Whether it’s dinner at a crowded restaurant or a busy meeting at the office, life can get noisy. This doesn’t just affect speech understanding. Hearing in background noise can take much more listening effort and concentration.
Even well-performing cochlear implant recipients can benefit from the enhanced audio of a wireless microphone. Using a wireless microphone is an excellent way to improve speech understanding by reducing background noise, therefore minimize listening effort.
That’s why we’re excited to announce the Roger™ 21 from Phonak.
Roger 21 is a wireless receiver completely integrated into a battery pack cover compatible with SONNET. It works with all Roger wireless microphones, offering a simple-to-use solution with excellent performance.
The benefits are clear:
- The wireless connectivity and performance of Roger wireless microphones
- A streamlined design that’s comfortable to wear and seamlessly integrated with SONNET
Roger 21 is designed to match the profile of SONNET. It simply replaces the SONNET battery pack cover and is available in all 6 SONNET base colors. It’s only slightly longer than a standard SONNET battery pack cover, so it’s comfortable for all-day wearing.
Roger 21 is compatible with standard SONNET battery options or SONNET rechargeable batteries. You only need to remove the standard battery pack cover and slide on the Roger 21. The wireless receiver is automatically activated once you close that battery pack.
With Roger 21, SONNET can easily connect to the full range of Roger™ wireless microphones from Phonak. You can connect with the push of a button. Let’s take a quick look at what each of these options can offer.
The Roger Pen features a directional microphone array, wideband Bluetooth connectivity for phone calls, and external audio input in a compact design. This makes it an excellent all-in-one communication option for SONNET wireless connectivity.
With the versatile Roger Pen, users can:
- Focus listening for better speech understanding in noise
- Hear a speaker clearly over distance
- Wirelessly connect to mobile phone calls
- Stream audio from the television or a tablet
