An amplified cordless telephone with built in answering machine and hearing aid compatibility. 

Now available at: https://shop.irishdeaf.com/geemarc-amplidect-295-amplified-cordless-telephone-with-answerphone

The AmpliDECT 295 is a stylish amplified cordless phone with an adjustable receiver volume of up to 30dB! It is a good choice for anybody with a hearing loss and with both adjustable speaker and ringer volumes.

In the opinion of our evaluation panel, this is a well designed phone with a good sound quality. It does not have a tone control, which means that although it has a good level of amplification, the bass/treble cannot be adjusted to suit your particular hearing loss. Having said that, it is excellent value for money, particularly considering the answerphone facility which is useful for many people.

New addition: https://shop.irishdeaf.com/emporia-smart.4

The S4 is a smartphone designed for the times we live in. Not only is it compact and easy to use, but it also incorporates new features which are especially useful when we all need to be extra vigilant.

The very latest NFC technology (Near Field Communication) allows the phone to be used for contactless payment which is an important contribution to greater personal safety in these times of social distancing. In addition, the S4 has a QR scanner pre-installed which makes it perfect for track and trace logging and a handy Magnifier app that is the perfect helper when you leave your glasses behind.

The 5 inch, high resolution, touch screen is perfect for carrying out all tasks, and the 13 megapixel main camera and 5 mp front camera are ideal for having video calls with friends and family using the pre-installed WhatsApp.

It is also IP54-certified (dust and splash-proof), has a replaceable battery and, like all emporia phones it has an emergency button on the back, but this can be covered by a second back panel if not needed.

The S4 also comes with our unique detailed training book which shows users how to confidently master their smartphone, learning at their own pace and using new features like contactless payments. This training book clearly outlines everything you need to know with regards to using a smartphone, with fantastic FAQ’s and hints and tips to help you become really confident with the technology. This is an excellent introduction to smartphones, apps and how to use them.

New product added: https://shop.irishdeaf.com/emporia-smart.5

The Emporia SMART.5 is a hearing aid compatible, Android 4G Smartphone that is uniquely designed to be easy to use by older generations who want to take a step towards interacting with modern technology.

It is supplied with a unique 135 page training book that clearly outlines everything you need to know with regards to using a smartphone, with fantastic FAQ’s and hints and tips to help you become really confident with the technology. This is an excellent introduction to smartphones, apps and how to use them.

The emporia Smartcover (included) is a unique accessory. The protective case opens like a book and its front is equipped with four buttons that can each be assigned a different function. This means the functions you have selected for these buttons can be used even when the cover is closed. Even better, these buttons cannot be pressed accidentally and cause you to make ‘pocket calls’, because they’ll only respond to the capacitive voltage of your skin.

The Smart.5 is also supplied with a charging cradle which is great for people who struggle to plug in charging cables. It is easy to slot the phone onto the cradle and if you’re using the Smartcover, this can be left in place.
