How to Choose the Right Cordless Amplified Telephone: A Guide

Choosing the right cordless amplified telephone can be a daunting task, especially if you're new to the world of amplified phones. With so many options available, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. But don't worry, we've got you covered! In this guide, we'll walk you through the key features you should consider when selecting a cordless amplified telephone.


One of the newest and most popular features of cordless amplified phones is Bluetooth connectivity. This feature allows you to pair your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone with your home phone and make/receive calls on your amplified home telephone. This is a great feature for those who want to keep their smartphone out of sight or charge it while still being able to take calls.

Answering Machines

An integrated answering machine is an important feature for anyone concerned about missing calls while they're away from home. With an answering machine, you can record a personalized greeting and retrieve messages at your convenience. When selecting a cordless amplified telephone, be sure to consider the answering machine options. To view our collection of cordless telephones that include a built-in answering machine, click here.

If this is an important feature for you, be sure to select a cordless amplified telephone that offers wall mounting options. To view our collection of cordless phones with this option, click here.

Handset Size and Weight

The size and weight of the handset may not seem like a big deal, but it can make a big difference in terms of comfort and ease of use. Be sure to select a cordless amplified telephone with a handset that feels comfortable in your hand and is easy to hold for extended periods of time.


If you have a large home or plan to use the phone outside, it's important to consider the range of the cordless telephone. The range can vary depending on the model, so make sure to choose a phone with a range that suits your needs. Keep in mind that walls and other obstacles can affect the range, so consider the layout of your home as well.

Battery life

Since cordless amplified telephones rely on rechargeable batteries, it's important to consider the battery life of the phone. Look for a phone with a long battery life to avoid constantly having to recharge it. Additionally, consider the type of batteries the phone uses and how easy they are to replace if needed.

Expansion Handsets

An expansion handset is a great accessory to most cordless amplified telephones. It allows you to place additional phones throughout your home without being tied to available phone lines or jacks. The expansion handsets require only an outlet for power and receive the phone signal from the base phone.

However, it's important to note that they will only work when used as an additional phone and require the purchase of the main telephone for the expansions to function. Since almost all cordless telephones that we offer have this expansion option, we won't be including it as a filtering option.

After you've explored all of these filtering options, if you still have questions or need assistance in finding the perfect phone, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our product experts are happy to assist you in making the right selection to meet your needs. With the right cordless amplified telephone, you'll be able to enjoy clear, amplified sound and stay connected with ease.
