Being able to get up when they need to make an important appointment is something they value. Fortunately, alarm clocks for the hearing impaired or deaf are available.

A previous article: The Best Alarm Clocks for the Hearing Impaired – Compared discusses common features of these clocks. It explains why it is difficult to compare different brands because of confusing terminologies used by different manufacturers.

  3. I had no idea about all these gadgets. I like the alarm clocks that shake the bed. I wonder how loud the alarm clocks for the hearing impaired and deaf are, they must be super loud…

    Many years ago I had a roomate who never ever heard her alarm clock and it would ring for more than an hour, and although I was in another room, I heard it loud and clear, it always drove me nuts, especially on my days off and I wanted to have a lie in. 😉

    • Yes, these alarm clocks for the hearing impaired are super loud. They are also very good for those who have difficulty waking up with regular alarm clocks. The bed shakers are helpful for those who do not like the loud noise or couples who the loud noise may disturb one partner.
