Plantronics CS70N


A worthwhile investment for anyone who spends a lot of their day on the phone.

Light and comfortable to wear, Easy to set-up and use, Stylish design

Usage without the optional handset-lifter is annoying, Button placement could be placed in a more visual area, Pricey for infrequent users

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

Weighs less than an ounce. Simple on-off button engages headset (and answers the phone, with optional handset lifter). Works with standard office and IP phones. Estimated 6 hours of battery life is long enough for all but your most agonizing...

Volume buttons difficult to locate and press without mashing your tender ear cartilage. Secondary volume and microphone sensitivity controls are located, inexplicably, on the back of the base unit where they're equally hard to find

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?

You can read more about the CS70N on the Plantronics website and if you so desire it can be purchased directly from Plantronics as well.

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...

This Bluetooth headset from Plantronics offers hands-free calling for offices.


The CS70N is a convenient albeit not outstanding product. If you really need to get away from your desk while on the phone it is worth a look, but be prepared to pay top dollar.

Convenience factor, good audio quality

Expensive, chunky headset design, headset buttons are stiff, some echo when near walls

Plantronics CS70N Review


The headset itself is of modern compact design and is small and light enough – at just 22g – to be worn comfortably all day. Typical talk time is 5 or 6 hours if the headset is in continuous use, but the headset starts to charge as soon as it is...

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...

Very easy to set up, has great sound quality, and the convenience of being able to answer/end a call without touching the phone is fabulous

The earpiece itself could stand to be a bit smaller, but it is lightweight and comfortable enough for all-day use

Product Specifications

The Plantronics HL10 automatic handset lifter enables one-touch call answer/end for compatible Plantronics headset systems. It automatically lifts handset and returns it to the cradle. Enjoy the full mobility of cordless conversations. Roam around your workspace knowing that you'll be notified when a call is received-and you can answer and hang up whenever you choose. On most desktop phones, the HL10 lifts up and replaces the handset so you don't have to be at your desk to answer the phone or to hang up. Because the HL10 fits under the handset on your desktop phone, it requires no additional space on your desktop, and features the discreet, stylish design. This handset lifter is designed for Plantronics cordless CS50, CS10 and CA10 telephone headset systems, works with Plantronics S20 and A20 telephone headset systems.
