Introducing Doro: For a Smarter Generation

Today we’re looking at Doro, a leading manufacturer of amplified phones selling a wide range of useful devices for the hard of hearing. One area in which the Doro brand particularly stands out is mobile phones. Whilst other popular amplified telephone brands, like Geemarc, tend to focus on landline units in their range, offering one or two mobile devices, there’s a much wider selection available from Doro. For this reason, if it’s specifically an amplified mobile phone that you’re after then we’d definitely suggest checking out Doro’s full range.

Amplicomms: An Intro

Alexander Bell’s invention undoubtedly revolutionised the way we communicate, not to mention the more recent work of Apple and other smartphone manufacturers. But if you have a hearing impairment, this audible form of communication can at times feel rather exclusive. You may be unable to hear the voice of the person you are speaking to on a standard phone, or even hear the ringing of the phone in the first place.

But don’t worry; you don’t have to resort back to cave paintings every time you fancy a chat with your mum. Amplicomms have developed a range of specialised phones with the hard of hearing in mind.
