Intermittent buzzing or humming can be caused by electrical equipment located in the immediate area of the telephone and headset system, such as fluorescent lighting, computers, fax machines, typewriters, and power strips (surge protectors). Frequently, power cords and cables that are bundled together will cause buzzing. The best solution is to keep this type of equipment separated from the headset, amplifier and telephone.

There are several factors that could be causing a buzz or humming on a headset. A lot depends on what model you are using.

1) If you’re using a Plantronics corded headset and a Plantronics Vista M12/Plantronics Vista M22 Amplifers

Go to the slide switch settings on the left hand side of the Plantronics Vista M12/M22. In some cases it should be set at 6 rather than 5. If that does not help the situation, the problem could be environmental, from electrical devices in your area. It could also be a compatibility issue with your telephone.

2) If you’re using a Plantronics Wireless Headsets such as the Plantronics CS540, CS510, Savi W740, W710
