Plantronics CS70N Wireless Headset


Journalists, stockbrokers, and phone sex workers have one thing in common: We all spend a lot of time on the phone, making cauliflower ear and a permanently

Review: Plantronics CS70N Wireless Headset – Because being stuck at your desk sucks


All right, All right … so you're sitting there thinking to yourself, who starts a review of what is obviously a professional product with a title like that. Well, for one – I do, and for two, it got your attention didn't it?

Up a Phone Without a Crick-The Plantronics CS70N


I've always been an early adopter in a late adopter workplace. When I brought my Mac SE into work from home so that I could use Filemaker to develop my own databases and phone lists, it was the first PC in a company of 200+ employees. And it remained...

Plantronics CS70N Wireless Headset System with Lifter


I highly recommend this item to anyone who is considering the purchase of a wireless headset. I was able to install everything within minutes and was able to use the headset after letting it charge for a mere 20 minutes. I initially questioned whether...

Plantronics CS70N Wireless Headset System with Lifter


This headset is comfortable easy to use easy and to setup and works really well. I have no overall complaints with the headset although I do feel Plantronic's sometimes takes advantage of their place as the best in the market by charging as such.
