Amplicomms Powertel 196



The Amplicomms Powertel 196 is one of the loudest phones in production today.

The Powertel 196 separates itself from similar phones with its use of the latest technology to provide the clearest sound possible – even at very high levels of amplification. Built with a high-quality acoustic chamber, sound quality is maintained at all volume levels, and echo cancellation helps to eliminate acoustic feedback to ensure every word is heard as clearly as possible.

  • Adjustable tone and volume levels
  • All Amplicomms product have been tested line with BT, Talk Talk and Sky new Digital Hubs with a 100% success rate,
