Loudest Phones for Hard of Hearing
4 September 2023 | Sharman
Being hard of hearing can be incredibly difficult, especially when it comes to the phone. Not being able to hear the ring or what the person on the other end is saying can discourage phone use, causing loneliness and isolation, particularly with elderly people. If you or a loved one are partially deaf, you may need one of our Loudest Phones for Hard of Hearing.
The phones in this list are really loud, with ringer volumes going up to a massive 117dB! From corded phones, to simple mobiles and all the way to smart phones, we've got the extra-loud amplified telephone for you.
What Does this Guide Cover?
Our Loudest Cordless Phone
Why It's Great: The Geemarc AmpliDECT 595 Amplified Cordless Phone is a brilliant and easy-to-use landline option for those with limited hearing. On top of being really loud, it also features 10 photo buttons which are really handy for those with memory or vision issues. You can put a picture of someone on each button for easy recognition and instant dialling. There's also an SOS button on the back that sends out an emergency message to four pre-saved contacts, which makes sure help is never far away.
Our Customer's Verdict: "Excellent Product - Purchased to use with a heat gun for stripping paint, they protect my hands well" - Bernadette ★★★★★

Our Loudest Corded Phone
Why It's Great: For those with memory problems who might have a hard time keeping track of cordless phones, the Amplicomms PowerTel 196 Extra-Loud Corded Amplified Telephone is a great choice. It's also really hard to miss a call with the flashing red LED call indicator light on top of the extremely loud volume. The buttons are really large and easy to read, while the large screen is backlit with a high-contrast display, making it great for those with vision impairment too.
Our Customer's Verdict: "Fabulous phone for hard of hearing users! Life changing! - My hard of hearing, hearing aid wearing father in law had almost given up communicating by telephone. Purchasing this extra loud amplified telephone has changed his life. It has volume control depending on the user of the phone but when on full amplified volume it's very loud. Very happy customer." - Amanda ★★★★★

Our Loudest Simple Mobile Phone
Why It's Great: With a receiver volume of 77dB and a speakerphone volume of 105dB combined with a really simple design, the TTfone Mercury 2 TT200 Big Button Loud Volume Mobile Phone with SOS Button is perfect for hard of hearing people who have trouble using modern phones. The buttons and icons are large and easy-to-read, while the phone itself is small and extremely durable. Also included is a convenient dock for easy charging.
Our Customer's Verdict: "Arrived quickly as said and was easy to set up. The phone was purchased for my Mum who has dementia and is virtually deaf. It has a speaker option so mum can hold the phone in her hand instead of to her ear so this is really useful as it doesn't get in the way of her hearing aids." - Lynda ★★★★★
