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.
