Phonak Roger Pen is a universal, cutting-edge wireless microphone that helps people with a hearing loss to understand more speech when in noise, in reverberant environments and listening over distance.
Designed with discretion in mind Phonak Roger Pen never looks out of place when in use. Phonak Roger Pen features adaptive wireless transmission, fully automated settings, wideband audio Bluetooth (you can connect wirelessly to your mobile phone). You can also connect wirelessly to TV and landline telephones, computers, MP3 players, hifis etc). Anything that has an analogue audio output it should be possible to incorporate into a Phonak Roger system.
Phonak Roger Pen has some very smart technology built in which adapts the microphone mode automatically based on how it is held or placed;
- Conference Mode – In a meeting or sat around a table for instance, place Phonak Roger Pen in the middle of the table and it recognises that it needs to go into an omni microphone mode. Effectively Phonak Roger Pen creates a ‘bubble’ around the table, as people around the table speak the Roger Pen picks up their voices and wirelessly transmits them straight into the wearer’s hearing aids via Roger receivers.
- Reporter Mode – In a noisier environment, or if the first situation becomes a little noisier, you can pick up Phonak Roger Pen and point it towards the person you need to hear the most. Phonak Roger Pen detects this has happened and almost immediately goes into a directional mode, focusing on and enhancing the voice you need to hear and at the same time markedly reducing the background noise you don’t want to hear. This change from omni mode to directional mode is almost startling the first time you experience it, it works so well at overcoming background noise and enhancing speech.
- Lanyard Mode – Hang Phonak Roger Pen around the neck of the person you want to hear (with the lanyard cord provided) in the toughest listening environments you encounter and it goes into a super directional microphone mode. This mode is particularly effective if you are some distance away from the speaker, 10 metres is easily achieved (and up to 20 metres in ideal conditions with no obstructions).
Using Phonak Roger Pen in the right way can give a hearing aid user a very distinct hearing advantage over a normally hearing person in a number of scenarios, now that is clever technology!
*Please note that Roger Pen is a transmitter, and as such needs Roger receiver(s) also to work, a Roger Pen will not transmit directly to hearing aids without Roger receiver(s) in the equation. Please read this page if unsure.
Phonak Roger Pen can also be used alongside other Roger Clip-On Mics and Roger Pens in a microphone network.
