CS500 Series: How to Subscribe (Pair) a Headset to the Base (Video)

The headset and base unit are subscribed to each other right out of the box. If you need to use a replacement headset with the base, you have to subscribe (or introduce) it to the base.

Procedure

There are two ways to subscribe your headset to the base: automatic secure subscription, and manual (also called over-the-air) subscription.

Automatic Secure Subscription

To automatically subscribe a headset to the base:

Simply dock your headset in the base. The power/subscription light (the white light on the base) flashes during the subscription process and glows solid when the headset pairs successfully.

Note: Only the last paired headset will work, so you will have to repeat this process whenever you need to use a different headset with the system.

Manual/Over-the-Air Subscription

To manually subscribe a headset to the base:
  1. Start with the base in idle mode, and the headset undocked.
  2. Press and hold the subscription button on the base until the power/subscription indicator light flashes.
  3. Push the multifunction toggle in the volume (+) position until the headset's indicator light turns on solid.
  4. When the headset's indicator light turns solid and the base's power/subscription indicator light stops flashing, the subscription is complete.
