The Amplicomms brand offers a range of specialised phones for users with impaired hearing and sight. All of the models in the BigTel and PowerTel range combine functionality, technology and design, and offer features such as compatibility with hearing aids, extremely high reception volume and extra-loud ringing tones.

The Amplicomms BigTel 280 has been one of our most popular cordless phone with built in answering machine. We are pleased to now also provide it in a pre-paired twin pack, which offers a significant saving too.

The Duo set consists of the base unit BigTel 280 with a ready paired BigTel 201 extra handset. In terms of set up at home, the 280 base unit requires a mains supply and phone line socket. The additional handset only requires a mains supply.

If your home set up requires a third handset please see the triple pack.
