REVIEW: New Plantronics CS540 Wireless Office Headset

A must have for any office professional, the new Plantronics CS540 will free your hands and allow you to roam your office while continuing your calls.  A huge productivity booster to help get you though a busy work day. Corded headsets are a great investment for any office environment, but spending a little extra money for a wireless headset will greatly enhance your headset investment.  Nothing substitutes the ability to roam your office while continuing to talk to your caller.  How often have you been talking when you needed a file on the other side of your office?  With a wireless headset you can continue your call while you walk to retrieve any necessary information.

The New Plantronics CS540 comes from a long line of top-performing “CS” headsets, and is the best of the best. To cover the most important features:

  • It is THE LIGHTEST weight headset in the industry, at just 21 grams.
  • This feather-light headset doesn’t skimp on battery life (up to 7 hours talk time!!).  Or range (up to 350 feet!!).  Or all-day wearing comfort with multiple wearing styles.
  • Convenient finger tip controls on the headset adjust speaker volume and mic mute.
  • Enjoy the brightest, clearest sound in the Plantronics headset line, thanks to its leading CAT-iq wideband audio, DECT voice-dedicated technologies and noise-canceling mic.

The CS540 Wireless Headset System comes with both over-the-ear and over-the-head wearing styles.  Both offer comfort.  Not give-your-ear-a-week-or-so-to-adjust comfortable. But comfortable “out of the box.”  Plantronics really has the ergonomics dialed in. You’ll notice it from the moment you put it on.

Sometimes the latest technology can also be complicated.  Not the CS540.  It is easily the simplest wireless headset yet to install, adjust and use.  I’ll spare you the “simple as 1, 2, 3” but it really is.

The Plantronics CS540, as with any of the Plantronics CS-series of wireless headsets, allows you to add an optional HL10 handset lifter to answer and hangup calls remotely with the push of a button.  With this feature, you answer your calls remotely and not miss calls to voice mail.  EHS electronic hookswitch cables are becoming very popular with newer phones to allow the same answer and hangup capabilities you get with the HL10, but with a cleaner interface.

Check out the new Plantronics CS540…you’ll wonder how you ever survived a work day without it!
