Phonak Extends Range of In-Ear Monitoring System

Phonak has increased the range of the Roger Earpiece launched in 2016.

Phonak said beginning in August, 2017 it will be possible to have full coverage wherever the user is, including across multiple rooms, such as from green room to main stage.

The Roger technology operates on the license-free 2.4 GHz band. The system includes the tiny, virtually invisible Roger Earpiece hidden in the listener’s ear and different types of transmitter-repeater.

Roger systems are ideal for people working in broadcasting, who rely on communication with directors, producers and sound technicians. They are discreet, easy to install and offer unrivaled intelligibility.

With the new upgrade, the Roger Earpiece will have unlimited range extension, improved sound, unnoticeable handover and one-day battery life.
