An amplified cordless telephone with built in answering machine and hearing aid compatibility.
The AmpliDECT 295 is a stylish amplified cordless phone with an adjustable receiver volume of up to 30dB! It is a good choice for anybody with a hearing loss and with both adjustable speaker and ringer volumes. This is an excellent phone for someone suffering from mild hearing loss or for someone who just needs extra volume or clarity when lines and/or conditions are not optimal for easy listening on the phone. The answering facility needs not complicate life as it can be left alone and it is still excellent value for money.
This is a well designed phone with a good sound quality. It does not have a tone control, which means that although it has a good level of amplification, the bass/treble cannot be adjusted to suit your particular hearing loss. Having said that, it is excellent value for money, particularly considering the answerphone facility which is useful for many people.
The answering machine offers 15 minutes of recording time, which means you don’t have to miss an important message again. This can be also turned off if required and there is a large back-lit display screen that allows you to view the date, time and number of messages. There is also an alarm function which is great for anybody who needs to set reminders.
The answering machine has two modes: normal recording mode and simple mode, which will play a pre-recorded outgoing message but will not allow a caller to leave a message – particularly handy if you prefer to use email or text as you can record a message asking them to use an alternative contact method.
With easy to press buttons this phone is ideal for anybody with limited dexterity and with a streamlined design, it fits really nicely in your hand for comfortable phone conversations. You also have the benefit of the built in speaker phone option which allows you to talk to the recipient at the end of the line, hands free!
The phonebook can store up to 50 numbers and there is a handy redial function for the last 10 outgoing calls.
Up to 3 additional handsets can be added for use with this phone. These can be any combination of standard AmpliDECT 295 handsets or PhotoDECT 295 handsets, which simply have 4 photo dial buttons – making them great for people with dementia or memory loss (see associated items).
This phone has a T coil and most hearing aid users will find the level of background noise acceptable when using the DECT telephone handset directly with ‘T’ with their hearing aid – it is simply a matter of trial and personal preference.
Please note, this phone does not have an adjustable tone control.
