The Siemens SL78H is an accessory handset for the Siemens Gigaset SL785H. The Gigaset SL78H gives you additional mobility and flexibility by allowing you to have additional handset paired with your base station.
Part of what makes the Gigaset SL78H a smart premium design handset is its use of high-quality materials. The genuine metal frame and charger distinguishes the Gigaset SL78H from other handsets, creating a high-end aesthetic that is one of a kind. What’s more, the innovative user interface opens the door to a new era of instinctive menu navigation. And the brilliant TFT color display exemplifies the Gigaset SL78H’s high-class character, which sets it apart from the crowd.
The Gigaset SL78H offers twofold options for hands-free talking: either via the Bluetooth headset connection or the handset’s full duplex hands-free capabilities. Whatever you do while phoning, with the Gigaset SL78H you’ll revel in the freedom of sophisticated yet simple hands-free telephony.
Equipped with high-end features like a large capacity address book, transfer of data via Bluetooth or USB, and text messaging, contacting those closest to you has never been easier than with the Gigaset SL78H. With room for 500 vCard entries you no longer have to prioritize your contacts – simply include them all. Transfer your contact data quickly and easily via Bluetooth or the mini-USB jack and profit the most from your Gigaset SL78H.
I'd not recommend this handset.
The frame is metallic but almost everything else is plastic. The handset is almost unusable now. One of the keys right under the screen just dropped. Also the rest of the keys are not responsive anymore. We have to press them hard to use the phone.
The sound quality of the speaker is good but it is not loud enough.
In my opinion the asked price is too high for the quality it offers. We had our phone for about two years. Now we have to get something else since this one is falling apart.
Great Handset, just don't bother with bluetooth headsets
This is a beautifully designed handset with amazing speaker quality. It feels heavy - a good heavy - it feels like an important phone. I plan on having this phone for 15 years, and I have no doubt after one week of use that I will get at least 15 years out of it.
The other review slating the product for the less-than-maximum bluetooth feature set may be accurate, but for those who think bluetooth headsets are not so important in the home (given we are talking about a cordless phone here), this is a great product.
Bluetooth not well thought out
There doesn't seem to be any way to switch back and forth between the handset and the Bluetooth headset during a conversation. If you start the call with Bluetooth, you're stuck with Bluetooth.
If you put the handset on the charger while talking with Bluetooth, it hangs up the call. Tough beans if your battery's nearly dead, or if you want to de-clutter your desk.
I sometimes get some sort of Bluetooth synchronization error that creates very bad "robot-sounding" audio. That may be the fault of the headset, though. Headset is a Jabra BT8040.
