Important Information
•
•
•
•
•
Privacy: The same features that make a
cordless headset convenient create some
limitations. Telephone calls are transmitted
between the telephone base and the headset
by radio waves, so there is a possibility that
your cordless headset conversations could
be intercepted by radio receiving equipment
within range of the cordless headset. For
this reason, you should not think of cordless
headset conversations as being as private as
those on corded telephones.
Electrical power: The telephone base of
this cordless headset must be connected
to a working electrical outlet which is not
controlled by a wall switch. Calls cannot
be made from the headset if the telephone
base is unplugged or switched off, or if the
electrical power is interrupted.
Potential TV interference: Some cordless
headsets operate at frequencies that may
cause interference to TVs and VCRs. To
minimize or prevent such interference, do
not place the telephone base of the cordless
headset near or on top of a TV or VCR. If
interference is experienced, moving the
cordless headset farther away from the TV
or VCR will often reduce or eliminate the
interference.
Rechargeable batteries: This product
contains lithium-ion rechargeable batteries.
Exercise care in handling batteries in order
not to create a short circuit with conductive
material such as rings, bracelets and keys.
The battery or conductor may overheat
and cause harm. Observe proper polarity
between the battery and the battery charger.
Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries:
Dispose of these batteries in a safe manner.
Do not burn or puncture. Like other batteries
of this type, if burned or punctured, they
could release caustic material which could
cause injury.
CAUTION
•
•
•
There may be a risk of explosion if you use a
wrong type of battery. Use only the supplied
rechargeable battery or replacement battery
(model BT191665).
Change this product’s batteries only in
accordance with the instructions and
limitations specified in this manual.
As with any batteries, do not allow
conductive materials such as rings, bracelets
•
•
•
or keys to come in contact with the metallic
parts of the battery. The battery or conductor
may overheat and cause harm.
Do not open or damage the batteries.
Released electrolyte is corrosive and
may cause injury to the eyes or skin. The
electrolyte may be toxic if swallowed.
Do not dispose of the batteries in a fire.
Check with local waste management codes
for special disposal instructions. To prevent
fire or shock hazard, do not expose this
product to water or any type of moisture.
Observe proper polarity orientation between
the battery and metallic contacts.
Do not disassemble your headset. There are
no user-serviceable parts inside. Refer to
qualified service personnel for servicing.
Mute
End an intercom call
The mute feature allows you to hear the other
party but the other party cannot hear you.
1. During a call, press MUTE/FLASH on the
headset. The headset announces, “Mute on.”
The headset beeps every 30 seconds until
the mute function is turned off.
2. Press MUTE/FLASH again to resume the
conversation. The headset announces, “Mute
off.”
• Press on the headset or place the headset
on the charger.
Switch a call between a handset and a
headset
Avoid rough treatment

packing materials to protect your headset if you
ever need to ship it.
• To switch from a cordless handset to a
headset during a call, press on the
headset, then hang up the cordless handset.
• To switch from a headset to a cordless
handset during a call, press the button you
use to answer call on the cordless handset,
then press on the headset.
Multiple headset/handset use
Headset(s) and handset(s) on the same phone
line can join an outside call at the same time.
The number of headset(s) and handset(s)
that can join may be limited by your telephone
system. Refer to the user’s manual of your
telephone for more information.
To share an outside call:
• When a headset or handset is already on a
call, press on another headset to join the
call.
• To exit the call, press again or place the
headset in the charger. The call continues
until all handsets and/or headsets hang up.

Precautions for users of implanted cardiac
pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital
cordless devices�):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR),
an independent research entity, led a
multidisciplinary evaluation of the interference
between portable digital cordless devices�sand
implanted cardiac pacemakers. Supported by
the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, WTR
recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep digital cordless devices at least
six inches from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place digital cordless devices
directly over the pacemaker, such as in a
breast pocket, when it is turned ON.
• Should use the digital cordless device at the
ear opposite the pacemaker.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to

Important safety instructions
When using your headset, basic safety
precautions should always be followed to
reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and injury,
including the following:
1. Read and understand all instructions in this
user’s manual. Observe all markings on the
product.
2. Avoid using a headset during a thunderstorm.
There may be a slight chance of electric
shock from lightning.
3. Do not use the headset to report a gas leak
in the vicinity of the leak. Under certain
circumstances, a spark may be created
when the adapter is plugged into the power
outlet, or when the headset is replaced in its
cradle. This is a common event associated
with the closing of any electrical circuit. The
user should not plug the headset charger
into a power outlet, and should not put
a charged headset into the cradle, if the
headset charger is located in an environment
containing concentrations of flammable or
flame-supporting gases, unless there is
adequate ventilation. A spark in such an
environment could create a fire or explosion.
Such environments might include: medical
use of oxygen without adequate ventilation;
industrial gases (cleaning solvents; gasoline
vapors; etc.); a leak of natural gas; etc.
4. Do not use this product near water, or when
you are wet. For example, do not use it
in a wet basement or shower, or next to a
swimming pool, bathtub, kitchen sink, or
laundry tub. Do not use liquids or aerosol
sprays for cleaning. If the product comes
in contact with any liquids, unplug any line
or power cord immediately. Do not plug the
product back in until it has dried thoroughly.
5. Install this product in a protected location
where no one can trip over any line or
power cords. Protect cords from damage or
abrasion.
6. If this product does not operate normally, see
the Frequently asked questions section of
this user’s manual. If you cannot solve the
problem, or if the product is damaged, refer
to the Limited warranty section. Do not
open this product except as may be directed
in your user’s manual. Opening the product
or reassembling it incorrectly may expose
you to hazardous voltage or other risks.
7. Replace batteries only as described in your
user’s manual. Do not burn or puncture
batteries — they contain caustic chemicals.
