Wednesday, 13 July 2016  |  Admin

At Amplified Telephones, we understand how isolating hearing loss can be. No one wants to feel alone, cut off from their loved ones just because they can’t hear the phone ringing. Hearing impairments should not have a negative impact on you or your loved ones though, not when there is the simple solution of an amplified telephone. Telephones for the hard of hearing differ dramatically in style, amplification and design... and we have them all!

If you’re looking for a corded amplified phone for a loved one who is hard of hearing, we’ve got you covered. To make things easier, we have composed a list of the Top 5 Best Corded Amplified Phones to help you choose the correct one!

Amplicomms PowerTel 30 Amplified Telephone

The right amplified telephone is essential for those who are hard of hearing to remain in contact. The Amplicomms PowerTel 30 is fantastic for the elderly; straightforward and easy to use with large buttons for impaired dexterity and a 30dB amplification to clarify the voice on the other end. The phone also has an increased ring volume and a visual indicator so you are alerted to an incoming phone call.

This corded phone has an in-built phone book to store up to 32 numbers and two emergency contacts, making it simple to connect with the outside world if an accident occurs. Suitable as a desk phone or with a wall mount, the Amplicomms 30 will help you keep in touch!

Geemarc Amplipower 50 Hard of Hearing Telephone

A popular amplified telephone, the Amplipower 50 is one of the loudest phones in the world! This corded phone is great for those with severe hearing loss as it has an amplification of 60dB, around 6/7 times louder than a normal phone. The ring volume is enhanced with strobe lighting to alert your loved one to an incoming call.

Hearing loss is not always across all frequencies. High frequency hearing, especially sounds such as “s” and “th”, become difficult to hear. The Amplipower 50 has a tone control option to allow users to adjust the tone to help clarify those awkward sounds. It’s not surprising this is one of the best corded telephones for the hard of hearing.

Doro MemoryPlus 319iph Photo Phone

Hearing loss is not the only symptom of growing older, sight and memory can also be affected. This is why the MemoryPlus 319iph corded phone has made it onto the list: four photo keys assist with recognising a familiar face and dialling the correct number at just the press of a button.

The big button and contrast keypad aids those with partial sight or struggle with a standard keypad while the visual indicator notifies those with hearing impairments of an incoming call. Ideal for those affected by age, the photo phone means staying connected has never been easier.

Humantechnik Flashtel ECO Amplified Telephone

The sleek and stylish design of the Humantechnik Flashtel puts to rest any concerns over an amplified phone being bulky or clumsy in design. With 30dB amplification, this corded phone helps make calls clearer and louder with treble and base control to increase the clarity as required. The big buttons and visual ringer reduces misdialling and prevents calls from being missed.

Flashtel ECO made the list due to the six speed dial buttons positioned to one side. Separate from the main keypad and with space to write names next to the buttons, the speed dial buttons means connecting with loved ones only takes the push of a button.

Geemarc BDP400 Amplified Telephone for the Visually Impaired

Is your loved one visually impaired or hard of hearing, or perhaps both? The BDP400 amplified corded phone caters for both hearing and visual impairments to help them stay connected to the world! A large, backlit display screen displays names and numbers and is easily adjusted for individual needs.

The big buttons help prevent misdials for those who are visually impaired or suffer from dexterity problems. Every button and menu is fully vocalised as is the caller ID, announcing who is calling if the screen cannot be seen. Adjustable volume control and pitch lets this amplified phone be adjusted for your personal situation.

Choose your Phone!

All of the above amplified phones for the hard of hearing are compatible with a hearing aid and loop system. An amplified corded telephone helps those with hearing impairments to stay connected, stopping them from becoming isolated and you for worrying every time they miss a phone call!
