Should you not wish to use the wired handset, there are four wide bandwidth speakers and two digital mics, which means you can still make and receive calls, as well as play any music loaded on your device, with the receiver still docked. 

Other devices with a USB port can also be hooked up to ivoxia’s AudioOffice, though the experience is optimised for the iPad and iPhone.
