Slow Talk Mode for Better Understanding

To understand quick-talking callers and garbled or rapid-fire voice messages, this phone comes with one-touch Slow Talk control to automatically slow the speed of caller voices while conversing in real time. It is ideal for clarifying conversations and conference calls, screening incoming calls and playing back voice messages. Slow Talk touch buttons are conveniently located on both the base unit and handsets.

Easy to See, Easy to Use

The amplified KX-TGM490 also offer more convenient features with enlarged touch controls. Backlit, easily visible buttons let you choose 6 tone levels (and custom tone levels) for clarifying different voice types. Plus, boost caller voices by up to 50 dB and set the volume of the ringer tone to up to 110 dB. A white-backlit LCD and enlarged backlit numeric call dial keypad make calling quick and simple in any light conditions.

Convenience Features

Along with amplified features, the KX-TGM490 also makes everyday calling, conversing and messaging easier. It features a speakerphone, intercom, DECT 6.0 Plus for optimum signal range, talking digit keypad, 100-number phonebook, 9 speed dial numbers, up to 15 minutes of voice messaging and it is expandable to 6 handsets.

Audible / Visual Call Alerts

To complement the system's 15 ringtone options, bright red LED visual ringers on the base unit and handsets also flash when someone calls. And together with Panasonic's Talking Caller ID, the KX-TGM490 system not only alerts you audibly and visibly to incoming calls, but also tells you who's calling.
