How loud is the side-tone you hear on the first phone? It should be just below the volume of your voice spoken into the phone. Some new phones have little to no side-tone at all, which at least for me, makes it rather awkward.

The sidetone is about that loud, so I guess what I'm experiencing is normal.

Lastly....two rotary phones is almost the start of a collection  ;)

Now I just need to get one of these, and my collection will be complete!

In case you have not noticed people tend to speak loudly into cell phones, that is because there is zero sidetone on a cell. It sounds like your 500's have normal sidetone.

Another phone related riddle solved by CRPF.  :)

Ah the classic doughnut phone in a very 70s brown.... Was never really into the whole design line series of sets.
