With the help of variable amplification using the telephone can be become less frustrating. However, just increasing the volume doesn’t always help. Most hearing loss is not equal across the different frequencies and so a tone control is extremely useful when trying to improve clarity to boost the frequencies that are being lost. This leads to a greater understanding of the person you are having a conversation with. Using both volume and tone together will give the most help.
Most of the landline corded telephones on our website have an inductive coupler in the handset that can be used in conjunction with a hearing aid that has the ‘T’ or ‘Loop’ facility. If phones have this facility they and are listed as ‘Hearing Aid Compatible’ (HAC)
