Help Dad Hear Clearly This Father's Day

RadioShack Offers Special Pricing on Clarity Amplified Phones Designed for Millions of Americans With Hearing Loss

CHATTANOOGA, TN--(Marketwire - Jun 11, 2012) - If Dad asks you to speak up or has difficulty understanding you on the phone, you're not alone, according to studies from the Better Hearing Institute. Sixty percent of the 34 million Americans with hearing loss are male. With Father's Day fast approaching, RadioShack is offering reduced pricing on two Clarity amplified telephones designed for the growing number of people like your dad with hearing loss.

Starting June 3 through June 16, RadioShack will offer $20.00 off two of Clarity's amplified cordless phones -- the Clarity D613™ and the D714™ -- for $59.99 each.

Clarity is a division of Plantronics (NYSE: PLT) that creates smart communication solutions for seniors. Both phones not only address hearing loss but other concerns experienced by many aging Americans, including low vision, limited dexterity and mobility.

"Many families are hundreds of miles apart so phone conversations become even more important on special occasions like Father's Day," said Carsten Trads, president of Clarity. "In particular, men are struggling with hearing loss, so our amplified phones are ideal gift options for Father's Day. We're excited RadioShack has decided to reduce the prices as these are helpful products that can make a noticeable impact on the quality of someone's life."

The cordless Clarity D613™ received the Arthritis Foundation's esteemed Ease-of-Use approval for its contoured handset shape and soft-touch dial pad. It amplifies incoming audio up to 30 decibels and uses DECT 6.0 technology for crisp, clear, interference-free communication. It has a built-in speakerphone and digital answering machine, and it also includes large, easy-to-push buttons with bold labels.

The Clarity D714™ 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. Additionally, the phone is equipped with a digital answering machine and a large, easy-to-read Caller ID display.

Both the D613 and D714 are hearing aid and T-Coil compatible and comply with TIA-1083 guidelines.
