Can I connect my Baha 4 Sound Processor to a cordless dect phone?

Question: I have a Baha 4 Sound Processor and a Phone Clip. I have an iPhone 5 which I can connect to my Phone Clip, but have been advised to purchase a dect phone which is bluetooth compatible. Can you advise which is the best and cheapest please, or any other options? Thank you! //Tracey

Answer: Dear Tracey,

Fantastic that you are benefiting from your Baha 4 Sound Processor and your iPhone!

Yes, if you wish to connect your phone clip to your “dect phone” (cordless home phone), you will need to make sure that it is bluetooth compatible. Luckily, there are many models from different manufacturers (such as Motorola, Uniden, Vtech and Panasonic, to name a few). It is difficult for us to recommend a particular brand and model as these vary greatly by country and region.

I would suggest that you look at what phones can connect easily with an external “bluetooth headset” and they will then connect with the phone clip. The phone clip is essentially a bluetooth headset between your phone and the Baha sound processor. You could also take your phone clip into a store such as “Best Buy” or “Dixons” and test which phones are easiest to detect and connect.

  1. Enter your comment here…Hi! My name’s Cheryl and I’m blind. I upgraded to the BP 5 and also got the phone clip to use with my iPhone. The problem is, that all the manuals I’ve looked at don’t really tell you what and where all the buttons are on the clip. I have the instructions on how to pair the clip with my sound processor and how to pair it with my phone, but the thing is, I don’t know which button is the one to pair with either. I found the tiny one to pair with the phone, but I don’t know where the button is to pair it with the phone. Plus, I have no clue as to what the other buttons, sliders and such are, so some help would be lovely to describe where everything is. I don’t even know which button is to turn on the clip. Thanks in advance!
