Why buy a second headset just for your home or office phone? Use the PC35-PH25 HeadstBuddy Adapter and your existing PC headset with a home or office phone that has a single 2.5mm plug.
A big productivity enhancer for home businesses, call centers, sales people, road warriors, or anyone who is on the phone all the time, but doesn't want to carry two headsets, one for the computer, and one for the phone.
This amazing adaptor is designed for anyone who uses Skype, RingCentral, or other computer-based Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone services. It works by converting the standard headset 3.5mm mic/audio plugs to a standard 2.5mm plug, allowing you to use your favorite PC computer/laptop headset with your phone or cell phone. This adapter is designed for use with headsets that have two 3.5 mm. plugs; one for the microphone and one for the headphones/earpiece(s). The adapter outputs binaural sound for stereo headsets, meaning you will hear sound out of both ears. The adapter cable is approximately five (5) inches long.
This list is not all inclusive. Please look up the specifications on your specific phone to see if it has a 2.5mm headset jack. Most older mobile phones (non smartphones) and home phones have a 2.5mm jack.

Hey everyone! I found a solution for getting these to work properly on the aluminum macbook pros and iphones!!
The problem is that that the bodies of these are metal and so is the face of the pin, and the headset buddy shorts out on the case of the phone or computer. Many MFG's like RODE have plastic on the base of the 3.5mm jack or use on O-Ring. I solved the issue by using one of those tiny vinyl hair ties my wife has kicking around, breaking it, tying it around the jack and then snipping the ends off. It creates a kind of O-Ring. You have to push the jack in pretty hard to get it to fire up but it works and once in sees to stay. I also tried a tiny bit of electrical tape I cut into a thin strip with scissors but the elastic band thingy works better.
I thought of maybe using liquid electrical tape or something but it has worked so I haven't bothered yet.
Tried two of these so far. Bought one and used it to record some audio to an iphone 6 plus using a Sennheiser ew100 G3 Wireless Lav mic and it worked great. Next time I went to use it, nothing. Couldn't figure it out, and finally broke down and bought another. Guess what. It worked! Then I unplugged it, and plugged it in again a few minutes later to do a test with my wife. Nothing. For some reason, you unplug and it it fries something inside or something. The G3's have phantom power, so I'm guessing it has something to do with that, but I have no idea how you would avoid killing this with wireless mic.
The first item (has the green and pink connectors) converts 2 RCA type female jacks to a 2.5 mm male phone style jack. The green RCA is the input from headphones and the pink RCA is the input from a microphone. On the other end of it the 2.5 mm jack if you look closely has only 2 black rings on the chrome male plug. This indicates that it is a Mono (not Stereo) plug (one black ring for the speaker and one for the microphone). This is important. This means it will work on many home telephones (home phones only have one speaker and are mono not stereo). Also the female input on many home phones is 2.5 mm while the female input on most cell phones is 1/8 inch (or 3.5 mm). So the issue is that most headphones have a male jack and are designed to fit cell phones (3.5 mm) and will not work on home phones (2.5 mm). In short, this jack takes the input for a mic and speaker in the form of a female RCA and converts it to a male 2.5 mm mono phono output (jack). The male output will not work for most cell phones 3.5mm but will work for most home phones that require a 2.5 mm male phone jack
If by the off chance you have headphones that have a 2.5 mm male stereo jack and want to use them on your cell phone which requires the larger (3.5 mm) jack, then the second product in this package is for you. Here you see the 2.5 mm female input which is converted into the 3.5 mm male that fits most cell phone. Notice that on this jack there are 3 black rings on the male chrome jack instead of two like on the other tack described above. This is because this jack is designed for “Stereo” type products such as cell phones. Now you might argue that cell phones only have one speaker too, and you would be correct. However Cell phones still have a Stereo type jack (three black rings) because people plug stereo headphones in and listen to their music.
You might ask if you can use a stereo jack in a mono input connection. The answer appears to be no as the first jack I purchase was a 3.5 to 2.5 stereo jack (YCS Basics All Metal 2.5mm (3/32") male to 3.5mm (1/8") female 4 conductor (TRRS) adapter). The 3.5 mm (1/8 inch) jack from my headphones fit into the female part of the jack just fine. And the 2.55 mm male end of the jack fit with no problem into my 2.5 connector on my home telephones mono input. However, the little black rings must not line up correctly because while I could hear fins, no one could hear me.
In the end the lesson I learned was this. Headphones are stereo (one for each ear). Cell Phones are also Stereo (they need a male stereo capable jack. Home Telephones are Mono and need a male mono jack. By looking at the male end of the jack you can tell if it is mono or stereo by counting the black rings. 2 rings = mono (mic and ear). 3 rings = Stereo (mic and 2 ears). Additionally there are 2.5 and 3.5 female connections. The connection on your cell phone is 3.5 so if your jack fits it, then you have a 3.5 jack.
Hope this helps
UPDATE #1: Despite the performance I haven't found a better replacement so I've been using this. While on a call, a complete fluke happened; my elbow rested on the headphone connection and I was immediately able to hear in both the left and right headset (thus mimicking stereo sound). This confirms what other reviewers have said: the physical connections aren't tight enough. I don't know if this was even supposed to happen, but it made my phone calls so much better by hearing people in conference rooms in both ears.
