(NYSE: PLT), has created the perfect gift for the mother who's dropped her landline service to save money but has difficulty hearing on a cellphone. The cordless Clarity BT914™ is a home phone with Bluetooth® technology that allows users to make crystal clear calls on either landline or cellphone service.

One out of every three adults age 65 or older is hard of hearing, and nearly 50 million Americans of all ages suffer from some degree of hearing loss.

"So many older loved ones struggle with hearing loss, need an amplified phone but have dropped their landline service to cut costs -- we firmly believe they shouldn't suffer just because they are trying to save money," said Jamie van den Bergh, president of Clarity. "Whether they have landline or wireless service, the BT914 will dramatically improve phone conversations. This is a meaningful and helpful gift for millions in need."

The BT914™, Clarity's first Bluetooth® powered cordless phone, connects to the user's existing cellphone service with an easy setup. Users are then able to make and receive calls on the cordless phone using either landline or cellphone service. Incoming sounds are amplified up to 40 decibels, and most importantly, the device is hearing aid compatible.

Not only is the BT914™ easy to set up, but the device is designed specifically to address hearing and vision challenges, and is equipped with several senior-friendly features so it's easy for everyday use. These features include a large keypad and an easy-to-read Caller ID display that flashes as a visual ringer.

The BT914™ has a digital answering machine in its base and a loud and clear speakerphone in its headset. It features adjustable tone control so users can tweak the settings for different degrees of hearing loss. And it is built with DECT 6.0 interference-free technology. Up to five total home phone handsets can be placed in rooms throughout one household, combining the convenience of a mobile with the power of a Clarity amplified phone.
