How do I Decipher Plantronics Date Codes on Corded Headsets?

These numbers are Plantronics’ date codes. Here’s an example:

11-05 H10NA

The 11-05 is simply a month and year of manufacture, in this case 11/05 or November 2005.

The H is for H series (or P for Polaris)

The number is indicative of the model:

Starset 3

Mirage 4

Supra 5

Binaural 6

Tristar 8

Encore 9

Enc. Bin. 10

Freehand 13

DUOSET 14

DUOPRO 17

SupraPlus 25

SupraPlu Bin 26

SupraPlus 35

SupraPlus Bin 36

So the number in this case indicates that this is an Encore binaural

The NA means it is Noise Canceling.

You see, we can learn quite a bit from that date code! My mystery headset is an H101N!

The complete key for these codes is in the “attachments” field as an excel spreadsheet.

Headsets manufactured by Plantronics before 1995 have a bit different coding procedure,

which is also in the excel spreadsheet.
