The Best Amplified Phones for the Deaf & Hard Of Hearing

8 CommentsMonday, 29 October 2018

Your phone is your main link to your family and loved ones, so when it rings, you need to be able to take notice and make contact. For the hearing impaired, this can be difficult, as standard ringer and receiver volumes are often too low and are not compatible for use with hearing aids. To solve this problem, Health and Care offers a number of intuitive Amplified Telephones and Amplified Mobile Phones, built with extra-loud ringtones, clear and easy-to-hear receivers, as well as a number of other features to make them as accessible and simple to use for just about anyone.

Benefits of an Amplified Telephone

Compared to standard telephones and mobile phones, amplified telephones are much easier to use for the hearing impaired and the elderly. Some of the most useful benefits of amplified telephones are:

  • Loud Ringtones: All of our amplified telephones feature loud and adjustable ringtones that allow them to be heard from just about anywhere
  • Clear and Loud Receivers: When on a call, you'll be able to hear the person on the other end much better than a standard phone so you won't miss out on key details
  • Hearing Aid Compatibility: Our amplified telephones are designed to work seamlessly with your existing hearing aid for clear and simple use
  • Easy to See and Use: Most of our amplified telephones feature large buttons with clear, easy-to-read labelling to help those with visual deficits

My Mum has severe hearing problems not on the phone but in hearing it ring so we thought maybe the answer for her would be an extension ringer. Having looked at a lot of info I find it all very confusing. Could you advise me please?

I have wasted a lot of time and a lot of money on sophisticated and expensive amplified telephones. None of them were reliable or efficient, then I bought a cheap as chips telephone from Geemarc (CL10). This cost me £9.99 and is reliable and efficient. It would be better still with higher amplification, but all things considered it is the best amplified telephone I have come across.
