Save me googling

I hate having to wear headphones, but due to the nature of the job I'll miss a call if take them off

Is there a good ( cheap) desktop speaker that works as a microphone and a speaker?

I'd like to have the radio on and be able to answer a call if necessary

I'm sure there is such a thing but I can't think what it is. A conference call phone?

I tried to find this and couldn't, when we all got moved to cubes

Like there are headsets for your desk phone - that won't do anything for music
And the proper headphones that won't connect to your phone

I got good Sonys and just leave one of the ears askew if I'm expecting a call.
Not a solution, or even a hack. Just needs must.


If you do find an answer, I'd love to hear it.

Edit: I REFUSE TO EDIT THIS REPLY. You may jeopardy your way to the question.

It's a good question. Everyone hates it but here we are, being treated like children and being told that it's "fun."

It's probably related (i'm not being sarky here) to the financialization of civilisation that has been going on since at least the 70s, no one really understands how all the money works but there's definitely a ton of it being made by turning our very thoughts into more money, and simplistic reactions are the easiest ones to provoke.
