Pros:Low price, Great phone for the hearing impaired, great features
Cons:Older people may be hesitant to try something new.
The Bottom Line: This is a great way to help a hearing impaired family member. It has many neat features and can be used by those with normal hearing, too.
The Radio Shack 43-140 5.8 GHz is great for the family that has a hearing impaired member. It has an amplified earpiece that is hearing aid compatible. You can really hear the difference when you hit the Boost button. There is also a digital volume control to get the sound just right for best clarity.

Also for the hearing impaired, there are quite a few ring tones that you can choose so your loved one can hear the phone when it's ringing. Not only that, but there are red lights on the base and cordless handset that flash when the phone is ringing.
The keys one the keypads (cordless and base) have large buttons and are easy to see with large numbers on them.
The phone also has caller ID and memory number dialing.
The nice feature on this phone is that it can be used by those families which have both hearing impaired and normal hearing people simply by turning the Boost button on or off. This way, you don't blow the ears out of a person with normal hearing the way some other phones designed for the hearing impaired do!
The corded phone is absolutely great sounding and it's nice to have a corded phone which can't be misplaced as well as a cordless handset that allows convenience in other rooms.
The cordless handset has great range around the house and very good sound. It is susceptible to a little interference on occasion just like any cordless phone, but this is rare.
The only negative I have seen is that the cordless handset can sometimes get a feedback squeal if it is laid down on its face on a hard surface (table, counter, etc.) while it is turned on.
This phone would make a great gift for anyone with a family member who needs help hearing on the phone. The price is very good and it is easy to use.
