Extra Handset Gigaset SL400H : Excellent cordless phone handset

Tough, reliable and a decent range. If you can afford it, buy it.

Gigaset by siemens just make incredibly great phones. They do cost more than other cordless digital phones but you definitely get what you pay for. This extra handset completes my trio and is very easy to pair with the main basestation set. Audio quality and range are exceptional.

Very nice quality phone which has been paired with our existing gigasets – very clear. Here are the specifications for the Extra Handset Gigaset SL400H:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Luxurious materials – genuine metal frame and illuminated keypad
  • Generous colour display with intuitive user interface
  • Convenient Bluetooth headset connection

This handset is little bigger than a mobile phone, yet has great battery life and the range is excellent. The design is extremely attractive; it has a solid, well built feel, and the features are well thought through. Two draw backs: it isn’t cheap, and the instructions and phone menu are in german. However, the vendor – soteluk – had enclosed an englsih cd of instructions. And they were very helpful in guiding me through which menu options i needed to follow to reset the phone to be in english. ‘a superb bit of kit’ as i said to the german vendor. . And then had to explain the expression.Which is more than i can say about the sl400a, answering machine.

Great phone, cool to look at, bluetooth to load contacts, lasts for ages off the stands and when calling.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • excellent phone – liGo problems
  • Extra handset – Gigaset SL400H
  • Excellent Product

Easy to set up as an additional handset and transferred all the contacts to the new hand set in a jiffy.

We already have 2 of these phones they are weighty and well made so i could not understand why they have taken them off the market and i was relieved to still find a spare to buy when one of my bases was not charging properly. Excellent company and prompt delivery i hope they will continue the good work.

  1. Beautifully made, good sound quality on speaker and through earpiece, works flawlessly with a gigaset c620a pair elsewhere in the house.

    We already had this phone with 3 extra sets and ordered two more. It’s the best phone we have ever had, a big more expensive but worth every penny.

      1. Excellent cordless phone handset. I bought this extra handset to go with the gigaset duo phones i had bought a few days earlier. The extra handset arrived very promptly and was easy to set up with the base unit, following the very straightforward instructions. This is an excellent product and although not a cheap cordless phone, it has the feel of quality and i am hopeful that it will last a lot longer than my previous cordless phone systems.

    Ordered 4 of these handsets with dx800a and am absolutely amazed with its elegance, clarity and range. I did also buy the dect repeater. However, i will never purchase it from ligo electronics again, ever. They sent wrong desktop chargers and power supply for 3 of the 4 handsets i bought. Despite repeated emails and calls, there has been no response from their side. Never buy anything from ligo electronics.

      1. Extra handset – gigaset sl400h. This is a great home phone, even better than the gigaset sl785 which i thought was the “bees knees”. I have a gigaset sl785 trio arrangement – ie the base station and 3 handsets are the gigaset sl785 design, and they provide all the features i could ask for. I needed a 4th handset and i chose the gigaset sl400h as i knew it was compatible with the gigaset sl785. I was correct – it links in perfectly with the base station and provides exactly the same features as the sl785, except that the chargers are not interchangeable. However, it is superior to the sl785 as follows: louder maximum loudspeaker volume, louder maximum ringtone volume, the usb socket is accessible without removing the back cover, the keys are individual buttons as opposed to regions on the sl785 faceplate and so give more positive feedback. On both these gigaset phones i like the ability to transfer contacts from microsoft outlook. Also a feature i like is to display the caller’s name and photograph, however one gripe here is that the photographs have to be entered into the phone separately and manually linked to the contact as the data transfer doesn’t import the photos stored in microsoft outlook contacts. My final comment is that these phones are a bit pricey but are high quality and, in my opinion, well worth it. They may become obsolete if and when mobile phone technology becomes standard for fixed phones – but don’t hold your breath.

    1. Excellent phone – ligo problems. Excellent phone but i would not by from ligo. I bought the sl400a from ligo, it was dispatched in the wrong box (of a duo system), due to “warehouse issues” as they replied via email to my complaint, the packing was scruffy, i had problems setting up the base because it was previously set up with a different handset, ligo were uncontactable over the phone as their customer service phone line is constantly experiencing busy times (i can imagine why). Siemens gigaset helpline was very helpful and properly supports this excellent phone. Gigaset gigaset mobiltelefon gigaset sl400a met/psw.
