Well, in one side of the device, there is a button which you can press it either in the top or at the bottom, if the device is on, press it on the top

    Oh, sorry for posting again, but if it doesn't work you can do it by raising your phone's volume. I do it either way.

We are using the Plantronics CS55 wireless headsets. The users are complaining that the '3-beep' incoming call alert tones are too loud. We have tried to adjust this tone level by manipulating...


Lowering the ring volume on the phone only decreases the sensitivity of the lifter, which generates the signal to the headset. The signal volume between the two is preset and cannot be adjusted.

My headset was working fine but all of a sudden the volume will not stay at the level I turn it up to. It keeps rolling back down to barely any sound coming through. I try to use the button on headset but...


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. Your Logitech ClearChat Pro USB Headset's volume will not stay at the level you turn it up to, and as a result it keeps rolling back down to a lower sound quality. Your volume control button doesn't solve the problem neither. Well, when a problem occurs, you should first troubleshoot where it's coming from. We will use a method called "Process of elimination". Your headset's volume has two controls: one control is on the headset itself, and the other control is located in the sound settings of the device you have your headset plugged into. With this thought in mind, lets go up to the problem explanation above. You said that the volume control attached to the headset didn't make a difference, this means the you can eliminate the hypothesis that it's the volume control causing this. The problem is coming from the earphone portion of the headset. Either a mute setting has been activated, volume is turned down real low or your headset is not the default device to receive sound input. The first part of the investigation is done; now, to get further into the investigation, you will need to connect your headset to your computer. This is where troubleshooting and solving the problem meet. Step-by-Step, I am going to explain to you how to get audio presentations into your headset. This device works with two Windows Operating Systems (Vista and XP) and one Mac Operating System (OS X). If your computer's operating system is Windows, open your Control Panel. Under the Hardware & Sound link, click Manage Audio Devices (for Vista users), and the Sound & Audio Devices link (for XP users). If your coumputer's operating system is Mac OS X, open your System Preferences and click the Sound link. In Windows Vista, click the name of your device, then click Set Default. Click the Properties button and increase the volume slider or unmute the volume if needed. If applicable, click the Apply button, then click OK. If the Apply button is void, just click OK. Click the Recording tab and perform the same procedures as you did before, only difference is that this will make your headset microphone the default recording device. In Windows XP, click the Audio tab and set the headset as the Sound Playback and Recording device. Increase the volume or unmute it if needed. When finished, click the Voice tab and perform the same procedures as you did before. In Mac OS X, click the Input tab and select the headset as the input device. If you still can barely hear anything, increase the volume slider. When finished, click the Output tab and repeat the same steps as before; only thing, you will be making this the sound output device, meaning the sound of your voice will be outputed from the microphone. Increase the volume slider if needed. You should be able to receive sound in and out of your headphones now. If we succeded, through this experience we have: troubleshooted where the problem was coming from, found a way to solve it and fixed the problem!

• Point microphone towards your chin.
• Listening volume too high on phone. If your phone has a handset

Genius HS-03U Volume Control Help


It's not fixable.

Set as default audio unit to "USB audio device", because Genius HS-03U control the volume only sound device by default.
Headphones improperly trying to adjust the volume of "alien" audio devices, such as second sound card, if it is selected as the audio output device by default.

I am getting feedback with Plantronics CS70 Wireless Headset


Echo is usually caused by the transmit (speak) level on the unit being set too high.

1. First, try lowering the volume of the telephone. If you still hear an echo, adjust the volume of the headset itself.

2. The master transmit controls of the headset are the ABCD switch settings on the bottom of the base. A is the lowest and D is the highest setting.

3. You can fine tune this setting with the plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the back of the charging base.

4. If this doesn't fix the echo, try moving the configuration dial on the left side of the charging base. The recommended setting for most phones is 1.

Mic Volume Auto Sets Too Low


Delete the registry files for the devices and then uninstall the driver from device manager and then uninstall the software.

That worked for me.

Volume trouble


The top button on the control surface, the one with the green flashing LED, is the volume control. When the unit is "ON" pushing the button up or down raises or lowers the volume, simple. When you connect it to the charger that same green light will turn red while charging. If you push the top button forward (up) at the same time you press the lower button (power) the LED will flash 1-3 times. Three flashes is fully charged and one means it's getting low.

This is a great head set. I just sat on mine and broke the ear piece. I'm looking for another as we speak! It's worth more than it's current retail price by far!!!

Echo when using the headset


If you are having echo problems while not on a call (you are wearing the headset, it is active, but you are not currently on the phone with anyone), there are 3 ways to counteract this: -When you are done with a call, you can click your Multifunction button on your headset (middle one inbetween the volume controls). -Move the microphone away from your mouth when you are not on a call. -A more permanent solution: decrease the sensitivity of your microphone. To do this, click and hold the increase and decrease volume buttons on your headset ( + & - ) for 3 seconds. Let the buttons up after 3 seconds and push the lower volume button 2 or 3 times. Wait 6 more seconds and it will beep at you. After you have done this, make a call to someone in the office to be sure the sensitivity has not been lowered so much that others can?t hear you.
