Today’s hearing aid technology does an excellent job of improving speech understanding. However, 31% of hearing aid wearers report they still have challenges hearing in noisy situations1. Roger microphones are designed to help you in meetings and conversations when there is a distance to the talker or distracting background noise. Our technology transmits speech directly to your hearing aids, providing improved speech recognition over distance and in noisy environmets2,3.
