In addition to your regular hearing aids, there is also an array of useful accessories that can help to improve your life. Accessories are great, not just for improving face-to-face conversations, but for watching TV, listening to music, and talking on the phone. Daily tasks are made much easier and natural conversation flows more seamlessly when all parties can communicate clearly.
There is a range of home and office devices available to assist with your everyday needs.
The most popular among them is the Roger Pen, a discreet, cutting-edge wireless microphone. It helps people with hearing loss to better understand speech in noise and over distance by automatically adjusting to the surrounding noise. Roger has been scientifically proven to help hearing instrument users understand up to 62% more speech in noise and over distance than people without hearing loss.
The Roger Pen has fully automated settings, wide-band audio Bluetooth for mobile phone use, TV connectivity and an audio input for listening to multimedia. It can also be used alongside other Roger Clip-On Mics and Roger Pens to create a microphone network. It’s the ideal solution for an all-inclusive listening experience.
The Roger Pen gives your users the freedom to hear sounds from a distance with the same clarity as if they were standing right next to you. A speaker holding the Roger Pen or wearing it using the included lanyard can be heard from up to 20 meters away, as the Roger Pen streams sound wirelessly to the listener’s hearing aids.
Another very popular device is the DECT cordless phone, which automatically transmits phone conversations directly to both hearing aids for better speech understanding.
Receiving the phone signal in both ears significantly improves the ability to understand speech over the telephone, especially when background noise is present. Independent studies have shown that using this type of phone rather than a standard home phone, can improve speech understanding by over 40%. It’s easy to use and requires no additional devices as it streams the signs direct to the listener.
This phone also includes a booster mode that amplifies the sound when you’re not wearing your hearing aids.
If you’re looking to make communication in your home or office easier, then these kinds of products are perfectly suited to you.
