Plantronics Quick Disconnect Cable (QD)


Plantronics “QD” stands for Plantronics Quick Disconnect.

The Plantronics QD (quick disconnect) is a proprietary connector featured on the Plantronics H-Series and Plantronics P-series headsets. It connects the headset to the matching cable providing in a simple user friendly but reliable connection. It allows the user to disconnect the headset if needed during a call and reconnect; this is similar to placing the call on hold.

This is a feature that allows you to walk away from the telephone without having to remove the headset.
