Electronic Hook Switches (EHS) communicate electronically with your phone giving your wireless headset answer/end and ring alerts remotely. The use of an EHS cable eliminates the need for an HL10 handset lifter.
Plantronics has several EHS adapters, each being unique to a specific telephone and wireless product. We strongly suggest confirming compatibility before purchasing.
Compatible with the following headsets:
CS500 Series: CS510, CS520, CS530, CS540, and all -XD variants
Savi Series: W710, W720, W730, W730, W740, W745 and all -M variants
