    Hello,

    We need a solution for our own infrastructure.
    I want all of my salesmen to have an earpiece, connected to 3CX PBX.
    They need it for incoming calls, however, they also need to make outgoing calls once in a while.

    I want them to use an earpiece, so a handset is out of the question.

    What is the best solution for this?
    Using a workstation, that functions with a softphone, using multiple acounts?
    Or any other hardware?

    I've been looking around, and it seems that Plantronics earpieces are very good.

    Kind regards,
    Danny

    A lot of this comes down to personal preference, and cost. I know that with many laptops having built in Bluetooth , that a lot people re-use their phones Bluetooth headset with the telephony application in the computer.

    I agree.

    Which softphone software allows me to add multiple extensions?
    I'm googling, but can only find "mizu".
    I'll give this softphone a test.

    Anyone else that can suggest me another softphone?
    I need to add 5 accounts, and if they need to dial, they just have to select their account, and the call has to transfer to their earpiece only.

    I had used X-Lite (a free soft phone) a number of years ago. It was called X-Ten lite at the time. I can't recall if it allowed more than one VoIP registration (or line) at a time, but you might want to have a look at it. I'm sure it has gone through a number of evolutions since I used it.
