We bought this set of phones for my mother in law, and she's very pleased with them.
Like many older people, her hearing is steadily deteriorating. These phones amplify and clarify incoming calls, and for her, they work perfectly. She can now hear the phone ringing, and she has no trouble understanding what callers are saying. They're worth every penny for her.
It's important to understand that hearing loss is very highly individualized. The perfect phone for one person may not work at all for another person. These phones offer a great deal of adjustment for the volume and tone of incoming calls. They also allow the volume of the ring tone to be adjusted, and they will even announce the incoming caller's Caller ID information. I think all of this means that a lot of people will be able to benefit from these phones.
Bottom line: They work perfectly for my mother in law, and they probably can be adjusted so as to work for many hard-of-hearing people. There's no such thing as a universally perfect phone for those who need help with hearing, but these come close. I recommend them most highly.
