This new desk telephone, described as the “the ultimate amplified phone system”, is equipped with a lot of great functions for anyone with a hearing loss or low vision.
It’s everything you want in a cordless amplified phone – a substantial increase in volume, paired with unparalleled sound quality. There’s a digital answering machine, and a speakerphone in the handset and base. The concave earpiece creates an acoustic chamber that reflects sound waves directly into your ear.
Choose among 4 tone settings, to help compensate for any high-frequency hearing loss. And choose the level of amplification, too – up to 50 decibels. The answering machine includes slow-motion playback, so you have time to understand every word.
Since those of us with hearing loss often experience some vision or mobility problems as well, this phone caters to those needs, too, with its large backlit buttons, a visual ringer flasher, a high-contrast LED screen, and a contoured, lightweight handset that fits in your hand just right.
The Ultimate Amplified Phone System is available from the FirstStreet website for $199.95.
