Why is phone headset technology so bad?

As mentioned earlier in my blog, I'm now working mostly from my home office. So far, settling in has been rather smooth except for the phone headset situation. I recently purchased a new corded phone with a descent speaker phone. It works pretty well except while in speaker phone mode the first few syllables of the 'low talkers' gets cut off.

earI've been experimenting with a headset that Vdot gave me (she had a bunch of spare parts), but
1) I can't hear well unless I'm pressing the earpiece into my ear -- in which case, I might as well be using the handset, and
2) Try as I might, I can't figure out how to hook the dang thing onto my ear without folding my ear into a contorted position -- which then causes it to get super hot due to the blood rushing to it.

As Will T. accurately put it, "What animal did they test these things on?!"
