    Hi all,
    I'm looking for a wireless headset that works over WiFi and talks directly to the 3CX server, not as an "add-on" to a hard or soft phone. I guess this means the headset would need to have a SIP client built into it. I know its a big ask but you never know.
    Many thanks

    You need to properly explain what your requirements are so we can make educated recommendations;

    why do you want to communicate via WIFI / 802.11a/b/g/n?

    why do you want a headset?

    will you be roaming between WIFI access points? If so, you will not be able to hold an *active* VoIP session over a WIFI connection unless your WIFI access points support 'roaming'.

    From what you mention simply either;

    (a) get a Plantronics headset, hook it up to an IP phone

    or

    (b) get a SNOM M3 or Linksys WIP310 and plug a headset into it

    I haven't seen a SIP based headset but you can plug a headset into a SIP WiFi phone which can be clipped to the waist. I don't know if there is much of a market for something like that right now. Bluetooth is better suited given the variables involved in setting up any SIP device.
