A: When you have a hearing device with a T-coil and want to get access to the Roger performance.

Q: What can I do to improve understanding using Roger NeckLoop?

Q: Is there any way to adjust the length of the neck loop cable? It’s far too long for me.

A: Besides using the shorter cable that is available, you can also try gathering up a section of the loop with a e.g., a hair tie. Do not make any knots or sharp kinks on the neck loop cable as it might damage it.

Q: Is there a risk of strangulation when wearing Roger NeckLoop?
