The Roger Pen is a cutting-edge wireless microphone, which enables clients to hear and understand more speech in loud noise and over distance. Its settings automatically adjust to suit its environment based on acoustic scene analysis and its orientation. The Roger Pen is ideal for adults and teenagers.
Designed particularly with discretion in mind, the Roger Pen features adaptive wireless transmission, fully automated settings, wideband 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 in a microphone network.
Roger is the latest wireless technology from Phonak. Digital processing makes speech significantly clearer – automatically adjusting to enhance understanding and comprehension considerably, even in noisy situations. For more information, click here.
The Roger Pen is used with miniature Roger receivers, which attach directly to hearing aids or cochlear implants. These are sold separately and come in different models. Please click here for more information.
When to use it? The Roger Pen will make a real difference in challenging listening situations, such as:
- in loud noise
- over distance
- when there are several speakers.
Roger Pen Features:
- Uses the Phonak Roger digital wireless platform
- Sophisticated and discrete design
- Automatic adjustment between different microphone modes, depending on which way up the Pen is and the level of background noise
- Advanced beamforming will improve speech understanding when used in a directional microphone setting (pointed towards a particular speaker) or in noisy conference-style situations
- Bluetooth for mobile phone use - hands free functionality
- Multiple microphones can be used in a network - up to 10 Roger Pens or Roger Clip on Mics can be used together
- Supplied with a docking station which will work as a charger and also to listen to the TV.
The Roger Pen is a flexible, intelligent product. It detects which situation you are in and adapts its microphone settings automatically to provide you the best speech understanding possible.
There are 3 different automatic microphone options:
Conference style - Place Roger Pen in the middle of a table to listen to a
group of people. The Pen will automatically detect that it is lying down and will set the microphones to an omnidirectional setting. Additionally, a carefully positioned weight will ensure that the microphones are always facing upwards.
Interview style - Hold Roger Pen in your hand and point it towards the person you want to hear. The Pen microphones will zoom in on the person speaking.
Around the neck - Use the lanyard (neckloop) to hang Roger Pen around the
neck of the speaker you want to hear. The Pen will detect that it is being used vertically and will go into directional microphone mode.
The Pen will also automatically adjust the gain of the receiver when the environmental noise increases. It is possible to manually override the automatic microphone settings if preferred. A special surface treatment reduces the noise caused by rubbing against other surfaces, such as clothing, to an absolute minimum.
The Roger Pen also allows you to connect to Bluetooth-enabled mobile phones and smartphones to make and receive phone calls. The microphone in the Pen will transmit your voice and you can answer or hang up a call using the buttons on the side. When paired with your phone, you will also hear incoming calls ring in your hearing aids.
The Roger Pen docking station is used to both recharge the microphone and transmit audio from a TV or other audio device (such as your TV, tablet or HiFi) to the Roger Pen (and into your hearing aids). Alternatively, you can use the short micro-USB audio cable to connect your multimedia device directly to your Roger Pen.
Connecting a Roger Pen to a Roger receiver is really easy - simply make sure they are all charged up, turned on and within 10cm of each other and then push the Connect button on the Roger Pen. The indicator light will go green and you're ready to go!

Roger Pen can support (connect to) two phones at the same time, but only one call at a time is possible.
One of, if not the most difficult situations for listeners with hearing loss is a conversation with multiple partners in high levels of noise, such as in noisy restaurants and parties. In these demanding situations the Roger Pen and the Roger Clip-On Mic can be combined to form a wireless network of multiple microphones – providing the Roger listener with improved access to the speech
of the friends or family around them.
In this case each conversation partner wears their own wireless microphone, with one ‘master’ microphone in the network controlling which microphone is open at any one time. (Only one microphone can be active at any one time, all other microphones are muted.) Switching between microphones occurs quickly and automatically on a first-come, first-served basis. In other words, voice activity steers this switching.
Why only enable one microphone at a time? Typically a person cannot listen to two audio streams at the same time. And on average the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is at best 0 dB if multiple audio (voice) streams are audible, which is not a high enough SNR for listeners with hearing loss. Therefore it does not make sense to have more than one microphone active at the same time. Additional Roger Pens or Clip-On Mics can be added at any time. It is also possible to build mixed networks with one or more Roger Pens and one or more Roger Clip-On Mics within the network.
