Should have read the lower reviews

Bought these as replacements for ten year old KX-TGA711 and feature wise they wipe the floor with them, but you buy phones for sound quality and you obviously need to pay more than this. As a fair few have pointed out the sound on these isn't up to much. Using the speakerphone is ok so long as its not up loud else there's buzzing and distortion. My 771 set were as loud as these on level 3 and crystal clear, used normally they are quiet even with the volume on max, again my 771 were in a different league.
It's so annoying that before I used these my Mum said she needed new phones so I've bought a set for her. I don't think she's even going to be able to hear these if every set is like this. I know my old 771 were more expensive than these but in ten years I thought even budget phones would get the basics right. Pity my old ones took such a beating that I need to replace them. These feel very cheap in comparison but I could have lived with that, bad sound quality is something I can't.
