vibrate, the ambient noise isn't heard.

Since speech is entering from just the front of the mic, the diaphragm vibrates from just the speech... Cancelling out the noise.

With a noise cancelling handset (or headset), you must speak directly into the mic - you can't hold it under your chin and expect to be heard by the other party.

 

 


 

On the left is a Noise Cancelling mic in a typical  handset with the Port to the rear of the mic, and the volume control (POT) to lower the mic level for the particular environment.


The Volume Control Box plugs in where the handset cord plugs into the phone, and the handset cord plugs into the Box.

Use a small screwdriver to adjust the volume of the mic to suit your applications.

Part Number: PAP4A   $24.95



So what if we can't make a noise cancelling handset for your particular phone or system?


There is no way to make an external box that's noise cancelling since you need to use a microphone ported from the back.

But, we have a Modular External Electret Volume Control Box that you can use to turn the mic gain down in the handset.

We've found that it reduces the background noise by about half, which reduces the voice about a quarter when the mic is turned down.

If it's noisy the person on the phone is generally going to speak louder anyway, so this is pretty effective against noise when you don't have another choice, and you have an electret transmitter in the phone's handset.

May also be useful in reducing paging feedback.


Small 7-in-1 Pocket Screw Driver

  • Rugged Aluminum Pen-Style Housing with Pocket Clip
    and Knurled Finger Grip

The volume control wheel reduces the volume of the receiver in the handset below the phone's lowest setting. It doesn't amplify.

It's a Different World!

There are a lot of really strange shaped handsets out there.  Some of them don't sound great, or they don't feel great in the hand. But most of them look pretty cool.  In many cases the ear and mouth part are essentially the same size and shape as the K-Style handset which Bell Labs spent a ton of time and money coming up with (which is based on the original G-Style handset). In some cases the entire shape is very strange, and there was no engineering involved - just a "designer" (who would never have to use the phone himself anyway).

Because the human ear and mouth haven't changed recently, it makes sense for modern telephone manufacturers to keep the K-Style size, angle and placement of the parts that go up against your head. The size and shape of the concave (indented) part of the receiver on the handset is critical to the sound of the handset, as is the acoustic seal of both the transmitter and receiver inside the handset.

If you don't like the handset for a particular phone, we can check our Handset Lookup Program, which might tell us if there's an equivalent handset that will look a little different, work well, and hang-up properly on the phone.

Many "modern" handsets are so small, thin, or have such an odd shape that we can't get an amplifier board in them, or put a noise cancelling transmitter in them. If you just need an amplified handset our In-Line Handset Amplifier should work fine (it has the same amplifier circuit in it that we put in our handsets). If it's a noisy area, you really need a noise cancelling handset. There are no external devices that will do that (except a headset with a noise cancelling transmitter). In some cases, you can put in an older model phone that we can make a noise cancelling handset for.

Sorry, but we can't list the cost of each of the 1500+ makes, models and combinations of handsets we can make here on our web site. Call us so we can look up the handset and put the individual combination of parts on the order (which tells us your cost).

Because there are so many types of handsets, we only build and test the most popular variations in advance. To make your handset, we pick each of the items listed on your order, and assemble them for that particular type of handset right after you call.  Nobody could afford to stock all of these different types of handsets in every configuration... But we're experts at this since we've been building handsets to order since 1993.

  • Know when your co-workers are on the phone!

  • Both the Light and Amplifier work on ANY business phone with a dial in the base
       and where you can hear yourself in your ear when you talk (has sidetone), except RCA and GE

  • Use on a Cubical, on Top of a Monitor or ???

  • Works equally well with Handsets or Headsets with Amplifiers (it's really nice to raise
       the level on the headset amp sometimes!)

  • Connects In-Series with Headset Amplifier or Handset

  • Easy-to-Use Slide Volume Control

  • Comes with Easy-to-See BIG Bright Red LED

  • Requires a 110V AC outlet near the desk for the power cube (included)
     

NOTE: The Headset In-Use Indicator only works with a handset or headset with modular handset type plugs. It won't work on Cordless or Cellular type phones with a 3.5mm or 2.5mm jack.


RECORDING / PLAYBACK & IN-USE HEADSET ADAPTER








Recording & In-Use Headset Adapter





Even though the Modular Headset Jack on some business phones looks like a handset jack, it's NOT!  It's physically the same jack, but it's wired differently so you can't plug a handset into that jack (you can, but it won't work).

That means that you can't use any accessories made to be used with a handset, because the wires aren't in the right place.

Our Recording / Playback & In-Use Adapter plugs into the jack for the headset. You then plug your headset into the jack labeled for the Headset Only. The other jack is wired to like a regular handset jack. That allows you to use accessories made to be used with a handset.

Note that the real handset for that phone probably won't work correctly on our adapter because besides the wiring change, there may be a polarity and gain difference on the headset transmitter circuit. But it will work well for recording while on a headset on the phone, sending audio from a PC back into the phone while the user is on their headset, and for our Orator III which gives you an amplifier and speaker so others in the room can hear the same conversation while you're on your headset (or handset, or even on a regular analog phone line).

Adapter lets you:

  • Use our Headset In-Use Indicator on a Headset without an amplifier  

  • Record conversations using our Deluxe Handset Recording Adapter from a headset without a headset amplifier (plugged directly into a modular headset jack on a phone).  

  • Playback music or audio using our Handset Audio Feeder into a headset without a headset amplifier (plugged directly into a modular headset jack on a phone).  

  • Connect our Orator III Speaker to a headset jack to the conversation can be heard by others in the room

ORATOR III DESKTOP SPEAKER / AMPLIFIER

Orator III

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orator III Desktop Monitor Speaker / Amplifier

Nice Loud Speaker with Volume Control


The Orator III has a modular cord that plugs into a phone line and lets you monitor conversations on the line - without disturbing either party talking on the line.

There are no clicks, no pops, nobody on the line can tell you're listening.

Modular cord plugs into an analog phone line. There's a jack on the Orator III to plug in a phone (not needed if you don't want to talk or dial).

The Orator III presents a high impedance to the line so it won't take the line off-hook. One-way speaker (not a speakerphone) will broadcast the entire conversation (all parties on the line) through the speaker.

A very nice general use desktop amplifier, with a zillion uses!

  • Monitor a phone line with the Orator III from any office in the building, without disturbing the line itself.

  • Put the Orator III next to a business phone system phone, and monitor everything that's being said (requires Orator Handset Adapter, below).

  • Broadcast a conference call over the Orator III in a conference room where you don't want to use a speakerphone, or the speakerphone speaker isn't loud enough.

  • Broadcast a conference call in multiple conference rooms or offices.

  • Listen to the actual conversation on emergency fire and rescue calls coming into a Fire Station, in one or multiple rooms.

Great for training!

If you're speaking on a phone in the same room face the Orator III away from you so you won't get feedback.

Comes with a 7' Modular mounting cord for a regular analog phone line, and a 110VAC Power Cube.

To connect it to the handset of an electronic phone, see the Orator Handset Kit (below).

Repairing Handsets...

If you need to repair a handset, if you can open it we probably have the parts to fix it. Worst case, you'll need a receiver, transmitter and modular jack. It's unlikely all three will be bad. Unfortunately, many phone system manufacturers sonically weld or glue their handsets together, or snap them together with many little fingers that can't be released after they're closed - making them un-repairable.

It's unlikely we would have replacement handsets or know anything about the multitude of consumer phones out there. While some of these consumer phones are so cheap it would make more sense to buy another phone than repair the handset, some of the multi-line consumer phones (KSU-less) are incredibly expensive, but you can't get replacement handsets from the manufacturer.

It's doubtful we would have a handset for consumer phones since they're often highly stylized to make them appeal to a consumer (they're an odd shape and size, compared to a business phone handset). The manufacturer often makes it impossible to get these phones repaired. They usually change the design of the phone yearly, so you may not be able to buy compatible phones in the future.

One of the problems matching another brand of handset to a particular phone is that the little recess for the wall phone hang-up hook is often in a different place. That means that we may have a handset that will work for a desk phone, but our listing may say that it won't work with a wall phone (because the little flip-around hook won't catch the recess under the receiver on the handset).
 



Kiosk, Pay Phone, Intercom, 911 Center and Prison Handsets...

We can make nearly any handset imaginable, but you'll have to tell us what your needs are. We can design and make a prototype in as little as a day...

Like our other handsets, these aren't pre-made.  When you tell us what you need we build the handset in our POS system, which tells us what your cost is. Since every kiosk is different, you need to tell us how you intend to connect the handset to the kiosk.

We can put armored cords on G-Style, K-Style, Euro1, T-Style and M-Style handsets if you'd like a more modern look - BUT if you need a hookswitch you need to make sure that type of handset will work in your application.

Our Cup Style Hookswitch is available with either mechanical or magnetic contacts (magnetic has no moving parts), and with an optional clip to hold the handset down into the cup - particularly useful on buses, trains and planes, or anywhere you need to make sure the handset is hung up properly by the user.

For special applications, we can make a handset with a 6 wire modular jack (instead of 4 conductors), and we have black 6 conductor coiled or armored cords.

We can make any kind of special handset, and we do it quickly from design to delivery:

  • To connect to a network inside the a kiosk using four wires: 2 for transmit, and 2 for receive

  • For a network that used an Electret, Carbon or Dynamic transmitter (you have to tell us!)

  • With a network inside the handset so it can be plugged directly into a modem or phone line

  • With 3.5mm audio plugs to connect to a sound card on a PC in the kiosk

  • With 4 spade lugs

  • With a 4 pin modular plug

  • With 6 spade lugs

  • With a 6 Pin modular plug for Push-to-Operate

  • With a coiled cord

  • With an armored cord of nearly any length (standard lengths are stocked)

  • With buttons (PTT, PTM, PTO) in several locations

  • With volume control wheels in several locations - with or without an amplifier or network

  • With double prong operator plugs

  • With tilt switches that turn off the transmitter in the handset when it's set down
    (to prevent voice loggers from recording conversations in the room)

Most prototypes are made in as little as a day.  We stock almost everything you can think of!

Most of our Handsets are assembled right here in our shop, in the Chicago Area.

We purchase as much as we can from US vendors, but there are just some things that aren't made in the USA any more.
