Father's Day Gift: Help Dad Hear Clearly
RadioShack Offers Father's Day Discount on Clarity Amplified Phones
to Help Dads With Hearing Loss
FORT WORTH, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/13 -- 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 (NYSE: PLT), that are designed to make
conversations clearer and easier to understand. From June 9th through
June 22nd, RadioShack will offer two of Clarity's amplified phones at
-- Clarity D714, now $59.99 (reduced from $79.99)
-- Clarity P400, now $44.99 (reduced from $64.99)
The Clarity D714(TM) 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(TM) 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.
