Product Description

Honey I’m home! Fifties in inspiration but bang up to date technology-wise, this Dreyfuss 500 iconic phone uses the standard BT connection and push button operation for modern convenience, yet when the phone rings you’ll hear the original bell sounding – just like in those old movies – and you’ll use the authentic heavyweight handset.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 6 Mar 2011
I love this telephone. It has a great weight to it, plus a real bell for the ringer. I needed a telephone for my home office, and wanted something classic, simple and wired in, so I always knew where it was! A great product, at a great price from this company and the delivery was pretty quick too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds as good as it looks 12 Jan 2010
A classic design and well worth every penny! The handset has a nice heft to it and it sounds great, even when calling overseas. There's no echo, as I've sometimes experienced with cheaper phones. Plus, you can't put a price on feeling like a character on Mad Men every time you pick up the phone!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Telephone 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase
This phone is perfect. The line is SO CLEAR! The handset feels great. The weight of this phone is just right. When you first get this phone- it is set to 'pulse' - so just turn it upside down and change the setting to 'TONE' so it will work properly. At the same time, set the volume to LOUD because this sets the volume of your conversation. There is no setting for ringer volume, which is a bit if a shame because I think the ring could be a bit louder. The push button numbers are easy to use. If you need to re-dial a number- simply press the large middle button on the bottom edge and it will call the last number dialed. If you have call waiting with your phone service and another call comes through- simply press the top portion of the middle button and it will put your present call on hold and enable you to talk to your new caller. Everything is in the instruction book- but I never read those so I just did this by using the phone. The coiled cord is long enough to walk about and do other things - it stretches easily to walk about 6 or 7 feet away from your phone. I love the ring. It is heavenly! I am buying another one of these to put upstairs. Apart from being the best phone I have bought in years- it is the finest looking one! It is especially great for people who want a stylish iconic look to their room and perfect for older people to use because it is not only familiar to them- but it is easy to use- no silly small screens to read that you can't even see or figure out how to work. Buy it and you will be so happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild and wolf dreyfus 500 9 Feb 2012
Love it,love it,love it!!! I wanted a stylish old looking phone for ages and spotted this one. It looks great, quite stylish and masculine, you really feel like you are in an old film! The ring is beautiful and the phone is heavy, really well made. The push buttons does make it more practical too. Highly recommend. Kids love answering the phone too !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality and service 27 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase
I ordered the Dreyfuss 500 to replace a grotty old BT phone with a broken ringer and always wanted a retro phone. I was aware that some models were reported to be poor quality, so took my time choosing this one. It arrived super quick, works as it should and feels well-made (the receiver is actually quite heavy!). I like the push buttons (though on a dial take time to get used to) and the secret redial and hold functions on the central disc. It has a nice 'bring bring' ring tone and sounds fine - I can't recommend it more highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to basics-with modern technology. 16 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase
My old phone, a BT Decor 1200, was fine, but every so often, it would cut out during conversation(not my line,had that checked). Then I saw this one,a Wild & Wolf Dreyfuss 500, and what a beautiful piece of kit! Ok, it doesn't have caller ID etc, but I couldn't be more happier with it. It's good and solid with a nice heavy feel to it,(and it doesn't cut out!) I would gladly recommend this phone to anyone! Go ahead, BUY IT!!

Pleased when I received it. It felt well made, looked stylish. I like the retro look, that's mainly why I bought it, (apart from being able to make and receive phone calls with it)

After a week, found that I wasn't getting a dial tone. Checked that everything was plugged in, correctly, still no dial tone. Fiddled about with the phone, dial tone came back. Then I was on the phone to someone, and during the conversation, the volume faded until I couldn't hear the person on the other end any more, though they could hear me. Put the receiver down, more fiddling with cables and connections, checked the volume control etc, made sure it was set on high. This problem is recurring,in the middle of a call the volume fades, or I pick up the receiver and there is no audible dial tone, so obviously I will be returning it. Maybe I've just got a dud, and a replacement would be OK, but I have no time to mess about, so I will be seeking a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this, get one. 9 April 2013
By Junior
Verified Purchase
Initial disappointment at not being able to order old style dial phone due to concern that it wouldn't be compatible with automated phone services was soon dispelled. Fantastic quality. My previously crackly phone line now clear as a bell. Heavyweight phone gives a reassuring substance to this model but still easy to move if required.
Would highly recommend this phone for great value for money and great looks.

1.0 out of 5 stars Naff phone
Although at first sight and feel this product looks good with a solid heft, it is in fact naff. The receiver does not sit comfortably on the body of the phone. Read more

Purchased it a year ago but just started using it today : the speaker doesn't work, I can't be heard. I can throw it away, it's as good as useless. So disappointed.
