Summary: It said BIG buttons, NOT. Not big at all, just regular size. I was buying this for someone with glaucoma.Also it has to finish telling you the ID number before you can answer the phone. If you pick it up before it is finished the phone don't work at all. Needless to say very disappointed at my purchase. Very misleading to advertise big buttons. Also my local store did not have it. So was shipped in from another store. I'd rather see what I'm buying.
Summary: The phone does provide adequate hearing ability for me. However the instructions and the advice from Clarity personal were insufficient to overcome problems. My biggest problem was pushing talk to answer the phone and ending up with a dead phone. I solved the problem myself by eliminating the ring from the phone and using the ring at the base only. Clarity needs better instructions and better personal taking care of problems people have.
Summary: I purchased this phone for my elderly Mom who is hard of hearing. She was very happy with this phone. She is able to hear the caller clearly and can hear the phone ring as well. I would recommend this phone to anyone who is hard of hearing.
Summary: I bought this phone for my 79yo mother. She and I were both frustrated during calls and had trouble carrying on a conversation. I wasn't sure a new phone would help when I purchased this one but I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Clarity is aptly named. She is able to converse with ease on this phone, and I can hear her frail little voice as well. If I had one thing I could change, it would be that the number buttons be a larger for the senior user.
Summary: Phone was just what we were looking for. Bought for elderly person that has a hard time hearing and understanding over the phone. It works wonderfully. It lights up and flashes when it rings and also can have the sound set for better hearing. Great phone for the elderly or the hard of hearing. Will recommend this phone for sure.
Summary: I am not hearing impaired. I use this phone for technical support for people calling from all over North America. It allows me to adjust to compensate for poor call quality and even to boost my voice. I use it with a Plantronics headset. It comes with an extra set of batteries that charge in the base of the phone, so if the batteries start to die after about 6 hours of constant use, I can quickly replace them for a freshly charged set and recharge the others.
Summary: Would so love to tell you great things about this phone --- the buttons are big, it flashes as well as has a nice loud ringer, the display screen for caller id is lovely, and with the boost button the volume is wonderful ... but you get about two minutes of talk time before you get a low battery warning beep ... and this is with the handset remaining at all times on the charger except when being answered.
