Staefa, Switzerland – January 15, 2015 – Phonak announces the launch of the Roger EasyPen, another Roger wireless microphone for adults and teenagers. The Roger EasyPen is an inconspicuous device in the shape of an ordinary pen, but it is packed with Roger technology which has been scientifically proven to help hearing instrument users understand up to 62%* more speech in noise and over distance than people with no hearing loss. The discreet design helps users to take the device to meetings and public places, where normally they often would hesitate to bring assistive listening devices. The new Roger EasyPen extends the already powerful Roger portfolio of the Roger Pen and Roger Clip-On Mic and bundles maximum performance with ultimate simplicity.
