    I’d never heard of this brand before. However, once I knew that Siemens were behind it my confidence increased. Easy to set up and operate, and with a choice of ring melodies which do not induce a coronary when they burst into action, plus clear (and loud) sound all makes for a great buy. Decent build quality and weight of the handset as well as many other features are present. The SOS function is particularly useful if this is a phone for an older member of the family. I would readily recommend this product for anyone thinking of replacing their existing cordless phone who needs something with great audio as well as decent looks.

    I have progressive deafness which started as a teenager (now 72). I’ve tried several cordless ‘phones which have not quite done the job. This one is fantastic. It is not cheap, but my money was well-spent. It is the only system I’ve experienced where I have to turn the volume DOWN! Both the base-station with answering machine and the twin handsets are clearly audible with my (very expensive) hearing aids OUT. Setting up is easy but I’ll mention a few tips which I had to work out despite the clear instruction book: enter the contact names without the suggested opening space otherwise the search by initial letter does not work properly; it takes a very long time for the initial full charge to run down, but it hardly matters as the battery life is phenomenal and all that the full run-down does is set the range of the attery meter icon; it is very simple to copy directory entries between handsets. Also the pre-recorded answer announcement is so attractive that I have not recorded my own! I strongly recommend this as a telephone for people with dodgy hearing, despite the price, which places it fairly low down in the Which Best Buys.

    I have corrected my rating as I confused the star-rating option. Of course I gave it FIVE stars!

    At the time of writing,bought 2 single units at £19.97 each from Amazon.Used one base as the master unit and the other as a charger unit for the extension handset which obviously does not require the telephone wire provided to be connected.(Just registered the extra handset to the base master unit as per instruction manual).Works great and £32.60 cheaper than purchasing the twin unit.
