Overcoming Challenging Listening Environments
At Hear4U we are committed to providing our customers with the very best hearing solutions, suited to their needs and lifestyle. For many people, hearing aids also go a long way towards restoring the sounds which have been lost. However, there are lots of listening environments which people with hearing aids may still find challenging.
Do you struggle to hear the sound from your television, make out the conversation in noisy environments or feel isolated in social situations?
Modern hearing aid technology is incredibly advanced, jam-packed with all sorts of features. Yet they are primarily designed to help people hear in direct, one-to-one conversations over short distances. If you imagine a giant bubble surrounding you, about 2m in diameter, this is where a hearing aid is working at its best. Outside of that bubble, its effectiveness gradually reduces.
This is where something called RogerTM comes in.
What is RogerTM Technology
Phonak have developed state of the art wireless microphones to give hearing aids a boost. Roger microphones reduce background noise, make it easier to hear in noisy environments, such as restaurants, or at a distance from the speaker. Roger devices transmit the signal to hearing aids through a receiver (a small device that attaches directly onto the hearing aids). Roger technology is compatible with all different hearing aids, from different manufacturers.
Roger devices can be helpful in the following situations:
