Using standard headphones, is it possible to connect it to a standard non-VOIP wired phone? What connector would I need, or how could I rewire this?

Headphones have some kind of 3.5 mm jack, Phone handsets have 4 wires BRGY going into a jack. But that's all I understand.

The first step in researching this kind of project is to look for the pinout.

Then you can check what a common headset plug might be (there are different pinouts, you'll need to test yours, especially for an Apple product):

Then you might think, someone must have done this before, so you google the final product and get this kind of thing:

So, you can build it by buying the proper 2.5mm female jack and wiring it in to the handset plug, or you can buy the finished product for around $15.
