Mobile phone for hearing impaired
For people with hearing loss, making phone calls can be a challenge. Ringtones are often too soft and are barely heard. It can also be difficult to understand callers correctly without asking several times. Cell phones specially designed for the hearing impaired, both smartphones and cell phones, enable those affected to make phone calls again without any problems. In addition, they offer many other functions that make everyday life easier.
Mobile phone or smartphone for you?
At MySecondEar, you can find both cell phones and smartphones that are specially designed to meet the needs of hearing impaired people, hearing aid users and seniors. Our models offer you advantages such as extra-large buttons, volume control of the ringtone according to your needs, or even light signals that alert you to incoming calls. They also have a sophisticated direct dialing feature that allows you to dial a number with the touch of a button. Tone control for optimal high and low frequency output is also standard on all models. In addition, they are all designed for optimal compatibility with hearing aids. So whether you choose a cell phone or a smartphone depends primarily on your own preferences. Smartphones, for example, offer additional services with various apps, while cell phones are even easier to use. During the consultation, we will be happy to discuss your personal requirements and wishes and show you which model offers you the greatest advantages in everyday life.
Smartphones for the hearing impaired
The smartphones available at MySecondEar differ from normal smartphones in several ways. For example, the volume of the handset and ringtone can be set extremely loud - up to 90 decibels are possible. Thanks to screens with large fonts and user interfaces, they are also ideal as smartphones for seniors. Modern networking options also allow the hearing aid to be connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth: This allows you to make phone calls and listen to music directly through your hearing aid, which is both an earpiece and microphone, without disturbing your surroundings with a very high volume. It is also possible to control your hearing aid directly from your cell phone. This works with just a few clicks directly in an app on your smartphone. It is also possible to connect to other Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as TVs, in this way, which makes everyday life easier in many ways: including optimized sound quality and the elimination of tangled cables. Of course, hearing aid-compatible smartphones also offer you functions that include models for people with good hearing. For example, you can use them to take photos or use various apps for playing games, communicating or shopping.
Hearing aid compatible mobile phones
A cell phone for the hearing impaired or a cell phone for seniors offers virtually the same basic functions as a smartphone for the hard of hearing. The volume of these special cell phones can also be set much higher than comparable models for normal hearing people; in some cases, volumes of up to 100 decibels are possible. They are also hearing aid-compatible: they have an integrated Bluetooth function that makes it possible to make phone calls directly via the hearing aid. Comparatively large, illuminated buttons enable hearing aid users to operate the cell phone easily even in poor lighting conditions.
In addition, there are special functions such as light signals that draw attention to incoming calls, an emergency call button and voice output of the number keys. Unlike smartphones, however, cell phones can be used with far fewer additional functions, which are opened up by countless apps. Whether one wants to use these or prefers a simple hearing aid cell phone depends in most cases on personal preferences. Helpful companions in everyday life are in any case both types of cell phones.
