The Roger Pen is a popular solution for people with hearing loss as it can help users to understand up to 62% more speech in noise and over distance compared to people with no hearing loss. It is also a stylish looking piece of assistive technology, available in 3 different colours, and has been designed with discretion in mind.

The Roger Pen features a directional microphone which automatically adapts to different noise environments including conference and interview settings. The user doesn’t have to change any settings – the microphone will automatically adjust to suit the noise environment.

The Roger Pen also comes complete with a handy lanyard which allows the user to hang the pen around the neck of the speaker that they are listening to. This is particularly useful in one-to-one conversations and means that the speech will sound clearer and be easier to understand. The microphone will automatically switch from being directional to omni-directional depending on which way up the pen is.

This piece of assistive technology is compatible with Roger receivers which attach directly to the user’s hearing aid or cochlear implant. This means that regardless of what hearing aid or cochlear implant the user has, there will be a compatible receiver.
