VAT_Reclaim.gifThe BigTel 200 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.

The BigTel 200 is a fantastic amplified cordless phone at outstanding value for money, it offers high quality, extra loud, distortion free volume with hands free speakerphone and useful easy to use features.

Since it was launched the BigTel 200 has been HearingDirect’s biggest seller amongst the cordless phone category and continues to be hugely popular. It is very easy to set up and can be operational within minutes of being unpacked. If you need additional handsets this product can be paired with the BigTel 201 to provide a linked network of phones around your house. Alternatively take a look at the BigTel 202 which is a pre-paired BigTel 200 and BigTel 201.

Already a great price, if you are registered disabled you can save even more money by reclaiming the VAT on this and other phones deigned for the hearing impaired. There’s a very simple form to complete or if it is easier give HearingDirect a call on Freephone 0800 032 1301.

HearingDirect recommends the BigTel 200 as its most popular cordless phone.

Great phone, gets very loud. Sometimes it dips down but we just press the button again and it goes loud! Customer service was great as I actually ordered the wrong thing and they called the check!

I have waited several weeks to review this phone but must say that it is a delight to use and no difficulties have arisen at all. Good volume once you get it set to your liking, large buttons and easy to remember how to use it!!! I am delighted with it as like many people of my age it is my link to the outside world. Well done amplicomms and many thanks.

At last I can hear a telephone conversation without difficulty. I have the set the telephone with the boost on as that is easier than switching when I get a call. The rest of the family have to use another handset as the boost deafens them!!

Review by C Reynolds (Posted on 26/02/2014)
Found this phone easy to use and set up. The volume is very good can get a little distorted when on full volume but not to the degree of not being able to use it The equalizer is also a bonus. My husband is now free to make and receive calls without struggling to understand people.

I was looking for a increased loudness handheld phone and found Hearing Direct online, picked a Big Tel 200 from manufacturer Amplicomms Ltd. that gave me the listening 30 d/bl I needed to hear conversations on the phone. The product was delivered within 3 days with easy instructions on how to connect to my own phone line, could not have been easier, great company, great product, great service just a call away at Hearing Direct.

Review by R Ewing (Posted on 19/03/2012)
A bright, easy to see, well designed phone. The big plus for me was the speech volume button which makes calls crystal clear and hearable!! At first I was a little disappointed as the volume button from 1 to 5 does not make that much difference, but then press the boost button and its wonderful! I find the boost on about volume 3 is enough... on 5 its too much which is music to my ears as I can never get things loud enough! So yes a great buy and not expensive.

I would like to acknowledge the receipt of the Big Tel 200/202. Thank you for your kind attention to my order. You asked for a review of this product and i would give it a rating of 4. I did find the user manual a little difficult to follow but I am sure that as I continue to use the product I shall be completly satisfied. I do appreciate the clear sound when I use the booster.

Review by Melanie walsh (Posted on 07/02/2012)
Bought for my elderly mother who loves the big clear buttons and the facility where you can have the ""Boost on"" at all times without her having to put a bulky portable Amplifier on the headset. The 2 direct memory buttons are also very useful so she can dial myself and my sibling at the touch of a button. Really pleased overall.
