Questions on Plantronics HW251N
From Jacob at 7/29/2014 8:00 PM
Q: We have Polycom VVX 500 and 335HD phones with Plantronic HW251N, HW261N and HW301N headsets. The headsets have the QD/ED connection. We have tried various cables into the phone and, so far, have failed to get the headsets to work.
One compatibility list I have said that U10p variants are compatibile, so I ordered some U10p-S19 cables, but they do not work at all.
We have some A10-16 cables which allow us to hear people calling in, but we cannot talk.
27190-01 cables were also noted. Can you give any help regarding this?
Would you take trades for cables we have to discount cables we need?
A: We use them with Polycom Soundpoint IP 550's and they work great!
Q: I am noticing that an amplifier might be needed for the Plantronics HW251N to work with a Polycom VVX500 phone. Do you know if this is the case?
Currently trying to use the headset with the VVX500 phone now (connected via the RJ-9 plug into the Headset port (looks like RJ-11) on the back of the phone. But the audio is very low on both ends, though.
A: Have you checked all your settings on the phone? Also what kind of QD connecting cord are you using? Sometimes if it is not he correct cord it could effect audio levels.
Q: My company has approved the purchase of the HW251 w/amp but they won't approve the "bluetooth" style. I was wondering if when I got the HW251 would it come apart (so to speak) and if you offered a conversion kit. I don't know if I am going to like that band going across my head for 8 hours a day :-)
A: There are other corded headsets that have different wearing styles from Plantronics. I will have a VoIP Supply specialist reach out to you directly to make sure you get the proper solution.
