CS500 Supporting Multiple Earpieces in Multi-Shift Ops

The topic of this article is to illustrate how the CS500 series wireless telephone headset systems can be used in a multi-shift customer support environment with users sharing common workstations but with personal headsets or earpieces allocated to different people.

CS520 Base

 CS540 Convertible System  CS510 Monaural System  CS520 Binaural System

The CS500 series wireless headsets connect directly to desktop phones, and do not have removable cradles as featured with the multi-device Savi 700 series.

Because the CS500 and Savi 700 earpieces share a common form factor and DECT communications protocol, the Savi W740, W710 and W720 headset/cradle combos can be used in combination with offline charging units to provide multi-shift capability for the CS540, CS510 and CS520 wireless systems.

The cradles are loaded onto an offline charging unit, and the second headset is mounted onto the respective cradle for offline charging while the main system and headset are in use. (Either headset will also charge on the system Base). When an alternate user wants to connect live, he/she simply mounts their headset earpiece onto the main system Base, and it will automatically subscribe to the system. The first user then moves their earpiece to the offline charger/cradle to recharge for later use.

p/n 86005-01 p/n 84609-01

There are two charger configurations available, a single bay unit where there are just two people sharing a single system with individual headsets, and a 5-Bay charger for larger 24×7 operations with multiple systems and users.

Batteries

The CS540 and W740 earpieces are similar in form factor and functionality, but use different battery components.

The CS540 uses a flat rechargeable battery which is connected to the earpiece via a micro-connector inside the casing. Simply push down and back on the battery cover to remove it and access the battery.

The W740 battery is a hot swap component which slides onto the back of the earpiece.

Note that the CS540 and W740 earpieces are distinguishable by the black boom on the CS540 and the silver boom on the W740.

The CS510/520 and Savi W710/W720 are the same earpieces in every respect and use the same rechargeable batteries which may be accessed under a little rubber door on the edge of the headset.

Plantronics Wireless Headsets – Batteries

Plantronics wireless headsets are available in several families which includes the CS50, CS55, CS70N, CS351N/CS361N, the new CS500 series and the new Savi W700 series.  All of these wireless systems use Lithium Ion (Li-on) batteries in the ear pieces that need replacing periodically, typically after about 2 years, although this varies depending on usage and how often they are charged. If you as a user notice that the battery is not holding its charge for more than a couple of hours, then it is time to get a new battery.  And if the headset is mission critical, then stock up on some spare batteries.

Here are the batteries for various headset models along with some installation tips.

64399-01 Battery for CS50/CS55

64399-01 Battery for CS50/CS55

The 64399-01 is the replacement battery for the CS50 and CS55. To replace this battery, remove the cover on the underside of the earpiece, unhook the tiny electrical plug and remove the old battery, then connect the new battery and replace the cover. This process can be a bit tricky, so if you have problems, see the detailed procedure at this link.

Tip: To squeeze a bit more life out of an old battery while you are waiting for a replacement, try resetting the CS55 system. Here’s how.

72910-01 CS70N Earpiece

72910-01 CS70N Earpiece

The CS70N is a sealed earpiece and does not have a replaceable battery. Order the 72910-01 earpiece to replace the battery.

64399-01 Battery for Over the Head Headsets

All of the Plantronics over-the-head headsets, including the CS351N/CS361N, Savi Office WH300/WH350, CS510/CS520 and Savi W710/W720 use the same 64399-03 battery.

The Savi W740 cradle will mount on the Savi Office WO100 base.  Note you will need to order Headband, neckband and/or Earhook Fit Kit separately with the W740 upgrade.

Plantronics New CS500 Wireless Telephone Headsets Rock!

Plantronics CS500 Series

Plantronics CS500 Series Wireless Headsets

Plantronics legendary CS family is setting a new wireless standard for desk phone communication with the CS500™ Series, which features the lightest DECT™ headset on the market, a new streamlined design and improved performance.  The new CS500™ Series features the same reliability for hands-free productivity that has made the CS family a best seller for nearly a decade, as well as several new features including premium wideband audio, improved range up to 350 feet, and multi-headset conferencing. An added benefit is that you can pair (subscribe) headsets from a Savi Office system with a CS500 base, especially useful where the CS510/CS520 headset has the same form, fit and function for desk phone connectivity as the Savi Office WO300/WO350, and you want to move operators between stations (multi-shift operations).

CS540 Earpiece

CS540 Earpiece/Earhook

The CS540 system replaces the CS55 and features a convertible earhook/headband wearing style with the lightest DECT earpiece on the market (just 21 grams).

The earhook configuration includes several earhook and earbud gels, and a soft rubber sleeve on the plastic earhook makes for a comfortable and stable fit. The interchangeable headband replaces the earhook/earbud with a plush leatherette earpad for those who prefer a over-the-head fit.

The earpiece itself contains a replaceable, rechargeable lithium battery with 7 hours talk time, and the base features a magnetic docking slot to make for easy placement of the earpiece into the charging cradle.

CS520 Base

CS520 Base and Headset

The CS510 and CS520 replace the CS351N and CS361N wireless systems, incorporating the enhanced broadband, 350 foot range and multi-headset conferencing features described above, 9 hours of talk time, as well as the interchangeability of the headset with Savi Office WO300/WO350 systems.
