Although hearing aids are a great piece of technology, they come with limitations such as issues with hearing from distances or hearing when there is substantial background noise. Phonak Roger is more of a generalised communication device which has the ability to turbo charge the performance of standard hearing aids. How do Phonak Roger microphones work? Phonak Roger microphones enable the user to experience a much higher quality of sound than your ordinary hearing aid. The microphones are external allowing them to be connected wirelessly to a user’s hearing aid in order to better hear in situations which prove difficult for standard devices. The Journal of audiology states that as many as 31% of hearing aid users report that they still have difficulty hearing when in noisy situations, this can be due to the fact most hearing aids are worn behind the users ear, allowing them to transmit sounds to the brain that the ear would typically be able to pick up, however when in a particularly noisy environment the sounds tend to be more difficult to identify by the hearing aid and can result in the user receiving distorted sounds or no sound at all. Research has proven that when a device such as the Roger Pen, Roger Table Mic or the Roger Select are being used, the hearing aid user can hear up to 10 times better than people with normal hearing. The use of the Roger technology enhances hearing not only in noisy environments but also across distance. Phonak Roger have a microphone to suit various needs and requirements for example, the Roger Pen is the pen shaped microphone and is most useful for directional voice conversations. Whereas the Roger Select would be more appropriate to use at a dinner table or meeting, this device sits on the table and will pick up voices surrounding the circle. Another significant addition to the Roger family is the Roger Touchscreen Mic, this is the ideal choice for a teacher within a classroom setting or for someone giving a presentation, in which the user can wear the device around their neck, for example, this will allow a teacher to stream directly to a student’s hearing aid.
