Three different hearing aid microphones from Phonak Roger family.

Roger™ wireless microphones

Roger is an intelligent wireless technology that transmits speech directly to hearing aids and cochlear implants, helping to overcome distance and noise. Functioning like a third ear, Roger allows people with hearing loss to learn, work and socialize more easily - a big step towards more inclusive societies and greater personal well-being. Roger technology works as a system that enables a speaker’s voice to be transmitted from a Roger wireless microphone to a listener’s hearing aid or cochlear implant via Roger receivers.

From classrooms to the office, to spending time with friends, you can feel more comfortable in any listening situation with the help of Roger technology.

For work 

Modern workplace is highly demanding, especially on people’s ability to participate in conversations. Roger empowers you to communicate effectively to be your most productive and creative self.

For school

Classroom noise, distance, and poor acoustics can create challenging learning conditions. The Roger for Education solutions are designed to address these challenges and create an optimal learning environment for children.

For higher education 

Being a student is an important period of life. While it can be exciting and fun, it can also be challenging for students with hearing loss. Hearing conversations in the classroom as well as outside is key to succeeding in all aspects of a student's life.

How Roger works

From the ability to calculate speech from 360 degrees to compatibility across almost all manufacturers, Roger gives people with hearing aids and cochlear implants the additional level of hearing performance they need to enjoy life more fully.

Adaptive to sound 

The Phonak unique adaptive behavior technology measures and analyzes noise levels to keep the Roger signal audible above background noise. Hearing aid users understand almost 10 times better in noise and over distance with Roger technology, than people with normal hearing.¹

MultiBeam 2.0 technology 

This sophisticated feature calculates speech from 360 degrees by using multiple microphones in six directions, and automatically chooses the direction with the best signal. In addition, it provides spatial information to know which direction the speech is coming from. Those with hearing loss can feel more supported in conversations thanks to this spatial information. *

Access to multiple talkers  

This feature allows for several Roger microphones to be connected in a MultiTalker Network and used together to provide those with hearing loss access to multiple talkers in any situation, whether it be a large work meeting, classrooms, or other multiple-talker environment.

Compatibility 

Roger is compatible with almost any hearing aid and cochlear implant that has a direct audio input or telecoil, whether from Phonak or an alternate brand.
