DeafEquipment - Solutions to improve the quality of life
The Phonak Radio Aid product range opens up a whole new world of hearing. Phonak, well known for their hearing aids, have used their microelectronics resources to develop the unique Roger digital wireless technology and highly miniaturised radio aid systems.
The Phonak miniature ear level receivers are ideally suited for teenagers and mature hearing aid users and offers a very cosmetically discreet system - the radio receiver simply plugs directly into a direct input shoe which in turn connects to the hearing aid or Baha.
Together with a transmitter Phonak radio aids offer a system with an exceptionally cosmetic receiver and a smart transmitter with variable microphone pick-up characteristics. The look of the micro receivers makes the system immediately attractive, however it is not suited to all users due to functional limitations and the potential ease of losing the receiver.
How can a Radio Aid System help?
In crowded situations or when a voice source is more than arms length away, hearing aid users can find background noise levels as loud as the voice they want to hear. A radio aid system greatly improves the clarity of sound by allowing a human voice or another desired sound source, to be fed electronically into the listening device, reducing background noise and sound loss between speaker and listener.
