Couple questions regarding the use/operation of roger select remote microphone.
In a noisy setting, restaurant, music in background, etc. how effective (or how much of an improvement) does the RSRM offer a HA user? Versus the HA users just setting their HA’s on “background noise mode”. Are we talking a major improvement or a minor improvement?
If the RSRM is put in the center of a table of six, eight, ten people will it work if surrounded by the drinking glasses, pitchers of water/beer, wine bottle, flower arrangement, candle, salt/pepper shaker, etc.? When you use the Roger Pen you point towards the person you are talking to, but you can’t point the RSRM so if an object is blocking RSRM - will HA connection be impacted?
Is the RSRM really just for use communicating with someone sitting next to you or possibly across the table, versus someone sitting a couple chairs over? I see Phonak showing the RSRM pictures of device placed relatively close to the HA user - which tells me the device might only work within a certain small radius.
Is the RSRM water proof should someone knock over a glass of water/beer/wine on top of it?
Lastly when buying new HA’s - Phonak can you negotiate the price (down) for the RSRM or do you have to pay asking price. I’m not a fan buying HA accessories on ebay since that’s always a “crap shoot” and you really never know if you are getting something totally new. On the other hand I don’t need to spend $700 on a device that only works in certain settings or become impractical with table setting blockage, etc.
