Plantronics CS500 series headset for How to train with the CS500 and Savi W700 wireless headsets

CS510 wireless headset for desk phones

Plantronics wireless office headsets allow you to conference up to 3 additional users to hear both sides of the call. This is great for training new team members or for monitoring to improve customer service. Those conferenced on may mute their microphone, eliminating any unwanted sounds from being transmitted to the customer.

We’ve put together a quick guide of the steps you should follow when training new team members using Plantronics CS500 or Savi W700 series wireless headsets. This easy process works for land line calls (CS500 & W700) and softphone calls (Savi W700 only). Of course, you should check state law regarding notifying all parties when someone is listening in.

If all the headsets in the session are the same wearing style, follow the steps in the top example. If different style headsets are being used, the second example shows the correct steps.

To Conference up to 4 CS500 or Savi W700 Wireless Headsets – Identical Wearing Styles

1. While the master user has an active link (headset turned on and light flashing), place the guest headset in the charge cradle of the master headset. The power/subscription light on the base will begin flashing and a beep will sound in the master headset.
2. Single press the call control button on the master headset within 10 seconds to accept the guest headset link. If CS500 the base subscription light will be flashing indicating a headset conference. If W700 the base subscription indicator light will be solid yellow, indicating a headset conference.
