This list breaks down our best corded phones into:
Our Loudest Corded Telephone

Complete with simple controls and large buttons, it's easy to see why this is one of our top sellers. With ringing and handset volumes that are absolutely booming, you'll be able to hear this phone through any sort of background noise and even most types of severe hearing loss. Also available in black.

Our Clearest Extra-Loud Corded Telephone
Why We Love It: Call clarity can be just as important as volume, and over-amplification can often cause distortion, which is a problem the Amplicomms PowerTel 196 Extra-Loud Amplified Telephone was designed to solve. Built with a high-quality acoustic chamber, this phone achieves super-loud sound while minimising echo and distortion to ensure the voice you hear on the other end is as clear as it is loud.

Our Best Amplified Telephone with an Answering Machine
Why We Love It: Keeping track of important calls can be difficult, especially for the elderly. The Geemarc CL595 Big Button Corded Phone with Answering Machine not only stores messages and past callers, it also features a large and bright screen to show all the information of each caller at a glance. It's a great all-round phone for accessibility, with photo buttons, and extra-loud handset and simple controls with big buttons.
