David has worked at Phonak for over 10 years. An interest in music and helping people made Audiology a natural career choice, and David graduated from the Master of Audiology course at University of Auckland, New Zealand in 1999. He worked clinically for 10 years, in both public and private settings, and in both NZ and overseas. David has a special interest in advanced hearing instrument and wireless communication technology, the selection of these based on client and family needs and supporting verification and evaluation of these features in the clinical setting.

Phonak Roger™ – Soundwaves to the ear!

What do the New Zealand sailing team and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra have in common? They both use Roger™ technology to deliver on accessibility and expand possibilities for those with and without hearing loss.

As a musician and an audiologist, I have learned that sometimes less is more. Measurement on an ear model shows that deeper fitting molds can increase average hearing aid output at the eardrum by up to 8 dB!
