Excerpt: Plugged it in right out of the box and was using it within a half hour. Great sound quality. Love having the option to use this using the over-the-head or over-ear styles. Great having volume controls and on/off button right on the ear piece. I didn't buy the auto answering accessory because I don't roam far from the phone base when using the headset, so this is perfect as a stand-alone solution. Easy and quick to switch between using the handset or headset.
Excerpt: I spend alot of time on the phone being a Sales Professional and wish I would have pulled the trigger on a wireless office headset sooner in my career. I have been sufferring from severe neck pain for some time now and after about two weeks using this device the pain has reduced significantly. Although any wireless headset probably could have produced this same result I tested many other brands/models and this set hands down is the winner.
Pros: Battery Life, Clear Reception, Durable, Easy Controls, Works 300ft From Base
Excerpt: It takes a little while to setup correctly but once you have that sorted out it works well. At first I had to change the settings around so I could hear. In addition there was a large echo coming through, there is a fine balance of your settings to get this right but once done you won't have a problem.
Excerpt: I purchased this to replace an older Plantronics headset with a failing, no longer supported battery. The CS540 lasts all day and has a far greater range than the one it replaced. It is a little difficult to find the right and most comfortable ear gel piece but I can wear it all day and not have a problem.
Pros: Clear Reception, Easy Controls, Good range, Long lasting battery
Excerpt: The headset provides a clear sound and great range. Long lasting battery as well. Only drawback was the handset lifter that was pressing lines on the phone upon returning phone to base. Will probably switch to an EHS cable instead.
Excerpt: Purchased several for our cube farm. Everyone likes them after the correct settings were found. I like the CS540 better than my old CS50 and my lifter plugged right into the CS540. Others are asking for the CS540 now.
Summary: Works well most of the time but sometimes there's a weird electronic interference sound. The rest of the time it's perfect & the best out there, hands down. Lightweight, battery charges fast & seems to last a while. I don't use it constantly all day like some may but still use consistently throughout the day. Love the volume control and mute ability on the headset to go to restroom on those long boring conference calls!
Excerpt: Replaced my generic headset with Plantronics CS540 with lifter and wieh I did this long ago. A very durable, flexible, and high quality wireless headset that allows you to go from handset, to conference calls to headset with ease. I very comfortable giving this product 5 stars.
