It is the handset lifter that actually picks up the ring tone from the telephone, and not the CS50 itself. The first thing that you want to do is make sure that the ring tone or ring volume didn't change on the phone, because this could throw off how the lifter "hears" it. Also, I'm not sure which lifter your user has.. if it's the larger HL1 (this one has a base that the phone sits on), there is a sensitivity adjustment on the back of the lifter. If is the smaller HL10 which sticks onto the phone (and should be positioned over the speaker grill where the ring tone comes out of the phone), the internal mic may have stopped working and that could be why it doesn't hear the ring anymore. If you have the HL10, you can try using a ring detector cable, this is a little accessory that should have come with your lifter (it looks like a wire with a small speaker on the end of it with double-sided tape). Plug this into the back of the HL10 (there are 2 jacks back there but it will only fit in one, you may need to remove the rubber plug), then stick the little speaker over the speaker grill on the telephone. If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the lifter. Here is a link below with a picture to take a look at the ring detector. Plantronics 46780 01 Ring Detector Cable PLX Headsets Direct

Perform a reset on the headset.  Hold down the mute button (the dial on the back of the headset needs to be pushed straight in), and at the same time hold down the call answer button until you see the green light on the headset blink a few times.  Release both the mute button and the call answer button.  See if it works now.  If it doesn't, try a re-subscription (should be available in the manual).

Try a system reset:
1.  Lift the headset off of the charging cradle, but make sure the headset is turned off.  It will be off if the green light on the front of the base is not lit.  If it's not, push the call answer button once to turn it off.
2.  Push the call answer button and the mute button at the same time and hold them down.  The mute button is the black little wheel at the top of the headset.  Use the tip of your finger to push it straight down and hold it while holding the call answer button.  A green light on the headset will flash for 2 series of flashes.  Wait until the end of the second series then let go of both buttons.
3.  Put the headset back on the charging cradle and wait 30 seconds.  Lift it back up and try to use it.  If this doesn't work, repeat one more time and then disconnect the power from the base and plug it back in.

You may need to re-subscribe the headset.

NOTE: Before re-subscribing the system make sure the IntelliStand switch (on the right side of the charging base) is in the "_" position and NOT the "=" position.

To Re-Subscribe:


The headset and the base unit are supplied subscribed to each other. However, if you wish to use a replacement headset with the base unit (or if you lose your connection to the base unit), then you must re-subscribe as follows:

1. Return the headset to the charging base.

2. Press and hold both the + and - buttons on the back of the charging base until the red light on the front of the base starts to flash.

3. Let go of both buttons. The red light should continue to flash.

4. Press the mute switch (black wheel on the top of the headset) straight down until a green light appears on the headset, then let go of the wheel, and the light should remain on the headset.

5. Resubscription is finished when the red light on the base is fully illuminated and the green light on the headset disappears.

6. Remove the headset from the charging base lift telephone handset/press headset button if not using a handset lifter. The headset and base should now be connected.

7. If this procedure does not resolve your issue to try a system reset.

My plantronics CS50 USB headset won't subscribe to the base, it just keeps giving 3 short beeps when the call button is pressed. Numerous attempts at resubscription and resetting have not had any...


I know this is an old post but I just want to share what I confirmed through Plantations. Hopefully it will help someone in the same situation. Sometimes, people buy replacements headsets and it should be noted the CS55 Headset does not pair with the CS50 base. While they headset looks identical, the only way to tell which headset you have is to open the battery cover and look under the battery. If you have a CS55 headset and a CS50 base, they will not pair.

Problem for Plantronics CS50 Wireless Headset - I can hear the person on the other end when the configuration dial is set to 1,2 or 3. But th other person cannot hear me. When I set the dial to 4, others...


The following is a cut from Plantronics web site. I hope it helps, It's just possible you have missed a setting, such as the mute switch.

The CS50 has both transmit (how you are heard) and Receive (how you hear) controls on the unit itself.

The Master Transmit controls are the ABCD switch settings on the bottom of the base. A is the lowest and D is the highest setting. You can fine tune this setting with the Plus (+) and minus (-) buttons on the back of the base that are above and below the picture of the microphone.

The Master Receive setting is on the back of the base (below the picture of the microphone) there is a 1234 switch 1 being the highest setting and 4 being the lowest setting. You can fine tune this setting by using the volume control on the headset itself. This is the rocker volume wheel on the back of the headset (opposite of the microphone).

The headset volume control also doubles as a mute switch if you press it in, instead of rocking it back and forth.

There are also configuration settings on the left hand side of the base. This is a dark grey dial with a 1234 on it. There are notches to the right of this dial. Whatever number is lined up with the notches it what setting you are on.
This needs to be set to the clearest setting.

There is a silver button on the headset itself which is your “Talk button”. This is what you press to use the headset and or transfer the call from the headset back to the hand receiver.

There is also a switch on the right hand side of the base which is your the IntelliStand feature.

When the CS50 is used in conjunction with the HL10 handset lifer you can enable the IntelliStand feature.

The IntelliStand feature senses when the headset has been removed or placed into the CS50 base unit which automatically activates the Handset Lifter and enabling headset/handset mode to answer or end the call.

There is a switch towards the bottom on the right side of the base unit that will switch the IntelliStand feature On and Off.

No beeping in ear piece


The microphone in the lifter was not centered over the microphone on my phone, so all I did was centered the lifter over the microphone, and it works.

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 .
