Plantronics Polycom EHS Instructions

Note: Make sure no other headsets are connected to the phone when installing EHS cable

  1. Start in the phone settings of the Polycom Phone.

  2. We want to be on a different phone then the one we are connecting the EHS into. The phone may reboot after this set-up instructions! This will disconnect the call!

    Changing phone settings:

  • Click on the menu or home button
  • Choose Option 3 (Settings)
  • Choose Option 1 (Basic)
  • Choose Option 1 (Preferences)
  • Choose Option 3 (Headset) In some models this will be option 4. verify using the title “headset”
  • Check Headset Memory Mode-- Should Be Disabled
  • Go back a step in menu and select Option 2 Hookswitch Mode (Older phones may say Analog Mode) and set it to Poly EHS (may also say "Plantronics EHS"), and the phone should reboot.
