One of the biggest challenges that deaf and hard-of-hearing students face is hearing what’s going on in large seminars and busy classrooms.
Starting college or university can be stressful enough, but student life can be made easier with the use of Radio Aids. Radio Aids are the most popular type of equipment used by hearing-impaired students, and can significantly reduce background noise, allowing you to hear clearly over distance, which is ideal for lecture halls and classrooms.
At iHear, we offer a wide range of Radio Aid systems that include microphones that can be worn by lecturers, receivers to connect your hearing aid or cochlear implant. Some of the microphones have functions, for example the Phonak Roger On which can help when listening to audio and taking part in group work.
Phonak's Roger Select is a multifunctional wireless transmitting microphone that improves the listening experience for the hearing aid wearing user over distance and in noise. The Pen helps overcome the localised limitations of hearing aids. This device has Bluetooth, to connect and use for your mobile phone conversations, and an audio input to connect to your Laptop or PC, and transmit the sound to the Roger Receiver you have. The Roger Pen can be used in a variety of settings, including college and university.
The Roger Pen with Clip-on Mic and MyLink Receiver can be used if the lecturer wears the Clip-on Mic, which is paired with the Roger Pen, and the student wears the MyLink Receiver with their hearing aid in the T or Loop setting. It is also paired with the Roger Pen. This allows the student to not only listen to the teacher or lecturer who is wearing the Clip-on Mic, but also hear what other students are saying around them using the Roger Pen.
The Phonak Roger X (02) Receiver is a small, discrete ear level receiver that when connected to a Roger wireless microphone provides good speech and sound over distance, for example a large lecture hall, to a person with hearing loss. The type 02 receiver connects easily to any of the Roger Microphones including Table Mic, Roger Pen, and Clip-on Mic.
