How to subscribe or pair your Plantronics CS361N wireless headset to the charging base.

The CS361N wireless headset and charging base unit are originally subscribed or paired to each other. If your CS361N headset breaks or you lose it and a replacement headset is necessary, you will have to “re-subscribe” or “pair” the new CS361N headset to the base unit. This is a very simple process that takes less than 1 minute to pair and no tools are required. You will first need to purchase the replacement CS361N headset (Part number 71779-02 which has been discontinued). The Subscription process is as follows:

Step 1

Place your new CS361N headset in the charging cradle for at least 20 minutes to charge. Once charged, remove the headset.

Step 2

To enable the multi-shift pairing feature, press the speaking volume up “+” button for 5 seconds until the red power light flashes on the front of the base.

Step 3

Place the headset in the cradle and the power light will flash red for 2 seconds.
You have 10 seconds to complete the next step.

Step 4

Press either the “+” or “-” signs (headset speaker volume buttons) for 3 seconds.
The headset talk indicator light will turn on (green) during pairing and then off indicating a successful pairing.


Step 5

The last step is to unplug the AC power adapter for 5 seconds, then reconnect. You can do this by unplugging at the wall or the bottom of the base (as pictured).


Complete: If pairing was successful, your CS351N headset is now operational. If not, repeat the steps one more time or call a technician for assistance.
