RJ9 to RJ11 adapter?

deathnote666deathnote666 Registered User regular
Need to plug a RJ11 analog phone into a RJ9 headset port on a phone.

All kinds of RJ9 to RJ12 adapters and RJ11 to RJ45 adapters but not finding any RJ9 to RJ11.

Wil RJ11 work in an RJ12 adapter? Can't really find any info online about that.

    The telco-in port on an analog phone requires a higher voltage and has different impedance than the headset-out port on most phones (and, in fact, older phones didn't have a standard for voltage and impedance on the headset jack - it differed from manufacturer to manufacturer). I've never seen an adapter that can accomplish what you're trying to do, and I'm skeptical if one exists.

    What is your ultimate goal? There might be an easier way.

    I've got a Polycom soundstation and soundstation 2 I want to plug into the headset port of my VoIP phone. The soundstations have a power supply.

    Would a RJ12 adapter work?

    Probably not.

    Who manufactured your VOIP phone?

    Polycom. A newer version of the Soundstation is over $800 so I want to use what we got...

    What you probably want is an analog-to-VOIP adapter. This means the Soundstation wouldn't plug into your phone. It plugs into the adapter, and the adapter plugs into your network.

    If your phone system is Polycom, then look into something like this: https://www.polycom.com/voice-conferencing-solutions/voip-adapters/obi300.html.

    You just need to make sure the analog-to-VOIP adapter is compatible with your phone system.

    I was hoping to plug into the VoIP phone so no additional config was necessary.

    I've been looking at that adapter myself. My VoIP guy has been ghosting me hard so I don't know if he'll need to change config in the system to recognize the new phone if using an adapter. I don't have access to the system. Plus I don't want to constantly have to switch phones.
