Headsets for Dearborn Campus Zoom Phone Users

If your phone number is being transitioned to Zoom Phone and you are not receiving a replacement desk set, you are eligible to receive a project-funded headset to use with your computer. You will become eligible to receive your headset at the time you are notified by email that your phone number is about to be transitioned. The processes described on this page will not work for you until you have been notified.

Headsets for Dearborn campus Zoom Phone users are distributed at two Dearborn campus locations or through the Tech Shop, as described below.

Ann Arbor Campus users: Please see Headsets for Ann Arbor Campus Zoom Phone Users.

Flint Campus users: Please see Headsets for Flint Campus Zoom Phone Users.

Note: If you have an audio solution you currently use to participate in Zoom meetings, that solution may continue to serve your needs as you begin using Zoom Phone. These project-funded headsets are available only for existing telephone users being transitioned to Zoom Phone while the project is active and are not available for new phone numbers or those switching to a desk set.

Headset Choices

Two kinds of headsets are available. The headsets feature different connector types; please order a headset compatible with your computer.

Logitech USB Headset

Logitech Padded H390 USB Headset

  • Headset plugs into a USB port and is compatible with Windows, macOS, ChromeOS and popular calling platforms. Please note that you will need an adapter or USB hub (not included) if your computer doesn't have an available USB 1.1 or 2.0 port.
  • Features an adjustable, padded headband and plush ear pads.
  • Digitally enhanced USB audio provides superior sound clarity.
  • Noise-canceling microphone blocks unwanted sounds even in a noisy room.
  • Convenient in-line volume and mute controls offer easy access.
  • Rotating microphone boom swings out of the way when not in use.
  • Headset includes an 8' cable.

Apple EarPods

Apple EarPods with 3.5 mm Headphone Plug

  • Headset plugs into a 3.5 mm jack and is compatible with most devices that accept a 3.5 mm TRRS plug, including many non-Apple computers. Please check your computer's specifications for compatibility.
  • The design of the EarPods is defined by the geometry of the ear, making them more comfortable for more people than other earbud-style headphones.
  • The speakers inside the EarPods are engineered to maximize sound output and minimize sound loss.
  • The EarPods include a built-in remote that lets you adjust the volume, control the playback of music and video, and answer or end calls with a pinch of the cord.
