It is hard to believe how much better and clearer the speakers are than standard phones. This phone is life altering for the hearing impaired. I was avoiding phone conversations, but no more. They are expensive, but worth it. You will love them.
We bought the phones because my dad was always having problems hearing on the regular KXT cordless phones. He has really bad hearing due to working with loud printing presses his entire life and he refuses to get hearing aids. Since these phones he can now hear to answer the phone as well as hear the conversation and is excited to join in. I wish I had thought about this solutions a long time ago.
Good product. Still have trouble understanding people on the handset speaker with volume maxed out it isn't very loud at all. I have good hearing but have trouble with background noise and that's why I invested in this set. Not cheap. I rate as good, but not great for the money I haven't tried the slow speech feature yet, the speed of talking isn't normally my issue, it is the volume on the speaker phone that isn't loud enough. Some calls are barely audible on speaker and that is primarily how I answer the phone (with speaker function). I do like all the features.
