For years, Plantronics has produces some of the best wired and wireless headsets that we have used here at Legit Reviews. Last month, they introduced a new professional headset system designed for busy professionals who can’t afford to be tied down to their desks with old school technology.
In the past we have evaluated many of their Bluetooth headsets that they have released on the market, but today we mix it up a bit (sort of like the Lakers’ first draft pick) and evaluate this $400 luxury system. I say luxury, but in reality, dropping this kind of money for certain companies and workers is not that big of a deal. If you are on the phone all day in an office environment, then you will want something that is comfortable to wear and is built solid.
The CS70N is Plantronics’ Third-Generation wireless professional headset system. It’s a “system” since it works as an integral part of your existing office phone.

This Plantronics design ensures that comfort level.

It could be like talking to a person in a huge tunnel or the person just doesn’t want to speak into the microphone. Or if you have called a help desk and you could hear a conversation or all the noise in the background clearly. If you are a business, you want to hear and be heard clearly.
The Plantronics CS70N features a boom and active noise-cancelling microphone that is designed to eliminate background noise in loud office environments. This noise reduction technology is built on digitally encrypted, voice-dedicated DECT 6.0 technology.
DECT, which stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications, is the standard for cordless communications in public, residential, and corporate environments. This technology is being used in all countries in Europe and has only been in us in the
