Mobile phones are life-changing. They keep us safe and stress-free, knowing we're always contactable. It's important that mobiles are available to everyone who wants one, regardless of their technical prowess, age or level of hearing loss.
That’s why our mobile phones are easy to use and accessible to all, with amplification and hearing aid compatibility, as well as a strong vibration. We also have specifically designed mobile phones for seniors that are much simpler to use for those who grew up before the digital age.<
If you’re thinking about getting a new mobile phone, here are some features to look out for:
- compatibility with a hearing loop for use with hearing aids using the loop or ‘T’ setting
- volume boost button for the handset
- vibrating call or text alert
- volume control that‘s easily accessible
- hands free/loudspeaker
- voice dialling of phonebook entries
- access to the internet, emails and instant messaging
- SOS button with GPS positioning
We have a wide range of mobile phones for people who are deaf or have hearing loss. The Geemarc CL8500 clamshell phone has the highest-possible hearing aid compatibility rating and is a suitable for non-hearing aid users too. This big button mobile phone is also ideal for anyone with sight loss. The Doro 8040 is one of the simplest smartphones on the market. It’s Bluetooth-enabled so can be used in conjunction with other products, including the Roger Pen wireless microphone. The Doro 8040 is available to purchase separately or combined with an EE SIM-only package.
