Improved Speech Recognition

A study by Dr. Jace Wolfe of Hearts for Hearing in Oklahoma found that a Roger Dynamic SoundField system with a single loudspeaker unit resulted in significantly better speech recognition at higher noise levels than a fixed-gain sound field system with four loudspeakers placed strategically in a classroom. Dynamic SoundField is not a fixed-gain system but adjusts its volume setting automatically depending on the classroom noise level. Furthermore, the patching of a fixed-gain sound field system with the microphone unit of an adaptive (Dynamic or Roger) personal ear-level receiver system created a significant drop in performance and should therefore be avoided.
