We've stopped using telephones at work and everybody talks to each other with Teams or Zoom even if they don't want video. During the recent remodel most people decided to give up their desk phones for extra real estate, including me.
But using Teams with headphones or ear buds for unplanned calls is awkward. You have to keep them nearby even if they're not plugged in all the time, then fumble with them when a call comes in. I didn't like it so I bought one of these.
Now it sits next to my docking station, plugged in and waiting for a call. I just pick it up and answer on the screen. It's great! From a lifetime of experience I'm good for a long time holding it without much tsuris, and if I get tired I can just switch to buds. As it's still new, it's made for some fun conversations as people see it for the first time on a video call.
There are cheaper versions of this idea on Amazon, but I went with this one based on reviews and features. This one doesn't have any buttons to break or not work, and the sound is really very good - especially for those listening to me from a microphone right in front of my mouth. The handset is nice and heavy in the hands - maybe 8 ounces. You could definitely use it as a club to good effect. Full disclosure, however: the first one I was sent was a little bit shorty around the plug. It worked, but I was not sure it would last long-term, so I sent it back for a replacement. The new one was delivered the next day and has been perfect.
I'm honestly thinking about getting one for my mother to make it easier to use her iPhone. It comes with a USB-C adapter, but I'd need to pay extra for Lightning.
