EHS means Electronic Hook Switch and is a feature to enable certain wireless headsets to answers and terminate calls directly from the wireless headset device by pressing a designated key. In other words, apart from the pure speech transmission, EHS makes call acceptance possible directly at the headset. By using EHS, telephones and headsets of different manufacturers can be combined. The snom EHS solution supports both wireless headsets from GN Netcom/Jabra as well as devices from Plantronics. This requires a corresponding connector at the headset.

The snom EHS solutions consist of an EHS adapter box and necessary cables. There are two EHS adapter versions:

  1. (not manufactured anymore) Wireless Headset Adapter: P/N: 00001203
  2. (new from 02/2010): EHS Advanced: P/N: 00002362

|A third party accessory is available from Sennheiser, the splitter cable connects the headset's base station to a desktop telephone and the Snom EHS box. |More information regarding the Sennheiser CEHS-SP 01 can be found here.

- (snom 3xx only) To use an expansion module and a wireless-headset adapter simultaneously you need a Y cord, since both plug into the connector labeled EXT on the back of the phone. Please note that the EHS with hardware revision R3A/B is no longer compatible with the Y-cord! For this reason, the Y-cord is not delivered with EHS revision R3A/B.
- You don't have to register the EHS device in the phone menu. Just connect it and restart the phone. It automatically detects the adapter.
