Not sure if HDSP is do-able just plugging in the base to Ooma; what does "HDSP ready" mean? If not, I personally would go with other DECT 6.0 phones that are a lot cheaper. Multi-handset system for $20 per handset or even $15 per handset could be found out there. More expensive doesn't necessarily mean better. Panasonic handsets have the best reputation from what I hear. Siemens, Motorola maybe very good brands; but in other areas but not necessarily home DECT 6.0 phones in my opinion.

Panasonic phones are very good, but I'm looking for an alternative to the Ooma DECT phone, so any cordless phone that is compatible with HDVoice and uses the same codec.
The specifications of the C300 seem to be talking about the same HDVoice technology that Ooma uses, just rebranded with a different name. It's still not clear if it's compatible with HD Voice or not though.

The reviews that I read liked the Siemens Gigaset C300 very much, with very long battery life. But the only complaint was that it was small in the hand?

The complaint about the Ooma Telo handset is the low battery life and the battery charging.

Relatively both are cheep. Maybe you might consider purchasing one of each? ;)

If you do, or just purchase the Gigaset C300 handsets, report back with your experiences.
