WIRELESS OFFICE
HEADSET SYSTEM
WELCOME
Thank you for selecting the CS50 Wireless Office
Headset System from Plantronics. You have made the right
choice for comfort and versatility.
This system allows your telephone to use a cordless Plantronics
headset through an adapting base. It offers hands-free
convenience and long-range workspace mobility.
With the use of an optional handset lifter, the user can
remotely receive the telephone’s ring alert and can answer
the call by simply pushing the talk button on the headset.
This side of the guide has the Important Safety Instructions
that should be read prior to set up and use of your system.
The quick start part on the other side identifies the
components, has five steps to get you started, and test the
system.
Most telephones will work with little or no adjustments. This
system is not designed to work with phones which have the
dial pad built into the handset.
