Excellent Clarity Professional C4220 Amplified Phone
on October 20, 2008
I needed a telephone that can boost the caller's voice by at least 50 decibels (db). There are not many telephones that have that much amplification power, but the Clarity C4220 does (as well as a few other brands).
' The Clarity telephones are unique in that they not only boost the sound level of the caller's voice, but also eliminate background noise and give you tone adjustment controls to give you the best quality signal to noise ratio.
' This telephone has an extra loud visual ringer that can amplify the ringer volume up to 88db.
' The Clarity C4220 has a speaker phone that is handy when you are trying to keep up with automated menus asking you to make a number selection on your keyboard and listen too.
' This telephone can be wall mounted.
' This telephone also gives you the choice of using its 2.5mm jack for a headset, or the 3.5mm jack for a neck loop.
' A setting will automatically return the amplification level back to the normal level when I hang up. However, if I was the only one using this telephone, I could keep the same amplification I previously used.
' Be aware that the manufacturer recommends plugging the power cord for this telephone into a wall outlet that has no other appliances plugged into that same outlet. Failure to do this can cause the telephone to act erratic. Otherwise, this telephone is very dependable and operates very well.
After years of trying various amplified telephones, I can highly recommend the Clarity telephones.
