Important Headset Safety Information

High Sound Pressure—Avoid listening to high volume levels for long periods to prevent possible hearing damage.

When you plug in your headset, lower the volume of the headset speaker before you put the headset on. If you remember to lower the volume before you take the headset off, the volume will start lower when you plug in your headset again.

Be aware of your surroundings. When you use your headset, it may block out important external sounds, particularly in emergencies or in noisy environments. Don’t use the headset while driving. Don’t leave your headset or headset cables in an area where people or pets can trip over them. Always supervise children who are near your headset or headset cables.

Audio Quality

Beyond physical, mechanical, and technical performance, the audio portion of a headset must sound good to the user and to the party on the far end. Sound quality is subjective, and we cannot guarantee the performance of any third-party headset. However, various headsets from leading headset manufacturers are reported to perform well with Cisco IP Phones.

Cisco doesn't recommend or test any third-party headsets with their products. For information about third-party headset support for Cisco products, go to the manufacturer's web site.

Cisco does test the Cisco headsets with the Cisco IP Phones. For information about Cisco Headsets and Cisco IP Phone support, see
