If you’re looking for a home phone that’s as stylish as it is functional, then look no further than the Gigaset Hello Phone CL390. Boasting a sleek, modern style, it’s also a joy to use, with an ergonomic design for extra comfort, high-contrast display, and an intuitive menu system that makes it easy to access the phone’s numerous additional features.
Simple Setup & Use
As well as looking great, the Hello Phone CL390 is also remarkably easy to use. Its large, high-contrast screen is easy to see from across a room, so you can always see who’s calling. The backlit display also makes it easier to navigate through the intuitive menu system. And for those whose eyesight isn’t quite what it used to be, there’s also an optional jumbo-font mode, too. Combined with plug-and-play setup, this all makes the CL390 a breeze to use.
Superb Sound Quality
Gigaset are well-known for their high sound quality, and the Hello Phone CL390 is no exception. Not only does it sound superb on the handset, but thanks to full-duplex technology, calls are equally clear on handsfree mode, too. With two amplifying acoustic profiles to choose from, it can be optimized to suit your preferences, and it’s even hearing aid-compatible!
Nuisance Call Blocking Features
Tired of nuisance calls? You’ll be pleased to hear that the Gigaset CL390 includes several call blocking features to help make these a thing of the past. The anonymous call blocker cuts down dramatically on the number of automated calls which can get through, and there’s also a blacklist for up to 32 contacts. And for times when you don’t want to be disturbed by anyone, time control mode silences all but preselected VIP numbers.
Integrated Answer Machine
Not at home when the phone rings? No problem! The Gigaset CL390 comes with an integrated answering machine with up to 20 minutes of recording time. With adjustable recording length and the option to record your own personal greeting, it’s easy to set up according to your own unique preferences.
Available With up to Four Handsets
The Gigaset CL930 can support up to 4 individual handsets, with a maximum range of up to 50 metres. This means that you can space them out around your home so that you’re never far from a handset when you get a call. What’s more, the CL390 can also make free internal calls between handsets- so you can easily contact your family, wherever they are in the house.
ECO DECT Mode
As with all Gigaset cordless phones, the CL390 includes ECO-DECT technology to make it more environmentally friendly. With this mode switched on, power consumption is reduced by up to 60%, and radiation is kept to a minimum.
I purchased this from liGo's eBay store in early December 2023. After nearly 3 months usage I can report that the phones seem pretty reliable and have good volume both in ringing and listening with a good clear sound. The range seems fine in my house with phones on all floors connecting well. The buttons are well spaced and clearly labelled. I haven't bothered to set up the answer machine, as this will not work anyway after the digital switchover. They are pretty easy to set up and have a reasonable range of features for the price.
They don't get a full 5 stars, though, as there are some niggles:
1. You can't name the handsets (they are just numbered in the sequence they are registered). This may seem trivial, but personally I like to see a name such as "kitchen", "lounge" etc. on the handset.
2. The ringtones are awful. There is a pretty good number of options, but almost all of them sound terrible. Even for a low-end phone this isn't acceptable.
3. Battery life is not great - I find that the handset "dies" after about a day if not left in its charger.
However, that being said, these are relatively minor issues and I think this represents good value for the money.
We bought a set of telephones recently from another company and had endless difficulty with them. They were complicated to set up and when using them the sound was terrible with the person at the other end often unable to hear us at all. We decided to cut our losses and chose Gigaset after reading some excellent reviews. We are really pleased with our purchase, the phones were smart, easy to set up and the clarity is excellent. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend these phones, so far they are brilliant.
Coming from SL models, clearly there's plastic instead of metal, however I'm still impressed with the finish. The viewing angle and contrast of the screen is lesser than the premium models, which is only bothersome when looking at the phone from across a room to see who's calling. Sound quality is great, and this is the strength (and arguably most important feature). We like the individual keys over that flat style in other models. Dispatch was quick and so too delivery.
Very impressed by the style and quality of the phones, easy to set up and use. First class service with delivery within 24 hours of order.
Very nice phone, easy to set up and user friendly.
