Re: Does anyone know of a Clip-On Mic that can be "networked"? #FAQ


 

Carolyn,

If each of you had a Roger pen I don’t know how that worked. You would have had to each wear a pen connected to every other person. How many people were there? Many pens can go to one person’s hearing aids, but a single pen can't go to many hearing aids. 

Yes. There is a wonderful clip-on mic, tiny, very effective, clips on easily and securely. It is a Phonak mic, but not a Roger. It works on bluetooth; the Roger mics are FM. I keep it in my pocket all the time. It’s called the Partner mic and costs considerably less than the Roger mics. I find it useful when I’m with only one other person. Walking is great because since that’s outside and you generally aren’t looking at the other person, it’s a game changer. Any time there is a single speaker, like a lecturer or a tour guide, it is simple to use. But it needs bluetooth to work, so it’s limited to the Marvel, Paradise, or Lumity.

My only excellent restaurant experience was using the Roger Pen, which Steve Sells networked.  Each one of us had our Roger Pen hanging around our neck, while we ate lunch. And we could hear each other loud and clear -- even though there was tremendous background noise going on.

I am wondering if you know of a clip-on mic that could do the same thing. I only know of 1 to 1 clip-on mics. That means you can communicate with just 1 person at a time. Does anyone make a clip-on mic that can be networked?
