I use this as an over-the-head set and I don't use the little silicon ear insert, I use the over-the-ear cushion, and it is very comfortable. I spend 3-4 hours on the phone per day as I telecommute: comfortable; good battery life for my use; great range throughout the house. My only gripe keeping this from a 5 is the Mute button. The mute should have been a separate button from the volume control. Pressing down on it can something create a double-click, and you aren't always sure if it is enabled or not. I sometime have to press it several times to make sure it is engaged. On the CS55, there was a faint little beep to tell you Mute is engaged, on this head set none.

I do not like this product. The previous headset was much more comfortable and easy to settle into your ear. The ear piece does not hold tight to ear and the ear piece won't "seat" into ear canal. Very easy to knock off. Bring the old ear piece back...

Works FINE until you receive another phone call

By Alex894

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about Plantronics CS520 Headset:

I work in a high call volume office and when our previous headset fell apart, we ordered this upgraded version. It works fine, there's clarity in the phone call UNTIL there's another phone call then it makes an AWFUL sound like when you get a microphone next to a speaker. It hurts my ear and loses connection with my clients.

Good headset, poor quality construction

By AnthonyL

from Undisclosed

Comments about Plantronics CS520 Headset:

Call quality = good Comfort = good Ease of use = good Construction = poor After only using this product for 9 months, the over the head bracket broke off. The inside is metal construction, but the plastic connecting the rubber head brace to the headset snapped in half.

Headset nice, earloop needs much improvement

By donyabelle

from Cleveland OH

Comments about Plantronics CS520 Headset:

The whole purpose of a headset is to be able to use both hands while talking on the phone for extended periods of time. This is a very nice headset, however, the rigid ear loop is painful immediately when put on. The thin foam cushion does nothing to improve the comfort of the rigid plastic ear loop on the back of the ear. A softer, more flexible material should be used for the ear loop itself or supply a softer, denser foam cushion. Also, the one-size-fits-all ear tip does not fit well in the ear. Needs better shape and possibly small, medium and large sizing to fit various size ear canals.

lite weight !

By Leol

Comments about Plantronics CS520 Headset:

I've had this for a month and just love it. The way it connects to the phone makes it easier for my co-worker to use the hand set more comfortably w/out pulling the phone. The head set is light weight and fits well over my head and does not hurt my ear.

Comments about Plantronics CS520 Headset:

This is my secon plantronics headset and love it. Very easy to setup and volume adjustment is very nice. Love this headset! It helps me and other users to conduct business and talk at the same time, while needing to use both hands.

Helpful tool

By SAV helper

from Green Valley, AZ, United States

Comments about Plantronics CS520 Headset:

I bought this item to use where I volunteer. We have several volunteers who answer the phone and need to take down information from callers. Having this ear device has made it easier to use both hands and not have to cradle the phone on our shoulders, which is not healthy. The calls come loud and clear and I like being able to move around and not be hindered by a cord.

Comments about Plantronics CS520 Headset:

I bought 6 more of these after purchasing 16 of them with the lifters. Sound quality is great even when going one floor up from the office.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
