With the new Ooma HD sound that's about to happen, will it work with other HD systems like Skype?

It is a newer codec that requires both parties to have a supported handset.

The HD buzz word is thrown around to much in my opinion, I am more interested to see how "pure voice" will help call quality. My call quality is pretty good, but at times I can hear background noise of some sorts, that falls on the partner carriers. If that can all be cleaned up to sound like my original landline, now that will be HD!!

I think they both use the same codec, and I have to tell you that if you have HD headsets on both ends of the Skype call it is amazing. That's why I'm wondering if the two systems are comparable.

It's not really very new, it's been around for a while now. Interestingly g.722 support is a feature of Freeswitch so no surprise that the Telo could easily support it. Supposedly many corded phones could actually handle it but not many cordless phones can. I' m trying to get a good answer as to what codec the DECT cordless phones use between the base and handset. I've heard g.726 for first generation and a wider band codec for new models but I need more data. Nobody ever speaks about bandwidth when advertising DECT systems.
