How to make my bluetooth hearing aid pendant work with my corded office phone

Do you have a bluetooth hearing aid with pendant and want to get it to work with your corded office desk telephone (which is non-bluetooth, of course)? Now you can do that easily without a huge expense. Simply order the Plantronics MDA200 USB adapter which would plug into your computer. Then add the Plantronics SSP2714-01 Bluetooth Adapter, which plugs into the MDA200. Connect the telephone cord from the MDA200 into your desk telephone (either into the handset receiver port or into the dedicated RJ9 headset port, if your phone has one). That’s all there is to it!

This will allow you to use your hearing aid with your computer (if you listen to music or use Skype, etc.), with your desk phone and with your cell phone (simply pair it by bluetooth).

If you want to be able to answer a call on your desk phone while away from your desk, you will need to get either the HL10 handset lifter or an EHS cord (depending on the brand/model of your desk phone). If you do opt for either of these, you will also need to get an optional AC charger (see below).

Here are the links to the MDA200 and the SSP2714-01:

Programming a headset button on a Mitel SuperSet 4025, 4015 phone:

If you have a Mitel SuperSet 4025 o4 4015 SuperSet phone and you’re trying to connect a headset to it and having not luck, the answer is that you have to use your SuperKey to set up a softkey to be your headset button. This new button that you create will be what you press to answer and end a call on the headset. It’s pretty simple. Too bad Mitel doesn’t make it easy and just have a headset button set up on the phone from the start. Here are the instructions to program the SuperSet for headset use:

Press Superkey
Press NO until you see: Personal Keys? (3rd one on the list)
Press YES
Select A Key – press a key on phone that is not in use
Press: Change
Press NO until you see: Headset? (I think it’s 15th or more on the list)
Press YES
You’re done.

The key that you select for the headset key must be lit when using the headset. Also, the headset connection plug is on the back of the phone.

Hope this helps! If you need to order headsets for your Mitel phone, give us a call at (800)333-0020 or visit by clicking here: Plantronics Headsets at Founders Telecom
