Tried and tested gets better: the new COMFORT 550

Gigaset presents its future “Made in Germany” bestseller

Premiere for the new all-rounder from Gigaset. With its timeless, elegant design, perfect ergonomics and many convenient functions, the COMFORT 550 is the ideal phone for at home – from the living area to the home office. Thanks to the headset connection and integrated hands-free facility, you have your hands free when making calls in HD quality. And the dynamic call block list protects you from unwanted calls. The Gigaset COMFORT 500 is available in variations as analogue phone, for direct connection to a DECT-capable router and as an IP-DECT phone system.

“Expectations for a new cordless phone from Gigaset are very high,” says Manfred Heuermann, Product Manager at Gigaset. “So we’ve made the tried and tested just that bit better.” The COMFORT 550 follows in the footsteps of the highly successful Gigaset C530 series – and the bar is accordingly high. The most striking thing is the shift in design: the 2.2-inch colour display with its easy-to-read graphics and fonts is embedded in the glossy black upper half of the handset. And the large illuminated buttons with a noticeable pressure point blend visually into the silver-coloured casing. “People want their homes to be beautiful – even small details such as telephones count. We are meeting this demand with our new design,” says Heuermann.

No more unwanted calls

The newly developed comfort call blocker on the Gigaset COMFORT 550 reliably protects against advertising calls or dangerous telephone scams. Up to 150 phone numbers can be entered into a block list or taken directly from the call list. Anonymous calls can also be blocked or muted. With the time control function, the telephone remains muted at set times; callers with a VIP address book entry are nevertheless put through. The call protection feature on the Gigaset COMFORT 550 with a base station is even more comprehensive: if only callers in the address book are to be registered, the device blocks all other calls. The memory can store up to 200 contacts, each with three telephone numbers – including date of birth. This way, the device can even remind you to make a birthday call.

Picture and sound of your choice

Whether you prefer a dark or high-contrast white display, an analogue or digital clock as the screen background – with its personalisation options, the Gigaset COMFORT 550 will quickly become your favourite roommate. Two acoustic profiles with different frequency ranges and hearing aid compatibility ensure an optimal listening experience. Sound quality and volume are first-class as you would expect from Gigaset – even in hands-free mode. The ringtone volume can be set in five levels or crescendo, and important callers can be assigned their own ringtones. So you can hear who is calling just by listening to the ringtone.

For all generations

As many as six handsets can be connected to the base station – one for each floor, one in the kitchen, in the cellar, in the office or in the garage. And one in the children’s room: in baby phone mode, the Gigaset COMFORT 550 establishes a connection to other handsets in the household or to mum or dad’s smartphone when a noise threshold is exceeded. If the children are a little older, the direct call function is particularly practical: all keys trigger the dialling of a preassigned number – making misdialling impossible. Ideal for children who cannot yet read.

With ECO DECT technology, Gigaset is also making a contribution for future generations: The particularly energy-saving phones are radiation-free in standby mode and during a call the transmission power automatically adjusts to the distance between the base and the handset. This means: the shorter the distance to the base of the Gigaset COMFORT 550, the lower the radiation.
