FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2013) - During phone conversations with your dad, do you often repeat words or find yourself yelling into the phone? If so, he is likely one of the 36 million Americans with hearing loss, a widespread health issue that affects men more than women.
Good news for dads everywhere, RadioShack is offering a special promotion this Father's Day on amplified phones from Clarity, a division of Plantronics (
The Clarity D714™ is a cordless big-button phone that amplifies incoming sound up to 40dB, or twenty times louder than standard home phones, while removing unwanted and distracting noises. The D714 also utilizes DECT 6.0 technology and includes four adjustable tone settings to provide a customized listening experience. It features an extra loud and clear speakerphone for hands-free conversations along with a digital answering machine. The D714 is hearing aid compatible and is expandable with up to 5 handsets. Additionally, it is equipped with a large, easy-to-read Caller ID display for users with low vision and soft-touch and contoured keys to help people contend with dexterity issues like Arthritis.
The Clarity P400™ is a corded amplified phone with PicturePerfect Dialing -- a feature that lets users program photos to dial buttons to make calling easier, especially for people with memory difficulties. The phone amplifies conversations up to 26db, making it ideal for those with mild-to-moderate hearing loss. The P400 also features a bright visual ringer so users don't miss any calls.
"Phone calls are simple but incredibly important of Father's Day," said Carsten Trads, president of Clarity. "So many men struggle with hearing loss, and they don't realize helpful solutions exist. Rather than adding another tie to dad's collection, you can give him an amplified phone that will make conversations more enjoyable for everyone in the family."
Both the D714 and P400 are hearing aid compatible. The two phones can be purchased at RadioShack locations across the United States or online at www.radioshack.com.
