Cordless Phone Reviews and Ratings

Panasonic Hearing Impaired Phones


Panasonic has dipped a toe in the water to test the market for hearing impaired phones. It's first effort is best described as an amplified cordless phone with big buttons, big display and larger than average handset. By all indications its a winning formula.

While intended for the hard of hearing, sight impaired and arthritic there are thousands of consumers who simply want a phone that is louder and easier to use. The Panasonic KX-TG6592T fits the bill perfectly.

Pros and Cons

Panasonic Hearing Impaired Phone

On reading the technical specifications it becomes immediately apparent that the KX-TG6592T is very little different from any other top end Panasonic cordless phone. It's got the signature features found on all DECT 6.0 Plus phones: talking caller ID, call blocking and silent mode. They work really well and consumers are immediately hooked on using them.

The thing to be aware of is that this phone is not suitable for use by the severely hearing impaired. It doesn't provide sufficient amplification and lacks the associated features found on Clarity hearing impaired telephones such as the XLC2 and XLC3.4.

Competition

Panasonic's new phone is in direct competition with Uniden Loud and Clear phones. It will be interesting to see if Panasonic releases more models corresponding with Uniden's corded cordless options, as well as a model without an answering machine.

We would be very surprised if Panasonic became a serious threat to Clarity phones in the hearing impaired phone niche. Clarity is too well established and continues to update its products to stay ahead of the pack.

Summary

Reviews of Panasonic cordless phones are generally positive. On the rare occassion that we spot a negative review it nearly always relates to difficulties in hearing and or handsets that are difficult to grip. The KX-TG6592T was intended for those consumers and we suspect it may become a top seller.
