Just launched – The Phonak Roger ON solution

Midland Hearing Care is a certified provider of Phonak Roger FM technology. Since the easing of Covid restrictions, we have been seeing more patients with difficulty hearing in background noise. 

Roger On is a hearing aid accessory microphone for indoor/outdoor use dedicated for all conversations that occur in background noise and over distance, at work, in lectures and during social activities. Compatible with ‘My Roger App’ for volume control and modification of listening programmes.

Phonak Roger On automatically compares and chooses the direction of incoming speech with the best signal-to-noise ratio, enhancing speech up to 54% in challenging listening environments. Thanks to the built-in accelerometer technology, Roger On recognizes the sound environment and its position,  switching automatically between Table mode, Presenter mode and Pointing mode.

Clinical news and technology updates

Midland Hearing Care is the first Starkey hearing aid technology provider for the Midlands. 

The Livio EDGE AI range of  hearing aids are fully rechargeable and have automated features compatible with the ‘Thrive smartphone app’ to enable ‘mask mode and further boost speech clarity using ‘Edge mode’ to help improve hearing even when others are wearing face masks. 

Edge Mode* for masks is an on-demand mode that uses AI – artificial intelligence to optimize speech audibility to offset communication challenges presented by face masks, social distancing and background noise. 

Another benefit of wearing rechargeable custom in ear hearing aid technology is that custom hearing aids are made to fit exactly in the ear canal and not behind the ears, therefore custom technology won’t get tangled or get pulled off when wearing or removing face masks and is compatible with the Thrive hearing health smartphone app.

Serenity Choice non-custom ‘off the shelf’ hearing protection ear plugs

The clinic provides a range of Serenity Choice™ hearing protection products available for purchase off the shelf.  Serenity Choice™ is the high-end non-custom hearing protection solution from Phonak. These earplugs cancel noise and loud sounds, lets the ear breathe and keeps relevant sound and speech.  

Serenity Choice uses high-end membrane and mesh filters, allowing one to experience natural hearing, situational awareness and communication while offering the hearing protection required.

With solutions for music, motorsports, hunting & shooting, work & sleep, Serenity Choice has options for all.

Did you know that ‘70% of people exposed to loud noise never or seldom wear hearing protection’. Noise induced hearing loss is the one type of hearing loss that can be prevented, if ears are protected with appropriate hearing protection. Please protect your hearing when working in any noise.
