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.

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:
Roger Pen Features:
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
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!

Bluetooth operating time: 5 hours active / 2 days standby
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.

I have recently acquired a Roger pen for use at work, this was primarily to help alleviate the problems I was having hearing telephone calls in a very busy office environment. The telephone had become my enemy and I was becoming terrified to use it for fear that I would not hear the caller, miss important information and generally be extremely embarrassed in front of my colleagues, especially as this was a new job. I also require this to help in meetings and training sessions etc.
I have become deafened over the years and experience tinnitus as well as a decreased ability to hear, I have been wearing 2 x hearing aids for over 20 years which have improved with new digital technology, I wear my hearing aids for approximately 11 hours a day and totally rely on them.
I must thank Connevans and leave this review for future customers as the Roger pen has revolutionised my life, I no longer fear the telephone as I can hear the caller directly through both hearing aids, this took some getting used to and I did have a few initial teething problems with echo and pairing but this has now been sorted out with a bit of perseverance of reading the instruction booklet and becoming familiar with the pen. I did have a lady who came to train me to use the device and this was very useful however, it was a lot of information to take in during one session so a bit of patience and fiddling around was required on my part.
I must say WOW ITS MAGIC!!! I LOVE IT, I could almost cry with how much it has helped.
Thank you Connevans in particular Laura Evans Beynon who has been an invaluable help.
Thank you all so much
