Section 6: CS500 & W700 Wireless Headsets Available for Cisco Phones
In an earlier section, you learned Plantronics wireless headsets are compatible with Cisco phones. To get into more details, you have two families of wireless headsets from which to choose.
The CS500 series is the standard version of wireless headset that connects to your Cisco phone. This series works well if your only mode of communicating within the office is through your Cisco phone. You have four basic models from which to choose with different wearing styles. All-day comfort and great battery life will get you through the busiest of work days.
The Savi W700 series of Plantronics headsets not only connects to your Cisco phone, but also to your PC and Bluetooth phone. This allows you to keep one headset charged and ready for use no matter which way someone tries to contact you. This is a great convenience, combining three headsets into one. If you need to join a webinar or listen to online training, you simply press the PC button on the base, and your headset becomes your audio device for your PC instead of blasting the office with your external speakers. The Savi headset is also there for use with your mobile phone while in the office (you cannot use the headset with your mobile phone outside of the range of the base). The Savi headset wearing style choices are the same as for the CS500 series. The base is what's upgraded to support two other communication points (PC & Mobile Phone).
With both solutions you can also gain remote answer/hang-up capabilities with an optional HL10 or EHS cable.
