Lisn-s The new benchmark in speech-in-noise testing

LiSN-S PGA is the new benchmark speech-in-noise test for patients with an existing hearing loss. This unique diagnostic tool allows clinicians to accurately measure how well patients understand speech in noise, before recommending the hearing technology that best fits their needs.

Speech in noise testing in the hearing aid choice phaseLiSN-S PGA is an adaptive test that is administered with specially configured headphones where stimuli are spatially separated in a virtual 3D world that intelligently mimics the real world. The test is scientifically robust and takes just 5 minutes to run. After using LiSN-S PGA to assess the speech in noise performance of a patient with an existing hearing loss, the software provides tailored technology recommendations in order that you the patient can understand what hearing technology will best meet your needs.

LiSN-S PGA suits all English-speaking patients aged 6 and above. The tool was developed by Dr Sharon Cameron and Dr Harvey Dillon of National Acoustic Laboratories of Australia (NAL) and is distributed by Phonak, one of our hearing aid partners.

LiSN-S PGA (Listening in Spatialized Noise test Sentences with Prescribed Gain Amplifier) is a new speech understanding in noise test and the first to offer hearing care professionals reliable objective evidence of why a patient needs advanced directional microphones in their hearing instruments or an FM system. 

Unlike other tests on the market, target sentences and surrounding speech arrive from different directions, just like in the real world.

  •  Quick and easy to administer (5-minutes per test)
  •  Suitable for all ages (6 years and above)
  •  Amplifies stimuli according to pure tone audiogram
  •  Provides clear outcomes and recommendations –
  •  easy to understand for professional and patient

LiSN-S PGA is based on solid evidence and will enhance any recommendation we make and your experience with hearing aids
