Plantronics CS50 Wireless Telephone Headset Trial

Tired of being tethered to your office phone by a standard handset and coiled cord or even a wired headset? Try a wireless telephone headset.

The Plantronics CS50 wireless convertible headset lets you roam up to 300 feet from your phone. Unlike some radio based technologies, this headset features a 64 bit digitally encrypted signal so that your private conversations remain private. You'll have 8 hours of talk time for a full day's work. The headset is charging anytime it is in its cradle and only needs an hour and a half to recharge to 80% capacity. Distracting background sounds are reduced by the noise canceling microphone that gives you a mute button for additional privacy or when you just need to clear your throat.

The Plantronics CS50 is called a convertible headset because it can be converted to any of 3 wearing styles. The standard setup is for over the ear wearing. For maximum long wearing comfort, it can be converted with a head band for over the head wear. An optional behind the neck kit is also available if you prefer that style.

You may be wondering how you'll answer your ringing phone when you are wearing your wireless headset but away from your desk. That's the job of the optional HL10 Handset Lifter. This robotic device automatically lifts your desk set receiver off-hook and returns it to the cradle when your call is finished. It enables remote or one touch call answering and ending with your Plantronics cordless CS50, CS10 and CA10 headset systems. The HL10 is compatible with most standard desktop telephones and contains a ring detector to make it compatible with older phones.
