time a PC radio link is established the Microsoft Lync/Office
Communicator dial tone will be heard. However, the user may
have pressed the PC call control button to listen to music etc.,
and does not want to hear the dial tone. In this case, if the user
selects the “Audio sensing enabled” parameter, the radio link will
be established automatically when any PC audio is detected at
the USB port, thus eliminating the need for the user to press the
PC call control button.
“Audio sensing enabled” can be set to selected or not selected.

Range can be minimized to help with PC buzzing, improve user density, or restrict range
of users.
High
When Range is set to HIGH a user will have up to 300 feet of range.
When Range is set to MEDIUM a user will have up to 150 feet of range.
When Range is set to LOW a user will have up to 50 feet of range.
Auto answer

When auto answer is set to OFF you must press the headset call control button to answer an incoming
call.*
When Auto Answer is set to ON an incoming call will be answered when the headset is removed from the
charge cradle.*
*Assumes use of a softphone that is supported by Plantronics software.
PC audio
Bandwidth
The system will support both narrowband and wideband audio from the PC.
Wideband
Wideband audio delivers heightened speech clarity and life-like fidelity. However, wideband audio
consumes more battery power and has more stringent access criteria which reduces the number of
systems that can be deployed in a small area.
All PCs support wideband audio.
When switching between narrowband and wideband audio, you must re-establish the audio link for the
changes to take effect.
Anti-startle
Anti-startle provides advanced hearing protection against sudden loud sounds. When Anti-startle is
set to ON, the system identifies and eliminates sudden loud sounds and rapidly reduces them to a
comfortable level. When Anti-startle is set to OFF, the headset caps sound levels at 118 dBA to protect
your hearing.
Off
G616
G616 Acoustic Limiting provides additional hearing protection against acoustic shock. When G616
Acoustic Limiting is set to ON, the system provides additional acoustic shock protection. Sound
levels are limited to 102 dBA as recommended in the G616:2006 guideline issued by the Australian
Communications Industry Forum (ACIF).* When G616 Audio-Limiting is set to OFF, the headset caps
sound levels at 118 dBA to protect your hearing.
Off
*The noise monitor is set to accommodate typical variation in frequency response for this headset. Some
headsets may occasionally exceed by a few dB the 102 dBA limit recommended by G616.
Audio limiting
Off
Audio Limiting provides advanced hearing protection for daily noise exposure. When Audio-Limiting is
turned ON, the system monitors and controls sound to ensure action levels do not exceed 80 dBA or 85
dBA (whichever is selected) specified by current and imminent EU legislation*. When Audio-Limiting is set
to OFF, the headset caps sound levels at 118 dBA to protect your hearing.
*The noise monitoring feature is based on an average acoustic coupling between the headset and ear.
