The Amplicomms PowerTel 880 Combo is manufactured by Amplicomms, a company dedicated to providing communication solutions to the hearing impaired. Unlike many phone manufacturers who build standard phones and add a degree of amplification, Amplicomms phones are designed from the outset with hearing impairment in mind. HearingDirect only stocks phones from manufacturers committed to the provision of amplified products.

"Combo" phone systems are becoming increasingly popular and the PowerTel 880 is combination of the PowerTel 58 desk phone and the PowerTel 701 cordless phone. As individual devices these are both very high quality devices providing excellent levels of amplification. In combination they can be the total solution that you are looking for. The key features deliver an integrated answering machine (on the PowerTel 58 desk phone) and high amplification with low distortion through both devices.

The full feature set is detailed below and while it is an impressive list don’t be over-awed as they are delivered fully paired so ready to use. Simply plug in the desk phone with power and a landline, position the cordless handset wherever you want it in the house and you are ready to go.
