Product Description

We get more positive reviews for this phone than any other. The high handset and speakerphone volume, powerful ringer and excellent clarity make it a firm favourite.

This is our most popular phone because the sound quality is excellent and loud enough for someone with a severe hearing loss. As you can see from the huge number of positive reviews below, this telephone works fantastically well.

Adjust the sound to your hearing loss

Not only can you change the volume but you can also adjust the tone of the caller's voice to suit your hearing loss. For example, if you have difficulty hearing people with high pitched voices you can lower their tone.

Hearing aid compatible

The Mybelle 650 is hearing aid compatible so you can switch your hearing aid to the T setting and this will cut out background noise and make the conversation even clearer.

Make calls at the touch of a button

There are nine speed-dial buttons so you can call your nine most important and regular contacts at the touch of a button without hunting through your phone book. Each speed-dial button enables you to insert a small photo or name underneath so you can quickly see which button relates to which person in your directory.

Hands-free function

The hands-free function is very loud and clear and enables you to speak on the phone without holding the handset. This means you can write or type while chatting.

  • Maximum ringer volume of 84dB

 Good for a while

Posted by Colin on 22 July 2014

I have had the MyBelle 650 for 10 months and at first it was a revelation, i could hear the Ringer where ever i was in the house and i could actually hear and understand what the person on the other end said. No more passing the phone over to my wife for her to act as intermediary. If i had been writing this 3 months back i would have given it 5 stars. Unfortunately the good things came to an end all too quickly, by month 8 the ear piece of the handset was getting crackly and i was back to handing the phone to my wife. By the end of month 9 it was unusable even by my wife. This is purely on the ear piece because the people we were talking to said at their end our voices were perfectly clear. I had our phone line checked by BT who said the line was fine. As it is still under warranty i have sent it back to AOHL for repair/replacement. I have severe hearing loss and have to say that while it was still working properly it was easily the best phone i have ever had

 USELESS

Posted by Vivien, MALPAS on 28 April 2014

I bought this for my very hard of hearing 90 year old mother but had to return it as there was a constant loud buzzing noise when in use. The amplification was minimal, the only effective aspect of this phone was the ringer which was very loud. They would not pay my return postage as they would not acknowledge there was anything wrong with it. Do not waste your money.

 Disappointment

Posted by G on 15 February 2014

This phone is worse than the bog standard BT phone that I replaced and which will be reinstated. The sound is distorted and those I speak to complain of the crackling and distortion. This is due to this phone as we have another phone which on the same gives no problem. I was sold on the promise that high pitched voices would be more mellow and easier to hear. That has not proved to be the case. A waste of money.

Posted by Jennifer on 08 November 2013

Very pleased with the hands free function. Good choice of loudness for ringer. This phone will be very useful and save some frustration with normal phones when trying to hear call centre staff speaking into head pieces. Will help my hard of hearing husband a lot.

 Excellent !

Posted by Trevor, Thurston on 15 March 2013

With 40% hearing loss in both ears, I have been using a Geemark CL400 and more recently the Amplicom 50 with +60db. Both emitted a loud background buzz when amplification was used, to the extent that it really negated the benefit of the amplification. Following lengthy testing of the telephone point, answering machine, etc, I had to conclude that the phones were the culprits. I could hear only about 60% of what was said to me and was guessing the rest In despair, I decided to give just one more phone a try, and selected the Mybelle 650 based on the two reviews already delivered. As soon as I set it up and activated the Mybelle, it took me to a different hearing world where I no longer struggle to hear, or need to guess what has just been said. Pity it hasn't got caller display, but there are plenty of those available as an accessory so it isn't a big deficiency and is easily remedied. Oh joy ! I cannot praise the Mybelle 650 enough. Try it, and I'm sure you'll agree. Trevor, Suffolk

 maybelle 650

Posted by Stanley, WAKEFIELD on 29 October 2012

I bought this phone on the strength of the reviews. I am a pensioner and, having a BT line, use 18185 as a prefix to save a considerable amount on my calls. However I find that to use the memory fuction with 18185 needs 16 numbers and this phone only accepts 15. That means that I am unable to save my 9 most used numbers and have to dial every one every time. That is out of the question. I have carefully checked the write up for this phone and the limitation of only 15 stored numbers is not mentioned anywhere. I wrote all the memory cards so they are now useless. I am faced with the trouble of finding ALL the wrapping and sending the phone back, through no fault of my own. IF they will accept it back with the cards spoiled

 Excellent product

Posted by Catherine on 31 January 2012

I bought this telephone for my 97-year-old aunt, who has become too deaf to be able to use the telephone. It has been a great success and she now hears every word. She particularly likes the fact that she does not have to pick up the handset but can just push the button for hands-free use. She also likes the one touch photograph dialling.
