Bluetooth Home & Office Phone Solution for Everyone

show-of-handsHave you been looking for something that would turn your home or office phone into a Bluetooth phone to allow for hands-free conversation via other compatible Bluetooth devices such as headsets, hearing aid streamers or neckloops? Better yet, were you hoping this product could somehow make the incoming caller’s voice louder too? While you are at it, might as well put out there that you really need this product to work with either a corded and cordless telephone.  These thoughts are no longer considered wishful thinking.  The newly available ClearSounds QH2 Bluetooth Hub and Phone Amplifier is a telephone accessory with multiple applications, providing solutions to anyone with or without hearing loss, user or non-user of hearing aids, who wants to engage in hands-free communication via telephone.

CS-QH2The QH2 Bluetooth Hub and Phone Amplifier (Item# CS-QH2) connects to a corded or cordless landline telephone via a few cables (see how to install video). Once paired with a compatible Bluetooth headset, streamer or neckloop, the hub wirelessly transmits signals from the landline telephone directly to the user’s headset, streamer or neckloop (watch how to pair video). This is what makes the QH2 a viable option for individuals with hearing loss who are current users of hearing aids looking for a hands-free communication solution for their home or business phone. The hub is also equipped with independent volume and tone controls, providing 30 dB of adjustable amplification and treble/base management. These features make the QH2 an affordable hands-free communication solution at home or at work for individuals with hearing loss who are not hearing aid wearers. Get to know this product because it will certainly come in handy for a lot of people, not just your hearing aid patients!

    Will this work with the Starkey Halo2 i2400 ?

    • aubankaitis says:

      I believe the answer is YES. The iPhone is the streamer with the Halo although I am in process of confirming the information and will let you know for sure shortly.

    • aubankaitis says:

      Dave:
      Unfortunately this combo (Starkey Halo and the CS-QH2) will NOT work. The connection between the MFi hearing aids and iPhone is proprietary BT. And the iPhone can only handle one BT connection at a time anyway. The user still has to have a streaming intermediary device to use the QH2.

    Will this system allow landline speaker to work at the same time of the Bluetooth device? Looking for s solution for meeting conference calls that I can Bluetooth into the call where everyone else uses the landline speaker. Thanks!

    • aubankaitis says:

      This hub will turn any landline phone into a Bluetooth phone. Once it is integrated into the phone, the hub will wireless send the conversation to your hearing aid streamer or a Bluetooth headset.

    I am looking for a solution to an Avaya system for a patient working at a hospital as well, can you suggest a neckloop to go with it?
    How do we find out if it will work with the Avaya? Would Clear Sounds know? Also, if it doesn’t, what else can you suggest?

    • aubankaitis says:

      The Avaya system is a PBX phone system I assume? The Quattro or Quattro 4.0 should work; email me at Oaktree Products and I can work it out with you

  4. Does it work with networked phones in an office? e.g. the Avaya system here in the hospital?

    • aubankaitis says:

      Christine:
      It will work with networked systems and will be compatible with most. The word “most” is thrown in there to cover the unlikely instance where it may not be compatible. Re: specific reference to Avaya, I can’t answer that as I don’t know but pretty good chance (>80%) that it will work.
