Range/reception were actually better than I expected.

I liked the idea of the Q2 features (text to speech, announcements, etc.); but, I am pretty sure I can make my phone (the Droid 2 Pro) do all, or at least most, of those things if I ever get around to installing and configuring the proper apps.

I did need the multi-point technology since I also have poor cell reception in the house and keep it paired with my land line phone as well as my cell which I why I narrowed my search down to the same two models you are considering.

A couple of things finally pushed me to the Pro+
  • Past experience with the Pro
  • Good deal (saved $30) when I ordered it with my new phone
One possible caveat for you: The volume for the Pro+ does not go quite as high as I would like. I actually have good hearing when my sinuses aren't acting up; but, I would like to be able to get the volume a bit louder in noisy situations. So, your husband might have issues with this. But, I have no idea if the Q2 has any better volume.
Thanks once again. Sorry to hear about the volume...hmmmm.

I would not worry about battery life on the Palntronics unit. Mine goes a week before needing charging. I'm kind of a medium to lower user. Probably 6-800 mins a month. 5-20 calls a day is typical.

It will actually go about a half day after the low battery starts beeping. My phone charger fits the PT unit too. I always keep a charger in the car, so I'm covered both ways (phone & BT).I'm in the car a fair bit
