What's more, this phone for the hard of hearing does not require a power supply to achieve the 30dB amplification for maximum flexibility of use.

For added usability for those with partial deafness or hearing impairment, the ringer volume can also be increased up to 85dB. This will make it virtually impossible to miss a phone call.
Why Do I Need a Four-Pack of CL100 Telephones?
Many elderly individuals much prefer corded phones to cordless, as they are familiar and virtually impossible to misplace. The problem with corded phones is that they are immobile, meaning that unless you are nearby when it rings, you're more likely to miss it. This money-saving bundle provides the ideal solution, allowing you to place a unit in different areas of the house so that there's always a telephone nearby.
Does It Include Tone Control?
This phone for the hard of hearing individuals also features a fully adjustable tone control, enabling the user to adjust the tone of the conversation. This is especially important for those with high and low frequency hearing loss as certain sounds can often be difficult to distinguish over the telephone. Users with high frequency hearing loss find it difficult to hear the letters "T" and "S" in conversation, but tone control boosts these sounds so they become clearer and easier to identify.
Can I Use It with My Hearing Aid?
For maximum usability, the CL100 features full hearing aid compatibility. Simply set your hearing aid to the 'T' position and raise the receiver to the ear with the hearing aid and you'll be able to easily hear the telephone.
How Easy To Use Is This Telephone?
And this ease of use doesn't stop at sound. The CL100 utilises big buttons with high-contrast design to ensure that every button is as clear and as easy to use as possible. This makes it a fantastic phone for the elderly as well as the hard of hearing, who may have sight or fine motor control issues. The phone can also be wall mounted, for a more economical use of living space.
Can I Connect This Phone to My Internet Modem?
Yes, if you subscribe to a digital phone line from your landline provider, this phone can be connected by plugging the telephone cord directly into your internet modem.
Is This the New Version of the CL100?
Yes, this is the updated and improved version of the CL100, sometimes known as the CL100V2.

The CL100 also features last number redial, ideal for those who tend to miss calls.
