At FM Hearing Systems we can supply Phonak Roger receivers that conveniently clip to the bottom of your hearing aids (if you wear BTE (behind the ear) hearing aids), tucked away neatly and discreetly, or you can wear a neck worn receiver with nothing clipped to your hearing aids.
Mostly and where we can, we advise that people use ear level receivers, particularly when wearing ‘behind the ear’ hearing aids, and where ‘ear level’ is not possible often there is an alternative with some kind of neck worn receiver.
Phonak Roger ear level receivers can be universal (Like Phonak Roger X – they work in conjunction with any brand of hearing aid) or Integrated – they are specially designed to work with specific Phonak ‘behind the ear’ hearing aids, matching in design with Phonak hearing aids in colour etc).
If the hearing aid wearer is using any brand of hearing aid but Phonak the choice of ear level receiver needs to be Roger X, if the wearer is using Phonak hearing aids the alternatives are Integrated or Roger X.
The image to the left shows firstly a Phonak hearing aid with an integrated receiver attached, and then a Phonak hearing aid with a DAI shoe (used with all different brands of hearing aids as an interface to connect to Roger X receivers) and a Roger X receiver.
Top Tip for Phonak hearing aid wearers – integrated receivers are a little more elegant for sure, but it is worth considering how long you will be using your present Phonak hearing aids. If it is reasonably likely within a few years the hearing aids will be changed for a different model (Phonak or other brand), a universal receiver such as a Phonak Roger X may be a better option.
