Roger Select is a microphone that picks up the voice of a speaker and sends it wirelessly directly into your ears. You can place Roger Select in the middle of a table e.g. in a restaurant, or it can be worn by a single person i.e. to hear a distant talker. Your friends and family can simply clip Roger Select on to their clothing or hang it around their neck, so you can clearly enjoy all precious moments.
When placed in the center of a table, the Roger Select automatically selects the person who is talking and seamlessly switches from one talker to another. When multiple conversations take place, you can manually select whom to listen to. When a talker speaks, your Roger Select will focus its microphone to the talker and reduce the background noise. If two or more people are speaking at the same time, you may tap a segment to focus on a specific person. You can add other people by tapping additional segments. Tapping an activated segment again will deactivate the selected direction. To hear the whole group again, you simply tap the center touch key.
Phonak Roger Select features wideband Bluetooth® for phone calls and it can stream sound from TVs, music players, computers and more. Be in control, decide whom to listen to In situations where multiple conversations are taking place, with a single manual touch, select the person you want to hear and the conversation to focus on.
MultiBeam Technology is an innovative Roger microphone feature from Phonak.
