      If your home phone isn’t loud enough but you like everything else about it, a telephone amplifier could be the ideal solution. Simply plug it into your existing corded phone and adjust the volume of calls to suit your hearing loss.

      How a telephone amplifier could improve your quality of life

      • No need to buy a new phone – compatible with most home and office corded phones
      • Enjoy louder, clearer calls so you can follow every conversation
      • Customise the volume to suit your hearing loss – some amplifiers let you adjust the tone as well
      • Take it with you when you’re away from home to stay in touch more easily
      • Everyone in the house can use it, whether or not they have hearing loss.

      Useful for mixed hearing households

      Our telephone amplifiers are suitable for people with up to severe hearing loss. They’re particularly useful for mixed hearing households because each member of the family can turn the volume up or down to suit their hearing. Sometimes hearing people may need a volume boost when they’re chatting in a noisy environment.

      Suitable for home and work

      Telephone amplifiers are compatible with most home and office corded phones. If you need a telephone amplifier to boost the volume of calls at work, consider one that has a headset socket so you can talk hands-free and type or write at the same time.

      Hear through your hearing aids

      Most telephone amplifiers are not designed for use with hearing aids. They’re for people with hearing loss who don’t use hearing aids or hearing aid users who remove them when chatting on the phone. If you do use hearing aids, look out for a telephone amplifier that works with a neckloop, so you can listen to calls through your hearing aids on the loop or ‘T’ setting.

      Easy to set up and use

      It’s easy to set up and use a telephone amplifier. It simply connects between the phone base unit and the handset. Most amplifiers automatically turn on and off when you pick up and put down the phone.

      Other phone solutions

      Telephone amplifiers work with corded phones but can’t be plugged into cordless phones, mobile phones or phones with numbers on the handset. If you need to boost the sound of other types of handsets, check out our top 10 phones for hearing loss blog post.
