We consider the general semi-direct extension $G_S=H$ ⋊ $_S \mathbb R$ of the Heisenberg Lie group $H$, as defined in [10] by any $S \in \mathfrak{sp}(1,\mathbb R)$, and equipped with a family of left-invariant metrics $g_a$ $(a^2 \neq 1)$. This construction is a natural generalization of the oscillator group. We completely determine the conformally Einstein examples.
