What To Consider When Purchasing A  Wireless Headset
Why You Need A Lifter Or EHS Cable With Your Plantronics Wireless Headset
Plantronics CS530 VS CS540 Comparison

Plantronics CS530 Wireless Headset Benefits:

When considering headsets for yourself and staff, the first question is how you want it to fit. The two most common wearing styles are over the ear and over the head. The Plantronics CS530 wireless headset has become one of the most popular over-the-ear models, being lightweight, low profile, and easy to put on, all while providing great sound quality. The Plantronics CS530 wireless headset works great in any sized business up to the busiest of call centers. You will hear your callers clearly, and with a noise-canceling microphone, your caller will hear more of you and less of what’s going on in your background. This helps your call flow so you won’t take down wrong information or you’re not constantly having to repeat information to your caller. You need your headset to perform simply, making every call perfect without issues, so you can focus on your business at hand. The base of the CS530 has speaker and microphone adjustments, allowing you to dial in perfect volume settings. The headset also has a minor speaker volume adjust and mute button, so you can adjust from call to call as need be.

With multiple sized ear tips, you will find the perfect fit for all-day wearing comfort. The larger portion of the Plantronics CS530 wireless headset fits snugly behind your ear. This makes the fit feel secure, so constant adjusting is not needed. Most users put it on in the morning and don’t remove it until the day is complete. It’s so lightweight and comfortable, most users forget they have it on and will walk halfway to their car at the end of the day before they realize it. The base of the CS530 acts as your charger, so when the day is over, you simply dock it, allowing it to charge during the night and be ready to go the following day. If you’re ready for a productivity boost, the Plantronics CS530 wireless headset offers 350+ feet of range, 6 hours of talk time, is compatible with most business phones, and comes with multiple ear tips. You may also find that your calls flow better with a wireless headset, because you now have the ability to pace about your office or work space instead of being tied to your desk. The benefits you experience may be different than others, but once you discover the freedom you get, you will never be able to talk on a corded handset again.

  • Being mobile will improve your efficiency on every call
  • While talking; walk to files, reference materials, co-workers, copier…
  • Freeing your hands for typing and writing increases productivity
  • Weighing 25 grams makes the CS530 perfect for all day wearing
  • 6 hours of talk time gets you through the busiest of work days
  • Superior audio quality helps in never asking to repeat information
  • 350+ feet of distance gives you mobility throughout your office
  • Over-the-ear provides a low-profile, discreet wearing style
  • DECT technology for better audio and eliminates Wi-Fi interference
  • Adaptive power system optimizes for range and talk time

    I am on my second headset. I used the first headset everyday for almost 7 years, then the battery would not hold a charge. The headset allow me the freedom to move around the office while conducting phone calls. I would recommend this headset for all office personnel the need to leave their desk to conduct business.

  2. dps

    Battery last all day, great reception all around factory! Great when troubleshooting equipment and need to move around and talk.

  3. Cheryl (verified owner)

    Love my Headset, Ive used this same brand for the past several years and its very comfortable on my ear.

  4. swos

    This headset is hard to use. It needs to be set just right on the charger or it doesn’t charge. The feedback is terrible also, still have not been able to get it set right.

  5. Poppy

    Replaced a five year old Plantronics headset with the CS530. Better sound and range with this headset.

  6. Michele

    Thank you for great customer service.

  7. Paula

    More comfortable than previous headset.

  8. GadgetMan911

    Upgraded our phone system to Cisco, purchased this headset for the office coordinator desk, and she says it works great so far.

  9. Rock

    We have some of the older model headsets so when we had to replace our worn units, we just knew we had to find more Plantronics of a similar type. These units do a great job for us.

  10. Debbie

    This is the first headset we have purchased for our front office coordinator, and it is great. We did purchase the lifter, which we were not sure we needed. Together they work great. Easy to install with directions, but did have to play with setting for echo and feedback at first. Customer service was helpful in selecting the correct device for our phone system and use. Considering purchasing another one for our check out staff person.

  11. Sales gal

    So far I’ve had no issues and figured it out easily. I like that I am hands free to type while I talk and it makes me want to make more calls just to use the nifty thing…..I do get called mission control now!

  12. Pam

    We love this headset in my office. We have several. My only complaint is that is does take several seconds, if not minutes, for it to show that it is charging. And if you don’t have it fitted in just right then it won’t charge. And you will be disappointed the next morning when you come in and it isn’t charged enough to use.

  13. Butch

    I like the style of this headset much better than others. I have had two of the old CS 70’s and this new head set is superior. Same comfortable fit, charging station works well. I have not had the problem with positioning in the charger I found in other reviews.

  14. David

    This was a purchase for a customer that is on the phone a lot. They love the phone and how it works. Said it was comfortable to wear all day.

  15. Mary Kay

    I needed a new headset, and I looked into the website, and the process was so easy to order, and it did not take long to receive my headset! Thank you for your promptness!

  16. Orderlady

    Love this headset. Small footprint on the desk for charging station. Great clarity of phone conversations. And it doesn’t mess my hair up like a lot of the headsets would. 🙂

  17. keith

    Great headset for a reasonable price. More than meets our needs

  18. BB

    I love the headset for our front desk phone. I wish I would have ordered it years ago. Easy to use and sure beats the kink in the neck when you are on hold

  19. Kelli

    Love it, arrived quick, easy to install. Calling the toll-free number to check the adjustment settings was great. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a headset!

  20. Lynn

    Very comfortable to wear for long periods of time

  21. Lynn

    I like the headset simply because it’s lightweight and since I ordered mine, I’ve had to order 2 additional ones for people in my office. Charging is very easy and it charges quickly.

  22. Roxy

    Made my work flow much easier. No complaints…

  23. Jan

    Love it! Easy to use, lightweight and sounds great.

  24. Mac

    I bought three of these to have on reserve for our office. Currently everyone in the office has been using this make and model for 2 years. There is a 1 year warranty on the headsets and base and the warranty claim process is fairly easy to initiate. In the 1st year I initiated 2 warranty claims with the manufacturer. In year 2 I’ve had 1 Wireless Headset take a dump. I would have to say that we are getting daily and consistent use out of this model of headset and would consider this product to be a fair purchase. If you have small ears the over the ear headset will be hard to wear. It will pop off. I suggest a headband instead.
