Summary: If you are in a large business, you are better off getting headsets that you can actually change the battery. Otherwise be prepared to shell out extra cash.
Pros: Good price, easy to setup and good range.
Cons: Out of the dozen or so we have ordered, 3 of the headsets went bad in less than a week. You can't change the batteries on these, so you have to go and order either a new headset unit (about $100) or get the whole thing for $180 or try to use the warranty and wait a few weeks. All in all, its not ...
Pros: Once you get it set up, it works more or less as expected.
Cons: A real pain to configure. For no reason I could identify, it didn't work with the phone I had. I messed around with it for ages thinking I was doing something wrong. Finally bought another phone and it worked.
Summary: I am an IT consultant and need to talk to customers from my home office. The CS70 fits the bill, but many callers tell me that they can hear my dogs, water running from my faucet, and even birds outside my window!
Summary: It's a great product when it works, but it seems that they're all bound to experience the same problem. For that reason alone I think they should increase the factory warranty to 2 years. I just threw a CS70 in the trash can because its warranty expired in August.
Pros: Purchased 15 of these units last year for our CSRs. These units have great range and the audio quality is very nice.
Cons: Of the 15 we purchased, we had to send around 10 of them back after a few months. The phone would ring, and when pressing the call control button the handset lifter wouldn't lift the handset for 10-15 seconds. By that time the call had gone to voice mail. We've had to deal with some angry custome...
Summary: I bought this with Panasonic KX-TG8422EB Colour DECT Twin Phone With Answer Machine - Black which was a "frequently bought together with" item. However Plantronics advise that these units are not compatible and certainly I have had poor results and will be returning this item unfortunately.
Plantronics C70 - great device, but range an issue

Summary: Bought this C70 so I could carry on working while sitting through hours of audio conference. Overall, I'm really pleased with it, but there are couple of caveats to be aware of. Firstly, the range is lower than a typical DECT handset, so I found my home office (two floors above the base station) was...
