What is an Amplified Phone?

Amplified phones are designed specifically for the hard of hearing, enabling you to increase the volume of the ringtone and handset to make communication clearer and easier.

What are the Benefits of an Amplified Phone?

The key benefits an amplified phone offers over a ‘normal’ telephone is the significantly louder and clearer incoming voice levels and adjustable ringer both in terms of volume and tone. You can adjust the voice level, ringer volume, and tone separately enabling you to set it to exactly the level you require to suit your hearing loss requirements.

What Different Types of Amplified Phone are There?

A variety of amplified corded phones, cordless amplified phones with additional handsets and big button phones can all be bought from us. These are far louder than standard telephones, preventing you from missing those all-important phone calls.

Key Features of Amplified Phones

There are a number of other features to look out for when choosing your amplified phone:

  • Extra tone control - allowing you to personalize your phone to your individual hearing needs. 
  • Telecoil compatibility - for those who wear hearing aids
  • Backlit keypad - which illuminate when pressed. 
  • Big buttons, flashing lights, and photo caller ID. 
  • Answer machines - so you never miss a call.

Alternatives to an Amplified Phone

If you don’t want a different phone, a telephone amplifier is also an option. They are a battery-powered device that connects to the base unit of the phone. The telephone amplifier can then be adjusted to increase the volume and tone of your conversation.
