1096-70 Push-to-Mute (PTM) Specialty Handset for Avaya 1100/1200

$115.00 US


The 1096-70 is a push-to-mute (PTM) specialty handset for Avaya 1100/1200 series telephones. Using original manufacture’s equipment, the handset’s talk button assists to control background noise and privacy. The ergonomic design eases fatigue and provides maximum comfort.

The 1096-70 PTM specialty handset allows for periodic user-controlled muting of transmit speech and background noise during a call. The handset works by disabling the handset microphone when the mute button is pressed and restoring normal operation when the button is released. In doing so, the PTM handset prevents background noise and conversations from being heard at the far end (in between speaking).

Common application environments include:

  • Financial trading
  • Banks
  • Dispatch
  • Conference call participants
  • Military
  • Emergency services


Algo specialty handsets meet stringent electrostatic discharge (ESD) requirements.
