The CS520 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 CS520 has all the features you could ask for in a wireless headset starting with its elegant, contemporary design and lightweight 3.31 oz (94 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 nine.

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 CS520 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.

        Comments about Plantronics CS520 Wireless Headset System:

        My experience has been mixed. I was very happy with my previous unit a CS361N. I decided to upgrade as the 361's battery was getting old and tired. I had some issues installing this unit but Plantronics help desk was great. Unfortunatley the sideone quality is not great, so I can't hear myself. If I turn up the mic volume, I sound like I am in a hollow can. I'm getting used to it, but I should not have to. It should be at least as good as the earlier unit. Otherwise, it is pretty good and the range, one reason I "upgraded," is about 30% better in my office space than the 361's.

          Comments about Plantronics CS520 Wireless Headset System:

          I bought this from B&H because if thier customer service, but also because they've got the best prices. I work in a call center, with an extremely loud coworker sitting behind me, and these did the trick! You can adjust the settings just so to twek the sound to your liking. The only negative is they don't cancel out as much of the background noise on the receiving end as they do on my end (eg. the customer can still hear a little bit of noise, but this is still as vast imporovement on the standard set a call center issues you.) Also, if you like to walk around while you're on the phone, then this is a great headset for the money!

              Great headset, excellent clarity for both the caller and for the receiver. A must is the headset lifter.
