Product Description

The Amplicomms Powertel 780 Amplified Cordless Hearing Aid Compatible Phone with answer machine can create two different user profiles and tailor the tone and volume to your hearing. At the press of a button you can switch between settings. This cordless phone works particularly well with hearing aids, so you won’t get interference.

The Amplicomms PowerTel 780 Amplified Cordless Phone has some unique features that make it stand out from the crowd. You will never have to keep fiddling with small buttons and keep asking people to repeat themselves again!


Two User Profiles

Firstly, you can create two different user profiles where the tone, volume and boost settings are tailored to your hearing. At the press of a button the next user can switch back to the profile they have set for themselves. This is ideal for households with mixed hearing abilities, as it means there is no need to keep checking the volume and tone before use.


Built-In Answer Machine

The Powertel 780 is an amplified cordless phone with answering machine which means you can pick up amplified messages if you happen to miss the phone ringing.


Five-Band Graphic Equaliser

The five-band graphic equaliser also allows you to set the tone more accurately than most other phones.


Big Buttons and Hearing-Aid Compatible

This PowerTel big button cordless phone can be for the elderly or seniors, but it also works particularly well with hearing aids so you won’t get interference and background noise will be cut out.


Caller ID Function

The Caller ID function means you can see the number of the person calling you or even their name if you programme the number into the phonebook. You need to subscribe to Caller ID with your telephone line provider to use this service.


Amplified Messages

This big button cordless phone with answer machine also amplifies your messages and can be accessed while you're away from home using a pass-code.


Hands-Free Function

The hands-free function allows you to speak and hear without holding the handset, leaving your hands free to write or type.

I had high hopes for this phone. Unfortunately even with all the boosts and increasing volume I still couldn't hear conversation easily. I would say that I have moderate hearing loss.

Best phone I have ever bought. I now realise to what extent I was struggling to hear on the phone previously. Thank you.

Because I can answer the phone from diffferent locations and hear wel using the volime control, I can save my wife always having to answer the phone, first from rooms away from the telephone base on our previous mobile.
