The Geemarc CL8500 amplified mobile phone is small to handle and easy to operate. If you want to save money, but don’t wish to compromise on quality, take a closer look. 

Why Try The Geemarc Cl8500 Mobile?

It can be a frustrating business, taking a call from a regular mobile phone when you’re hard of hearing. Both parties find themselves shouting to be heard and still the message doesn’t always get across. With an amplified mobile phone like the CL8500, you can carry it with you, knowing that if it rings, you will hear it and the conversation won’t be just one way.

This simple to operate amplified clamshell mobile phone offers an adjustable receiving volume of up to 35dB, so you can turn it up or down, depending on your listening environment and the severity of your hearing loss. The big dial buttons are perfect for fingers that might not be as dextrous as they once were and the talking keypad is great for those with impaired sight. The dual LCD colour display shows the date and time. It also tells you if you’ve missed a call. If you want to capture that perfect moment, just switch to the camera mode and click away.
