FM Technology: Teenagers Views

Noise, distance and reverberation (echo) cause problems in listening situations for teenagers with hearing loss. FM systems are one way to help. What do teenagers think about using them?

The study interviewed 20 teenagers, between 11-17 years old, using a mixture of hearing aids and cochlear implants about their views on FM systems.

This was followed up with a field study using the Phonak Roger transmitter in outdoor situations where the views of teenagers, teachers of the deaf, activity instructors and teaching assistants were captured.

The downloadable booklet below tells us about their views and experiences.
