COOL. Retro Handset headset for your Cell Phone.

UPDATE: 8/29/11
Here’s the problem with this device that you might not notice.  It has a 2.5mm adapter which is fine if you have an old Motorola feature phone with those super-thin headset jacks.  But if you have a modern smartphone like a Windows Phone 7 device, you likely have a 3.5mm adapter.

So not a big deal right?  Just get an adapter and be done with it, right?  Not so much.  This is more than just a headset:  It’s a headset with a microphone.  So you need to get an adapter with microphone connectivity specifically for cellphones.  Trust me – this is a little harder to find than you might think.  Radio Shack doesn’t sell them near as I can tell for example, much less Best Buy.

imageFortunately, I found a place that sells this and bought one… and yes, it works – I’ve tested it. 

Here it is, but be aware:  It’s $9 + $3.95 shipping = $12.95.

(CAREFUL!  You can easily select the wrong adapter.  Look for Universal 2.5mm and 3.5mm then select the 3.5mm Male to 2.5mm Female Stereo Adapter which should be about 4 items down)

    You’re a loser.

    And I’m jealous… I want an old-school, rotary dial phone for use in my Lync demos…
