Towards the bottom of the page, click on the tab labeled ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. Within that section, you will see PLANTRONICS CS50/CS55 INTERACTIVE USERS GUIDE to click on. This will help you visually see how to setup and start using your CS55.

Reset Plantronics CS50, CS60 or CS55 Wireless Headset
If you have problems with the sound or connection of your Plantronics CS50, CS60 or CS55 wireless phone headset, you may want to try to hard reset it using the following steps:
Note: Ensure the IntelliStand switch (on the right side of the charging base) is in the - position and NOT the = position.
1. Press both the call control button and the listening volume/mute button for 5 seconds. When the indicator light blinks release both buttons.
2. Press the call control button again. The talk indicator light will again blink to indicate the headset is back to normal.
3. Disconnect the AC charger from the AC charging jack for 5 seconds.
James, plug the phone cord that comes out of the back of the CS55 base into the handset port of the Cisco phone, not the headset port. Then plug the coily cord from the cisco receiver into the front of the CS55. Don't use the "Headset" button on your Cisco phone, just lift the receiver off.
