Phonak Slim, with its sleek and stylish design, aims to embrace those who have been reluctant to use hearing aids because of how they look, or how they make them feel. In fact, Phonak reports 60% of people say Phonak Slim would make them feel more confident wearing hearing aids, and more than half of people reported that Phonak Slim would improve the overall appeal of wearing hearing aids.6

By making it available on our latest Lumity platform, we’re also ensuring that Slim wearers have access to our most advanced technology, to hear better in noise, in challenging situations1-4 and over distance in quiet situations."5

New Roger On can be used as a headset for online calls

Roger is an intelligent wireless technology that transmits speech directly to hearing aids or cochlear implants, helping to overcome distance and noise. New Roger On builds on the original, award-winning Roger On remote microphone with new features. With the new Headset Mode, Roger On replaces the function of a computer’s microphone. This way, Roger On can now be used as a headset for online calls, allowing two-way voice streaming when connected to a computer via USB cable.
