      Stay sociable this Christmas with the Roger Select

      Christmas and new year is a time for getting together with friends and family. However, it can be an anxious, or even lonely, time for people with hearing loss if you struggle to join in the conversation. Make sure you, or someone you love, feel included this festive season with a Roger Select wireless microphone.

      The festive period now lasts much longer than the twelve days of Christmas. The build up to the big day is getting earlier and earlier, with celebrations lasting well into the new year. For people who are deaf or have hearing loss, it can be a stressful time. The number of social situations to cope with throughout December and into January can be a real listening challenge, especially when there’s background noise.

      Whether it’s the office party, family get togethers, visiting friends and neighbours, chatting over Christmas dinner, watching festive TV or celebrating on New Year’s Eve, every occasion involves keeping up with the conversation. This can be exhausting, frustrating and isolating for anyone who is struggling to hear. However, there is a solution…

      The Roger Select wireless microphone is a simple way to put the joy into Christmas gatherings. Designed to help boost your hearing, it’s ideal for social situations where there’s background noise. Watch the video to see it in action, then read on for full details.

      Stay at the heart of the conversation

      Placed on a table the Roger Select automatically detects who’s talking, even over background noise. It switches seamlessly from one person to another as the conversation progresses. When several conversations are taking place, you can choose who you want to talk to with a single touch. With six microphones and a 360° listening radius, you have a greater chance of hearing more than with hearing aids alone.

      It’s hearing aid-compatible

      Use the Roger Select with your hearing aids, and you’re back in the conversation, wherever the voices are coming from.

      Wear it out and about

      You can discreetly clip the Roger Select to clothing, or wear it around your neck, to ensure you never miss a word of one-to-one conversations.

      Watch TV more easily

      Enjoy listening to the TV or multimedia devices, such as music players and computers, by placing the Roger Select next to the sound source.

      Make wireless phone calls

      Thanks to its wideband Bluetooth technology, you can make wireless mobile calls and easily follow the conversation.

      Choice of colours

      This stylish device is available in a choice of three colours: champagne, earl white and graphite grey.
