Loud & Clear

The Audio Boost button on the side of the handset instantly increases the volume of your call. The ringer volume can also be adjusted up to 90dB which is as loud as a power lawnmower.

These feature are especially useful if you are hard of hearing or looking to use the phone in a noisy work environment.        

No More Nuisance Calls

With two different call-block functions,  there's no need to put up with nuisance calls any more!

In Manual Mode you can block up to 100 numbers during or after the call. In Automatic mode calls are only allowed from Saved or VIP numbers.

The large high-quality graphic display shows names and numbers clearly on an atractive blue backlit screen. 

Call duration is displayed during your conversation with Time or Handset Name displayed in Standby Mode.

The Bigtel 1500 is an attractive and easy to use cordless phone with a range of special features that make it particularly suited to people with hearing disabilities.  The one-touch audio boost button on the side of the handset increases the volume of your call to make sure you can hear conversations clearly. The 95dB extra loud ringer combined with a visual call indicator will make sure that you always know when you’ve got a caller. The Amplicomms Bigtel 1500 is hearing aid compatible and has been designed to eliminate background noise and interference when used with a hearing aid with a T-Coil function.

The call block function allows you to avoid nuisance calls by only allowing chosen numbers to make your phone ring.  There are several different modes available, including one which only allows calls from people in your phonebook and another which allows you create a blacklist of nuisance numbers.  Please notes that you will need to have an active “caller display” service from your phone line provider to use the call block function.

Because the Amplicomms 1500 is a cordless DECT phone, you have freedom to take the handset away from the base.  You might want to recline in a comfy chair without having to worry about stretching any wires, or to take your call with you as you move around your home.  You can also add additional handsets.  The Bigtel 1500 is available with either one or two additional handsets for you to use all around the house.  Place one in the bedroom or the conservatory. You will not need an additional phone line socket; just somewhere to plug the power in.
