What Makes a Good Hard of Hearing Smartphone?

First and foremost, a smartphone for the hard of hearing means a loud, clear receiver. This means that the call volume is much louder than on a standard phone, making it easier for you to hear what’s being said and making sound clearer. Tone control and hearing aid compatibility add to this clarity; fantastic for individuals with high or low frequency hearing loss, enabling you to adjust the tone of the sound to match your hearing.

That being said, our favourite mobile phones and smartphones for impaired hearing aren't all about volume. Our picks below also take into account ease of use and accessibility, making them perfect first smartphones for someone looking to bring their mobile phone use into the modern era!
