Advice: best call quality for man with lousy hearing

Discussion in 'alt.cellular.verizon' started by zwerl1@yahoo.com, Dec 8, 2008.

  1. I'm 62; noticing that I can't hear very well any more. I want a phone
    that has the best call quality. My wife has an old Moto E815 that I
    hear fine on - excellent reception, excellent call quality. My LG
    VX5400 sounds much worse - not even close (too bad - I like the little
    phone - I use it for calls and a little texting - no music). But the
    call quality of the Moto is MILES better. Can anyone give me a
    suggestion as to which current phone is supposed to have really good
    call quality? Price not an issue. Thanks.

    Try getting a hearing aid or two! Expensive but it beats the hell out
    of saying "What?" all the time.

    Try to get an E815 on Ebay. I did audio/acoustics ( till laidoff) at
    MOT . We used the E815 as a speech quality benchmark. While temping at
    VZW They used an LG 5400 or 6400 I think. moibiles models change SO
    fast. With everyones attention on Media/ ringtones text& Internet,
    Loud clear speech quality is an evasive goal that's not High on the
    priority list :(

    Might work but typically doesn't even on phone 'designed' to be hearing aid
    compatible. BTDT on both the user and designer side.

    My best, personal, result was with a bluetooth head set but even there I
    had to pick and chose the SPECIFIC unit I used.

    Finally gave up and use, for the most part now use text messages.

    An aside: most old men like you and me have lost the high end hearing so
    what we do here is very muffled (low end audio). I did some testing on the
    bluetooth sets that worked for me and they were all heavy on the higher
    frequencies.

    DON'T get the V750. The audio on that phone is so garbled at times.
    Especially when the caller is also using a cell phone.
    20% of the calls I can't understand the other person.

    I left Sprint and never had any trouble hearing clearly.
