About the Cisco Headset 500 Series The Cisco Headset 500 Series is a family of headsets optimized for Cisco IP Phones, Cisco DX devices, Cisco Jabber, and Cisco Webex Meetings. The Cisco Headset 521, 522, 531, 532, 561, and 562 offer reliable, high-quality sound in noisy office environments.
USB connection. What to do next Your headsets function with full call control capabilities on a Cisco IP Phone without any changes through Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration. However, some headset features are only available after activation by a Cisco Unified CM Administrator. See Cisco Headset Administration, on page 11 more information.
Step 2 Do one of these actions. • If you want to use the USB cable with the Cisco Headset 560 Series, plug in to a USB port on a Cisco IP Phone 8851, 8851NR, 8861, 8865, or 8865NR. • If you want to use the Y-cable with the Cisco Headset 560 Series, plug the smaller RJ-9 cable into the headset port and the larger RJ-11 cable into the AUX port.
Cisco Headset 500 Series Set Up Deploy Your Cisco Headset 560 Series Step 3 You can connect a second call device with the Cisco Headset 560 Series with Multibase. Connect the mini-USB cable into the left port on the back of the base. Note For best call quality, use the standard USB cable with a Cisco IP Phone and the mini-USB cable with a laptop or other call device.

• **This feature is not supported in the 12.0.x and 12.5(1) releases. • N/A When you upgrade to Unified CM 11.5(1)SU7 or higher from an earlier version, most Cisco IP Phones will upgrade automatically to Phone Firmware 12.5(1)SR3 or higher versions.
• **This feature is not supported in the 12.0.x and 12.5(1) releases. Workflow: Configure Headset Serviceability Use the following workflow to guide you through the setup of your Cisco Headset Serviceability feature. After you complete this workflow, you can configure headset settings, headset firmware load, DECT frequency, and additional features.
Cisco Headset service should be activated on all the Unified Communications Manager nodes wherever Cisco CallManager service is already running. Ensure that you activate the Cisco Headset service on the Unified Communications Manager nodes where you want to administer headsets using the Cisco Unified CM Administration interface.
Configure User Profiles for Headset Users Note Ensure that the Cisco Headset service is up and running before the COP file is installed. Ensure that the headset COP file is installed on all nodes of Unified Communications Manager. 1. Install or upgrade the COP file to the Unified Communications Manager system before you can start using your Cisco headsets.
Cisco Headset Administration Apply User Profiles to End Users Procedure Step 1 From Cisco Unified CM Administration, choose User Management > User/Phone Add > User Profile. Step 2 Click Add New. Step 3 Enter a Name and Description for the user profile.
You can assign headset templates to user profiles in Unified Communications Manager to configure default headset settings for your users when their Cisco IP Phone resets. Users may override their individual headset settings from their Cisco IP Phone. Unified Communications Manager supports two types of headset templates: Standard Default Headset Configuration Template This is the system default template that contains the factory default settings for all headset model series.
This template is displayed as System Generated Custom Headset Template in the Cisco Unified CM Administration interface. All the existing users and devices will be still associated to this custom template after the upgrade.
Controls the use of the conferencing feature on the Cisco Headset 560 Series. Conferencing allows up to three guest headsets to pair with the same base at once. See Cisco Headset 500 Series User Guide for more information on conferencing. Firmware Source Allow from UCM or Allow Controls the headset's firmware upgrade source.
Work for the Cisco Headset 560 Series. Configure a Headset Template Use this procedure to configure a headset template with customized settings that you can apply to Cisco headsets. You can create a customized template or use the system-defined Standard Default Headset Template. Note The Standard Default Headset Configuration Template is a system-defined template.
Headset Inventory Settings From Cisco Unified CM Administration, use the Device > Headset > Headset Inventory window to view a full list of all headsets deployed on your server. You can use this information to generate reports for all deployed headsets.
Name of the device to which the headset is connected to. Device Model Displays the Cisco IP Phone or Cisco Jabber model number. For example, CP-8865 is a Cisco IP Phone model.
