It was a breeze to set up the VTech CS6719. We set the time and date, added numbers to its directory, adjusted the volume and ring tones, and turned off key tones in less than five minutes.
Sound quality for this model scored a 7 out of 10, with our panel noting that it was on the quieter side of phones we looked at, but that is was very clear.
This phone has very good voice quality when talking and excellent when listening.
Experts and owners say its voice quality is good.
We like the CS6719’s simplicity and sound quality. We got to our test home’s back fence with clear voice quality on both sides of a conversation. Both parties found the audio as good as with any other cordless phone, with no drops or hiccups. The CS6719 also meets the TIA-1083 (hearing aid) standard.

What reviewers didn't like

It doesn’t have an answering machine.
This phone does not have an answering machine or the ability to link to mobile devices. Handsfree operation is impossible due to the lack of a headset jack or a belt clip on the handsets.
On the downside, this phone lacks auto talk, and a headset jack, which is a useful feature for hands-free operation.
It doesn’t have built-in voicemail recording (i.e., an answering machine)
