Plantronics CT12 2.4 GHz Cordless Headset Telephone


The single-line Plantronics CT12 2.4GHz Cordless Headset Telephone combines a two-mode headset (wear it over your head or on one ear) and a phone with 5.5 hours of continuous talk time per battery charge. The flashing red usage indicator light should...

Plantronics CT12 Cordless Phone


Because cellular phones have become omnipresent in everyday life it's rather odd to come home to a phone that doesn't offer the same features. Corded phones, for one, seem so Alexander Graham Bell. Still there are cordless phones, but why do they have...

PLANTRONICS CT12 2.4 GHz Digital 1X Handsets Cordless Headset Telephone - Retail


Very nice headset. The sound quality is tops. The phone unit is about the size of a beeper. Oh, and the price was very reasonable.

I wish you could talk with the main unit in hte charger. I am not sure why Playtronics designed it that you could not.

Do not buy this phone if you have a wireless network


Wish I knew before I purchased.

This is an excellent cordless hands-free phone as long as you do not have any other wireless devices at home.

I have been using this phone for several days now and I have a wireless network at home. This phone completely shuts down my entire wireless network.

Would buy another


Wish there was a way to charge the phone while using it. Wish there was a bit more noise reduction; especially for wind noise (I like to work from my backyard). In order to mute you have to hold down the button for 3 seconds.

Headset is very comfortable. Mic picks up the wearers voice very well and does a respectable job of not picking up other sounds. Range is a bit better than other 2.4 ghz phones I've had. Well, built...survives falls from waist level (see con). Battery...

It doesn't take much to detach the belt clip from the phone. Maybe my wife and I are just clumsier than normal people but the phone has hit the floor several times. LED on the mic could be brighter. It's not pictured (in specifications say "two in...

nice phone


This would be a great product if they would do away with the cord and make it bluetooth a headset

very good range and sound quality. no trouble so far with the headset or the phone

When walking around the house the cord often gets caught and gets pulled off and crashes to the floor. It does have clip so you can hang the cord down your back

top notch


freedom of movement, good range range, excellent sound quality, useful memory functions, long battery life.

I wish I could put the phone into the cradle and charge it while talking.

Loving cordless headset


Good range, has always worked throughout the house.

If you don't have it on when you receive a call, it can be rather entertaining to try to quickly get the headset on.

Great Phone


Several cordless phones I have owned in the past (all more expensive) could be used while charging. This would be a wonderfull addition to this phone.

Extremely long range away from base. The phone works well 200+ yards away from my house at the local park. Small size is great clipped on belt, in pocket, etc.

The phone can not be used while charging in the cradle.

One of the best phones!


better clip to keep it on my belt!

I have already had one for over 2 years. After droping it 100 times and under water several. It was time for a new one. I will never go basck to a standard phone again.
