W425 Pro Extra Loud Big Button Cordless Telephone Review
In our family, both my father, and my mother-in-law have reduced vision. It makes trying to read small letters and numbers difficult and downright dangerous at times. The number buttons on this phone are absolutely fantastic! The bold, easy-to-read buttons glow when pushed. To give you an idea of how much bigger the numbers are than the average phone, I’ve taken a picture of the W425 next to my regular phone.
To be honest, I myself like the bigger numbers. At 42, I now need bifocals and struggle to read small font. There is NO struggling for any of us with the W425. Not for me, my dad, or my mother-in-law. This means not only less frustration and eye strain, but also a much safer situation in the case of emergencies.
Also wonderful features of this phone are the adjustable amplified volume controls – both on the ringer and the headset. It’s common that we lose some of our hearing capabilities as we age, and yet, most senior citizens I know don’t like to admit it! Still, Studies show that by age 75, almost 50% of seniors experience hearing loss, and men are more likely to experience it than women. This phone allows those with some hearing loss to simply adjust the volume instead of having to either piece together what they’ve heard, or ask for callers to repeat themselves. Staying linked and up to date with family and friends is important for all of us, especially senior citizens.
This product gives peace of mind to the giver, AND the receiver! :)
