The CS540 Wireless Headset System by Plantronics is destined to be the new standard in DECT (digital enhanced cordless telecommunication) wireless headsets. DECT technology provides superb audio and eliminates interference from Wi-Fi networks.
The CS540 has all the features you could ask for in a wireless headset starting with its elegant, contemporary design and lightweight 0.74 oz (21 g) headset with one-touch call/answer, volume, mute and flash controls all at your fingertips. The headset provides up to 350 feet of hands-free operation with a replaceable battery which charges in three hours and lasts up to seven.
If that wasn’t enough, it also offers a noise-canceling microphone which reduces background ambiance ensuring exceptional audio quality and easing listener fatigue. While you’re the one listening, SoundGuard technology protects against sound levels above 118 dBA and Anti-startle technology detects and eliminates large and sudden increases in signal level.
Setup is simple. The CS540 base connects to any desk phone with the included telephone interface cable. To answer, simply press the call/answer button on the headset or for touchless operation, enable the auto answer feature allowing you to accept incoming calls by a simple lift of the handset. Once connected, you’ll experience high definition voice quality with advanced wideband audio technology and enhanced DSP (digital signal processing) making speech sound clearer and more natural.
New headsets can be connected to the base by simply docking them. Once a headset has been docked, you can then begin using it right away with the system. Conference in up to three additional headsets for enhanced collaboration and use the optional Electronic Hookswitch Cable or Handset Lifter for remotely answering or ending calls (each sold separately).
Please note! This headset is designed to work with most desktop phones on the market. For specific compatibility, please check the Plantronics website, where you can enter the make and model number of your phone.

Easy to connect. Easy to use. The ear piece was difficult to get a good fit. Sound was better and more clear verses the over the ear headphones.If your jobs requires a lot of phone time I would highly recommend.

My employer just got me a new headset (CS530). The sound is very good. I absolutely hate the mute though. It takes too long for the mute to engage, hurts your ear since you have to press and hold down the volume button to engage mute and repeat that in order to disengage the mute. Stupid design. Also, I cannot answer my particular phone (Meridian) by pressing the answer button on the headset. I have to press the answer button on the headset AND the phone base. I do love the cordless design and seems to have great range.

Best headset ever. Comes with multiple setups for over ear and in ear. Very flexible and versatile with the volume and controls. Would recommend to anyone looking for wireless headset.

THIS HEADSET HAS GOOD SOUND. I GET GOOD RANGE WALKING AROUND OUR OFFICE STILL BEING ABLE TO ANSWER CALLS. THE ONLY THING THAT I DON’T CARE FOR IS THE MAGNETIC BOTTOM THAT ATTACHES IT TO THE CHARGING BASE STICKS TO MY EARRINGS WHICH FEEL ANNOYING.

Everyone says that I come in very clear and I can also hear much better than the old one.

This is a replacement to an older model, love the fact that I don’t have to have the head gear on, just wish they made the ear pieces a little smaller for us ladies with little ears

Absolutely love my 5200 headset. It’s so comfortable I forget that I’m wearing it

I am not sure what all the complaints about the earpiece. The earpiece is the best design to date. I love how snug it sits as well as the lightweight and battery life. This is far superior to any other unit thus far that my company has ordered. We just ordered 50 units for all other Departments.

I bought the product back in October of last year. Suddenly the earpiece died on it, Plantronics stands behind their product, and now in May they are still covering it under warranty!

This headset had a broken speaker when it was sent. I’ve spent over 3 hours with tech support whom finally concluded I needed a new product. I’ve still not heard back from Plantronics when they will send me a product that actually works since I bought one I’ve never been able to use.

Product was easy to setup. Communication is very clear. There is no interruption between other users in the office. Great product. Highly recommend.

I use the headset constantly to review workpapers and carry on a conversation at the same time. The price at B&H was the best around and no shipping charges either. It was here the next day!

I bought 6 more of these after purchasing 16 of them with the lifters. Sound quality is great even when going one floor up from the office.

Not so happy with the comfort makes my ear sore, and I would like to switch ears, go from left to right, am not able to.

Our old headsets needed replaced, and choose this one. We’ve had them about 2 weeks and love them. Volume on ear piece is great, clear reception on both ends. Would recomment

The ear piece just didn’t fit right. nothing more to say.

Each installed their headsets without issue and are using them as I write this. It has saved their muscles in their necks and shoulders! Connection and audio is not diminished. Thank you

I just bought this today. Charged it and played with the settings. I troubleshoot equipment for a living, so I doubt very very much that I made an error. The sound cranked up to maximum sounds faint. The microphone would not work no matter what I tried. I am not found of the “comfortable” over the ear or the head setting. It is severely overpriced for what it is supposed to do. I am taking it back TODAY. Not even sure if i should venture get another one, in the off chance it was a fluke and got a dud. In one word… disappointed!

We use these headsets exclusively in my office. However, the calling party frequently has difficulty hearing us when we speak. I haven’t found any fixes to this yet.

We bought 2 of these units and it has been the best investment. It give our receptions to ease of moving around our busy office and not having to be tied to their desk all day
