6) Connect the RJ12 to the EXT port on the back of your Yealink phone. Then connect the Plantronics Interface Cable (86007-01) into the headset port on the back of the phone.

Note: This cable must be plugged into the headset jack and NOT the handset jack.

Yealink Ports and Plugins


The EHS36 should work right out of the box without any additional programming of your Yealink phone, however, we have experienced EHS cables initially not answering remotely, and you need to be at your phone to press the headset button to establish a call.  To resolve this issue please follow the following steps:

1) Unplug the EHS cable from the wireless base and telephone.
2) Unplug the power cord from the base and wait 60 seconds.
3) Plug the power cord back into the base and wait for the power indicator lights to come on.
4) Plug the EHS cable into the wireless base and telephone.

This should resolve the issue, and it is now ready for use.

One other thing to check is the dial settings on the bottom of the Headset Base to make sure they are correctly set.  The following image shows a good place to start with these settings:

  1. will the EHS36 work with my Yealink phone T46S and my plantronics wireless headset model CS540 and plantronics busy light indicator 65116-02?

    • The EHS36 will be the solution you need. To the best of our knowledge, the busy light wouldn’t have a port to plug into. It would be best to consult Yealink regarding the busy light.
