Video Transcript For The Hard Of Hearing:
This is a review by Hearing Direct of the Geemarc AmpliDect 280 cordless telephone, probably one of the most popular cordless telephones that we sell here at Hearing Direct. It's currently very good value for money. It has good levels of amplification and also good–really good extra loud ringing volume as in fact it says on here and it is also hearing aid compatible as well. So by that what that means it that if you have a hearing aid which has a telecoil program or option then you select that option and hold the phone in reasonable proximity to the hearing aid and it will make the connection between the phone and the hearing aid and that will then provide amplified sound to the level that the hearing aid is programmed to provide rather than the telephone. In addition, it can be used and is indeed very often used without the use of the hearing aid because it's much louder than a standard phone, probably near between 5 and 10 times louder than the standard phone.
It has a number of additional features. You can see up here, for example, M1, M2, M3, and M4, so these are four speed dial buttons which can be allocated to any numbers that you have saved within the phone book feature of the phone, you have got a good extra large screen here which has got adjustable font sizes. Here you got the call and end button, and this is the power on and off button and here anytime during a live call you can activate the speaker phone feature which means the phone can be turned into a hands-free use rather than holding up to the ear. Good size keypad with very easy to see and use keys, paging feature down here to try and find the handset if it's not located on the base and then on the phone itself you’ve got a visual call ring indicator, so flashing indicator to tell you the phone is calling or ringing. On the side here, you’ve got the boost button which is designed to take the phone to its maximum level of amplification and a turn control button here. Obviously, you can here is the battery compartment and then on this side you’ve got the option to connect headset with a microphone boom so you can actually talk using the Skype headset or a similar type of headset or just attach headphones to it. And here are amplification buttons up and down which will take the phone up and down through its maximum volume potential and these are used in combination with this boost button here. Press this boost button and it takes the phone to its maximum level but you can instead adjust that up and down using these volume keys here.
So this is as said is a very popular phone, it comes with its own stand as you can see, and this will be plugged into the mains as well as into the telephone socket, you can pair additional handsets to this but it would be the 280/285 extra handset or the Amplidect 280/285 extra handset from Geemarc.
So a very good phone, very good value for money, very popular phone as a result but if you would like to know some more information about it please do give us a call on 0800-032-1301 anytime during the working week 9 until 5, or you can call–or out of hours you can email us at email@example.com
