Amplified Phone Terminology

Posted by Carl Arnold on

When researching which amplified phone is best for you or your loved one you will come across terms that you may not understand. We are here to help with that!

Two of the most common terms you will see are “DECT 6.0” and “TIA-1083 compliant”.

“DECT CT 6.0” refers to a new frequency that virtually eliminates all interference between your phone and other electronic devices in the home. It allows other handsets to be easily connected to the system and allows you to make internal calls to the other handsets in the home. The battery life for DECT phones tends to last up to 30% longer than cordless phones on other frequencies such as 5.8GHz and 2.4GHz.

“TIA-1083 compliant” refers to a higher phone standard which was developed due to complaints from those with hearing aids that cordless phones caused interference with their hearing aids. Phones which are TIA-1083 compliant significantly reduce and sometimes eliminate hearing aid interference. The amplified phones which are TIA-1083 compliant will include that notation in the product description on our site.

We know that finding just the right phone or product for yourself or your loved one can be a daunting task. We are always here to help - just give us a call or send us an email!
