Loudspeakers are exceptionally useful communication aids – they allow for hands-free calling, conference calls and other conveniences which can't be achieved through a typical phone speaker. While the conference phone is typically a stationary desk-bound device, there are plenty of cordless phones which integrate loudspeakers into their design, letting you take your calling capabilities with you on the move.
5. Siemens Gigaset E500A
- HSP Sound for excellent audio on both ends of the line
- Easy-to-use integrated digital answering machine
- 20 hours of talk time, 240 hours of standby
- Energy saving ECO DECT technology
The decision to include the Siemens Gigaset E500A on this list was pretty simple. It is an all around excellent cordless phone, with fantastic audio quality and a rich feature set which leaves little to be desired. The loudspeaker is the cherry on top, which also boasts the great audio quality demonstrated by the handset.
Great for use in the home, the Gigaset E500A is more than capable of providing long hours of reliable talk time with its long-lasting battery.
4. BT 4500
- Nuisance Call Blocking
- Optional volume boost and hearing aid compatibility
- 60-Minute answering machine
User friendly and highly accessible with its over sized buttons and simple operation, the BT 4500 provides everything needed to be your one-stop solution for home communications. Going a bit above and beyond the standard features in the cordless phone crowd, the BT 4500 includes nuisance call blocking features to keep your phone from ringing when you don't want to be disturbed.
3. Panasonic KX-TG 6721
- Crystal-clear audio quality
- 100 name and number phonebook
- One Touch Eco Mode
- Budget price
Although this offering from Panasonic might not be quite as packed with features as the fancy offerings from Gigaset and BT above, we included it in this list because it has a great speaker phone and a basic yet well-rounded feature set which makes it an exceptional bargain for its highly affordable sub-£30 price tag. The Panasonic KX-TG 6721 and its included loudspeaker is more than adequate for convenient usage.
2. Siemens Gigaset S795
- Brilliant high-quality colour TFT display
- Gigantic 3-number per entry, 500-contact phone book
- Easy data synchronisation for phone book management
- HSP Sound for uncompromising audio quality
Another offering from Gigaset, another fantastic loudspeaker-equipped cordless phone selection. Having a fair amount in common with our first Gigaset selection on this list, the Siemens Gigaset S795 is sort of the next evolution of the E500A, incorporating a few more bells and whistles to round it off, like its incredibly massive phone book and helpful management features. You can easily back up or restore your S795's phone book with the included mini-USB.
1. Panasonic KX-TG 8061
- Integrated 20-minute answering machine
- 200 entry phonebook
- Night mode
- ECO Mode reduces power consumption
Last but hardly least on our list is the Panasonic KX-TG 8061. Like the other Panasonic selected for this round-up, it is a fairly basic device, but exceptionally reliable and with a quality loudspeaker. And, like the other Panasonic, it features a bargain price tag which help land its place on this list. As a wonderful selection for anyone who wants a well-performing cordless phone equipped with loudspeaker, the KX-TG 8061 won't disappoint with its crisp audio and durable, quality construction.
