Connecting Jabra Engage 65 Headset to Yealink T46U Desk Phone (Zoom Phone)

The Jabra headset requires a Yealink EHS40 USB Headset Adapter and cable to connect to the Yealink T46U phone.

Steps to installing the Jabra Engage 65 headset to the Yealink T46U desk phone:

  1. On the bottom of the base of the Jabra Engage 65, turn the dial to position A.
  2. Press the green (answer) and red (hang up) buttons simultaneously for about 10 seconds to reset the Jabra base.
  3. Connect a USB cable between the computer and the Jabra Engage base to update firmware and configure the headset.
  4. Ensure that the headset is physically connected to the base (as if it is charging the headset).
  5. Download and install the Jabra Direct software
  6. Jabra Direct will detect that the Jabra Engage 65 headset needs a firmware upgrade. Upgrade the headset firmware to version 5.11.0. During firmware installation, the LEDs on the base and the headset will be purple. (takes a long time)
  7. After upgrading firmware, within Jabra Direct, select Headset, click on the headset photo and go to Settings.
  8. Select the DESK PHONE tab.
  9. Ensure that "Automatic detection of hook lifter type" is set to OFF.
