The Plantronics S11 headset system needs to be plugged into the handset jack on your phone not the headset jack. There is a jack on the back of the S11 system where the curly cord from your handset will plug into. That should fix your problem.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Logitech speaker feedback


Feedback is a sharp, loud noise that can come through the earphones of a headset unexpectedly---it occurs when the headset is getting sound (feed) from someone else speaking or playing music into a microphone. This sound can create a dangerous situation for someone who is operating expensive equipment or flying a plane at the time since it can disable hearing temporarily.
If you experience feedback often, it could also lead to serious hearing problems.

Mic Too Close to the Speaker or Volume Too High
The main cause of a feedback sound in a headset is proximity to a speaker. If a person holding a microphone on the other end gets too close to a speaker, it creates a loop of re-amplified sound that results in the loud, screeching noise. When the volume on the other party's microphone is too high, it is more vulnerable to picking up unwanted noise and feedback from speakers and sound output devices in the room. So make sure that you ask the other party to turn down the microphone to a normal level and stay far from speakers. b> Two Microphones Gathering Same Sound b> When the other party places two microphones too close to each other, it could cause feedback. When positioned toward the sound source (such as a person speaking) the microphones will both pick up the same audio and compete with each other when creating the output of sound, causing a sharp noise in your headset. This problem, called acoustic phase interference, is resolved by simply ensuring that the other party uses one microphone at a time. Poor-Quality Headset or Microphone b> One common cause of feedback is simply a poor-quality headset or microphone. Most modern headsets and microphones have noise-canceling features that manage and kill feedback before it has a chance to occur. These noise-canceling headsets are essential for pilots and aviation crew members. If you hear sudden feedback that is strong enough to hurt your ears, the headset or microphone is simply not properly equipped to actively cancel that unwanted noise before it hits your ears. Buy a higher-quality noise-canceling headset to manage the feedback noise when you're going about your tasks. Hope this helps.

My Turtle Beach Headset P11's are brand new, everything is plugged in correctly, as I can hear my friends talking when in a party together, however when I talk they can barely hear me if they can even...


Double check that you are all in the same party. If you are not in the party and they are you will sound very quiet to them. It almost sounds like you are in the background. So go and make sure you can join the party. If that does not solve it go into your settings and double check that mic volumes and everything are all up.

I can hear the other person but they can't hear me


Your headset may be muted. Try to unmute the call. The mute function is enabled through the volume buttons. Simply tap both volume buttons at the same time until you hear a mute tone. The mute tone when unmuting the call will be a descending tone. When you tap both volume buttons, if you hear a descending tone you have just disabled the mute function and your problem is solved. If the mute tone is ascending tones you have just enable the mute function and this was not the issue. If this is the case consult your user manual or contact Motorola for trouble shooting.

I can hear my voice in my headsets..its very loud..if I blow into the mic..its like an actual live mic


all headsets feature what I think is called side tone. you need to hear a bit of yourself when speaking on a microphone as a bit of communication reassurance. When thew microphone level is up way too loud , that's more than side tone, it's annoyance that's when you get the problem that you've listed. I've seen it on telephone headsets and Mobile Phones but i'm sure it would happen on gaming headsets too...
Good Luck

When i try to talk threw my headset the other person cant hear me but i can hear my self talk on it


Could be that the headset has been muted by accident. To unmute, tap both volume buttons at the same time until you hear a tone or kind of beep.

Person on the other end receives a bad feed back when I am talki


This may be caused by a few things.

1. Check the configuration dial on the left hand side of the base to see if another setting works better. The recommended setting for most phones is 1.

2. Make sure your speaking (transmit) level is not too high. First, try lowering the volume on the telephone. If you still hear distortion, adjust the volume of the headset. 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.

3. Double check the battery has a full charge.

The Amber Charge light on the base will flash while charging and will stay solid amber when fully charged.

3 hours = full charge

4. Make sure the headset has been paired to the base.

New Phone Causing Echo


It sounds like your microphone volume is too loud. Get someone on a call with you so they can tell you how it sounds as you adjust it. Turn down the mic volume by pressing the + & - buttons on the earpiece together once which puts the earpiece into mic adjust mode. Then decrease the mic volume by pressing the minus button a few times until it sounds right. The earpiece will automatically revert to normal mode within a few seconds.
If this doesn't work it may be that you need to adjust the compatibility setting for the new phone. This is the small black dial on the base station. The most common setting is 'A' but you may need to experiment with other settings for that phone.
