How Loud Is This Amplified Telephone?
The CL100 has a receiver volume of up to 30dB, which is approximately five times louder than a normal telephone, making it ideal for those with mild to moderate hearing loss. 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. Simply plug the telephone into the phone socket (with the cables supplied) and insert the batteries.
Ringer Volume Up to 85dB
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.
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 will find it difficult to hear the letters "T" and "S" in conversation, for example. With tone control, these sounds can be boosted 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.
Is This Amplified Telephone Suitable for the Visually Impaired?
The CL100 phone for the hard of hearing also features a visual ringer indicator in the form of a large LED flashing light – helping you to see as well as hear the phone ringing.
Does It Include Quick Dial Buttons?
There is also a pop out phone number sheet beneath the telephone on the right hand side of the telephone. For faster access, three coloured emergency quick dial buttons at the top of the telephone in green, red and blue and nine quick dial memory buttons can be programmed for one-touch dialling - enabling you to call those numbers most important to you at the press of a button. The CL100 also features last number redial, ideal for those who tend to miss calls.
Does This Amplified Telephone Have Hands-Free Function?
No, unfortunately the Geemarc ClearSound CL100 does not include a hands-free function. If you're looking for an extra loud, easy-to-use telephone that enables hands-free calling, we would strongly recommend the Geemarc Amplipower 50 White Amplified Telephone.
