  • Plantronics CS70 not receiving beep on incoming calls

    We have a customer who has two brand new Plantronic CS70 headsets. The only thing not working is they don't hear a beep in the headset when they get an incoming call.

    Any ideas?

    You may need the "Plantronics Ring Detector" to get this to work..

      That is the way it is, you will get one Call Waiting Beep in the Headset unless you have a ring detector.

        Make sure the personal call manager is set to wireless headset as well.

          Thank you for the information.

          We had set the call manager to wireless headset but was not aware of a ring detector. I will inform the customer.

          Thanks again.

            Ring Detector

            Ring detector is "RD-1," part 78887-01. We paid about $16 each through

            The unit plugs into the base of the CS70 (and maybe other models, but we use the CS70N) and has a very low-gain self-stick microphone about 1/2" diameter which attaches to the phone. If the phone ringer is set "loud" it will work stuck discreetly "under" the speaker, else you have to attach it to front.
