Details

The Amplicomms PowerTel 880 Combo is manufactured by Amplicomms, a company dedicated to providing communication solutions to the hearing impaired. Unlike many phone manufacturers who build standard phones and add a degree of amplification, Amplicomms phones are designed from the outset with hearing impairment in mind. HearingDirect only stocks phones from manufacturers committed to the provision of amplified products.

"Combo" phone systems are becoming increasingly popular and the PowerTel 880 is combination of the PowerTel 58 desk phone and the PowerTel 701 cordless phone. As individual devices these are both very high quality devices providing excellent levels of amplification. In combination they can be the total solution that you are looking for. The key features deliver an integrated answering machine (on the PowerTel 58 desk phone) and high amplification with low distortion through both devices.

The full feature set is detailed below and while it is an impressive list don’t be over-awed as they are delivered fully paired so ready to use. Simply plug in the desk phone with power and a landline, position the cordless handset wherever you want it in the house and you are ready to go.

Review by bernard dawn (Posted on 25/09/2014)
After years of deafness and tinnitus which was so bad I didn't even bother to answer the phone because I couldn't hear anyone. I had tried several makes and models without sucess I had given up on ever being able to use the phone again. I have purchasd the Amplicon PowerTel 880 Combo and have had several conversations which I have been unable to hold for years. The only down side are the ring tones, we had different tunes for family and friends and a general tone for other calls which we miss, which is why we deducted a star. But it better to hear than have a fancy ring tone but be unable to hear the caller.

Review by A Walker (Posted on 12/07/2013)
My ninety four year old mum is delighted with the Amplicomms PowerTel 880 phone and finds it's features (especially the variable amplification levels) are way superior to any of other types of similar (but inferior) phones she has purchased in the past. Up until now she has found it extremely hard (being almost blind and profoundly deaf) and frustrating to communicate using a telephone when audio levels and quality of sound have been poor. Not any more! Also, many thanks for the prompt delivery of the order and your excellent level of customer service.
