Question

How do the new technology features in Roger On™ improve upon its predecessors?

Answer

With the introduction of the new Roger On microphone, available in mid-June 2021, Phonak is excited to share how we’re evolving patient benefits.

First of all – it’s small and light, just about half the size of the Roger Pen.

There are three microphone modes available with this microphone: Lanyard mode, Table Mode, and pointing mode.

In fact, new in the Roger On mic is Pointing Mode 2.0, which uses three microphones in a row allowing the microphone to zoom in on the person talking. This new feature is great when noise is present or in a group conversation where there is a distance to a speaker. Think about environments where you can’t really put the mic down – maybe a fellowship hour at church, or an on-the-go conversation at work – these are the situations when patients can simply point the mic at the speaker. It provides the flexibility to focus on conversations that truly matter.

The three microphones inside of Roger On creates different microphone beams that combine to create a very well-defined, zooming beamformer.

Already available in some existing Roger Microphones is MultiBeam technology. New in the Roger On microphone, Phonak has introduced MultiBeam 2.0. technology. It analyzes the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of each directional beam hundreds of times per second, and the beam containing the highest SNR is activated. Delivered to the hearing aids*, this spatial information supports patients in conversations.

This provides patients with more freedom, such as, turning their head quicker and still receiving both the speech and the visual cues needed for understanding. If these hearing performance innovations weren’t exciting enough, then we also introduce a great new ease of use solution with the Roger On.

Now patients can use the myRogerMic app, which allows you to steer the microphone, mute and unmute, and more. The myRogerMic app allows patients to personalize their settings of the Roger On microphone according to the environment, giving them the freedom to simply enjoy the moment. We all know from our personal lives, that something that’s easy to use is more likely to actually be helpful. The good news for your practice is that 82% of patients find Roger easy to use.

Besides all the incredible feature upgrades that Roger On touts, it also boasts a full line-up of industry leading features that have become Roger standards, such as multi-talker network 

capability, compatibility across hearing aid and cochlear implant brands and incredible speech in noise benefit.

*The spatial information only works with hearing aids with RogerDirect.
