Answering a phone by bringing a handest up to your ear with earphones on

I want to get these and wear them on a retail showroom floor. I do have to answer the phone sometimes on my job. Its a traditional office phone with a handset to pick up and put to my ear. Will I be able to wear the hearphones when I do this, or will I have to remaove one ear piece to do it?

Hi Amps211-

I also work in retail and occasionally have to answer the portable phone I carry around the store.  You need not remove an ear piece to answer the phone, although I usually do because I tend to bang the phone into my earpiece.  You are probably not the klutz that I am.

I can carry on a phone conversation with an ear piece removed because I have single-sided hearing loss and use my good ear to converse.
