Question about Plantronics CS70 Wireless Headset

CS70N Wireless headset

I am trying to figure out how to hear an incoming call on my headset...I'm unclear as I also have a handset lifter & when I power on the headset the phone comes off the hook & I get a dial tone. If I leave the power on the headset off - the phone stays on the hook - but how will I hear any "beeps" to indicate an incoming call?

    I am able to use a normal handset phone but when I try to use my "office provided" T10 amplifier & headset turning it up to where others can hear me makes a squealing noise. I have spoken to my phone provider AT&T and they mentioned the frequency of the T10 may not be high enough for interference. BEFORE I purchase another phone, are there any other recommendations. FYI I tried plugging a hands free headset into normal handset phone and got loud static.

The earpiece will make 3 short beeps when a call is incoming. Also the phone will still ring if you are within distince to hear the ringer. Hope this helps! SM

Hi, one of our Call Center workers cannot hear the ringing phone when she has the headset onWhat's your problem?


The ring from the telephone is picked up by the internal microphone on the HL10 Handset Lifter, typically for most phones, the lifter sits directly over the speaker grill on the telephone where the sound comes out. For telephones that curve out on the left side and don't have a straight edge, there is an accessory called a "Ring Detector" which is used. Here's a link:

HL10 Nortel Adapter Kit - 46780-01

If the internal mic on the lifter has gone out, you can plug the ring detector into the handset lifter and just stick the ring detector over the speaker grill to pick up the ring. Plugging this into the lifter will bypass the internal mic, this accessory would have come with your HL10 lifter. You can also check the ring volume on the telephone, and you can also try adjusting the ring tone on the phone (sometimes it will pick up one ring tone better than another). Here is a link below if you need to order a new ring detector:

DELAY WHEN RECEIVING A CALL


I'm assuming you are using a Plantronics HL10 handset lifter. The lifer is what notifies your headset that it has an incoming call. Try turning the ringer volume up on your phone first and see if that solves the problem. If that does not help, it could be the sensor on the lifter is going out. This could be causing a delay in the response time. The lifter ships with a ring detector that has a 2.5mm jack on one end and a small round microphone on the other end. You could try plugging this into the back of the lifter and setting the microphone next to where the lifter is mounted on your phone. This might help in picking up the sound of the phones ring tones. If that doesn't help you might consider replacing the lifter.

I have a CS70 NC./ no lifter. What is the set up procedure to use my headset without lifting my phone handset. With the base plugged into the headset port of the phone.


If the Plantronics CS70N wireless headset is plugged into the headset jack on your phone, you will need to push the headset button on the phone and then the call/control button on the wireless headset.

I cannot here the phone ringing from my CS55 headset or another call coming in.


You will need the Plantronics HL10 handset lifter in order to have the CS55 ring, indicating an incoming call. The HL10 also allows you to answer remotely on most phones and hang-up remotely.

I usually can hear the phone ring through my headset but now it is not letting me hear the ring tone? Help!


That function is performed by the built-in microphone of the handset lifter. It gets it's signal from the speaker vibrations inside the phone. You want to make sure that the phone rings loud enough. If that microphone has gone bad, your handset lifter came with an accessory package that contains an external microphone that you can connect to the back of the lifter to increase sensitivity.

Cannot hear phone ringing in headset, only on handset.


The HL10 handset lifer is what notifies your headset that you have an incoming call. If you are using the handset lifter and are not receiving the 3 short beeps in your ear piece there are a couple different things that could be going on.
1. The internal microphone could have gone out on the lifter. This microphone is what sends the signal to your headset that you have an incoming call. If the microphone is working you will hear 3 short beeps in your headset.
2. If the volume is too low on your telephone, the handset lifter will not notify the headset of an incoming call, so try turning the volume up on your phone and see if that takes care of the problem.
3. The HL10 handset lifter ships with a ring detector that has a 2.5mm jack on one end and a small round microphone on the other end. This ring detector is intended for phones that do not have the speaker located under the handset. You could try plugging this into the back of the lifter and setting the microphone next to where the lifter is mounted on your phone. This might help pick up the sound of the phones ring tone.

If you are manually lifting your handset out of the cradle and sitting it to the side instead of using a lifter, then you will not receive the 3 short beeps in your earpiece to notify you of an incoming call.

GN Netcom 9120 unexplained beeping


Actually what she was hearing was the ring tone in her headset when a incoming call comes in. The sensitivity on the handset lifter that picks up the ringing on a incoming call was set all the way up and was picking up interferance from the headset base as they have the tendency to buzz when placed right next to the phone. I just turned down the ringer sensitivity with the adjustment on the handset lifter and that took care of the problem. Thanks for your time.

Turn on the wireless headset as soon as the HL10 lifter picks up the headset. Remember to press the call answer switch. A steady green light should come on the base and the wireless headset should have a small green blinking light on, on its side.

* Make sure your hand receiver is off the hook when using the headset. Also check that you hear a dial tone on the handset/hand receiver before turning on the headset.

Remote ring detection provides a low tone * triple beep in your wireless headset when you receive an incoming call. This feature requires a handset lifter accessory, such as the Plantronics HL1 or HL10. If you do have a handset lifter but do not hear the remote ring detection, please check the following:

  • Check the placement of the lifter. - Make sure the handset lifter positioned directly over the phone's speaker.

  • Try adjusting the phone's ringer volume. If the phone's ringer is too quiet, it may not trigger the ring detection built into the lifter. Try turning up the ringer volume of your phone.

  • Check the ring tone of the phone. - If your phone's ring tone provides short beeps or plays music, the lifter's microphone may not detect it. Try switching your ring tone to a traditional ring or long beep.

  • Does the phone have different rings? - For example internal calls vs external calls vs transferred calls. Does the phone ring the same for each type of these calls. If so try changing so all calls use the same tone.

  • Attach the optional "external ring detector" cable. This cable plugs into the lifter and provides a small, black microphone. It is included in the plastic bag of lifter accessories. Mount the microphone near your telephone's speaker. Click here for more details.

  • There are 2 versions of the Lifter accessory - HL10 and HL1. The HL1 is a larger older version of the liter with a more sensitive rind detector. Some phones will require the older version of the lifter.

  • Please view the On Line Compatibility Guide to see if the older version (HL1) will be required for your phone.


*Please note the volume of notification beep in the headset cannot be altered, it will always be a low tone triple beep .
