What is a Roger Pen and how does it work?

Have you heard of Phonak’s Roger Pen but are not quite sure how it works or which situations are suitable for its use? If the answer is yes, don’t worry – you’re not alone.

Here at FM Hearing Systems we often receive a number of customer queries on Phonak’s Roger Pen, and as part of our commitment to outstanding customer service we thought we’d highlight some of key information and benefits of the Roger Pen in one handy blog piece.


What is a Roger Pen?

The Roger Pen is a wireless microphone that is used in combination with your hearing aids. It helps you to hear and understand more speech in noise and over distance. It’s the ideal solution for an all-inclusive listening experience.


How does a Roger Pen work?

The Roger Pen transmits the signal to your hearing aids through a receiver. These miniature receivers, which can be purchased from FM Hearing Systems, attach directly to your hearing aids or cochlear implant speech processors. For almost every hearing instrument and processor there is a compatible Roger receiver.

Integrated with Bluetooth for mobile phone calls, with a Roger Pen you can stay connected in virtually every listening situation.

Which environments can a Roger Pen be used in?

The Roger Pen is an all-inclusive wireless accessory that can be used in all environments. Whether at work, at home or in a public place a Roger Pen helps you stay connected and hear conversations whatever the background noise may be.


What are the benefits of a Roger Pen?

Using a Roger Pen alongside your hearing aids or cochlear implants enables you fully understand and engage in one-one or group conversations in busy day to day situations. Reducing background noise, a Roger Pen automatically brings the speaker’s words directly to your ears without you even pressing a button.

With a Roger Pen you can enjoy calls again by connecting the Pen to your smartphone via Bluetooth, or to ensure you never miss a wrong turn again, you can also connect the Pen to your car’s GPS system to hear the directions directly in your hearing aids.

Small, lightweight and stylish, it’s no word of a lie that the Roger Pen has been carefully designed with discretion in mind. Simply place the pen in the situation where maximised hearing is needed and let the Roger Pen do the rest of the work!
