Plantronics CS540 Wireless Convertable DECT Headset : Good headset, clear reception

Extremely easy installation and intuitive functionality. I’m using it with a cisco ip phone spa 525g and the plantronics apc-45 electronic hook switch cable that make the (ugly) lifter unnecessary. The headset is provided with a different tools to ensure the best fit for the user, though the head-band (included) seems to be the preferred option in my office. Very sleek product, with good quality materials (it doesn’t look/feel cheap).

Purchased with an apu-72 lead for use with a nortel 1130 ip desk phone, which supports ehs, so you don’t need a handset lifter with this configuration. The speech quality is excellent, and since both headset and phone support wideband audio, this can be turned on, which also improves this. I work in an open-plan office, hence no walls to attenuate signals, so range is excellent, as is battery life. Supplied with a wide range of wear options (over head band monaural and over-ear), with both left and right options available, 3 different over-ear clips and 2 in-ear buds, it took some time to work out the most comfortable combination for me. I have to agree with other comments that the foam on the over-ear clip is not the best method i have used – would have preferred either a silicone rubber clip with either plastic or metal core (the ultimate would have been a thermosetting clip, that the user could mould around their ear, before it set). Either way, i’ve been using it for a while now and would recommend it, absolutely, but do try out all the mounting options to find the most comfortable for you.

Good headset, clear reception, good range and long battery life. I have bought 15+ and am very happy, no complaints from the operators.

It happened a few times that the battery was dead whe i came to work in the morning, although it was in the dock. . For some reason it did not charge. Otherwise, easy to use, light, good quality, looks professional, cannot fault it.

These headsets are well worth the money you pay for them. They allow for very clear conversations and have a good wireless range. Our guys even walk out of the office into the toilet still on the phone.

This really is a great product. After suffering with neck ache and spending fortunes on osteopathy treatment i was advised by my osteopath that my problems existed because i spent much of my working day on the phone with the handset wedged between my ear and shoulder so i could type on my pc at same time as talking. This is the 2nd plantronics headset i have purchased after the original battery finally ceased recharging after 3 years of constant use, but my neck problems had been curedthe sound quality is very clear and volume easily adjusted on the headset, range is excellent i have been able to walk to a lower floor and outside the office without any loss of connection or drop in sound quality. There are several different sizes of rubber earpieces to ensure comfortable fit for anyone. The reason for the drop in stars is that the headset is not as comfortable as my previous version. The hook that fits behind the ear is made of hard plastic with a small loop of very thin foam which fits over it to supposedly make it comfortable. Previously the hook was moulded rubber and i could wear it all day and often would forget i was wearing it at all. I cannot say the same with this version, the foam loop does not cover the whole of the hook and is virtually impossible to keep in a position where it is comfortable for any period of time. I can only assume the reason for change is to reduce manufacturing costs but in doing so they have made an outstanding product mediocre and next time i will look at alternative manufacturers as for me comfort is no. 1 priority with such a product and for me plantronics got it wrong when trying to cut manufacturing costs in wrong area.
