telephones for humans
on 28 February 2012
Like most of us we have a land line telephone in the home, but the average phone is a lump of plastic designed by a cartoon character with three lumpy fingers.
Once upon a time things used around the home were made for people to use without annoying you, a lot of modern devices are so light that whilst trying to have a conversation, the base section will try and follow you around the room, or the handset is flat and wide which means holding it with thumb and forefinger.
Not this one, the base is not as heavy as I thought it would be, but it has nice firm little rubber feet that keeps it put.
The handset is a solid piece of brass and wood and the sound is crisp and clean, the push buttons feel a little squidgy at first but since they are in a circle finding them is more intuative than the flat versions, the ring is a real bell that tinkles pleasantly instead of the trilling noise a lot of the others seem to have fitted, overall a comfortable unit to use and it's classic design reminds you of something that modern devices lack, which in my opinion, is a sense of style.
