Wireless Y-Adapter - General Setup and Functionality

Wireless Y Training Adapter - General Setup & Functionality CAT #1070

NOTE: With direct-connect compatible phones (e.g. Nortel, NEC, Mitel, Comdial models), some disconnect cords may allow for “listen only” without an amp, but will not provide outgoing microphone audio.

Customers may also utilize their corded handset in conjunction with a headset if they so desire.

In the box:

The Wireless Y-Adapter comes with a cord that allows you to connect it to the amplifier or telephone. The adapter can be used with any combination of Telephone Handset Sennheiser, Plantronics, Executive Pro and GN Netcom headsets.

Step 1:

Connect the short black cord from the jack labeled “TEL” on the Wireless Adapter into the handset or headset jack on the telephone.

Step 2:

Connect the wireless/corded units into the A & B jacks (non-specific) on the front of the Wireless Adapter.

Step 3:

Adjust the compatibility switch between 1 / 2 on the back of the Wireless Adapter next to the “TEL” jack depending on the following specific setups:

Note: Pictures at bottom of article for Sennheiser setup.

Use The “1” Setting:

When headset amplifier is plugged into the phone’s handset or headset jack.

The adapter will plug into the amplifier’s headset jack. Two corded headsets will then plug into the adapter in the A & B jacks.

Recommended for Corded headsets

Use The “2” Setting:

When the training adapter is plugged into the handset jack or headset jack of the phone.

Two complete headset systems will plug into the adapter’s A & B jacks.

Recommended for Wireless Headsets


If there’s no sound in one or both headsets, remember to try the headset’s different compat settings

Mute Function:

You can mute the outgoing volume of either headset (or both) by pressing down the A or B buttons on the top of the adapter depending on which one you wish to mute. Both parties will still be able to hear; the party that is not muted will be able to speak.

Note: Headset A and B are not able to hear each other through the headset at all. They can only hear each other since they are next to one another.

Please consult phone compatibility resources or Product Support for assistance if you have any questions about the Wireless Adapter.
