The QuickSIN is a speech-in-noise test that quickly and easily measures the ability to hear in noise. Speech understanding in noise cannot be reliably predicted from the pure tone audiogram or other standard audiometric tests. The QuickSIN test should be used on all adult patients as part of the audiometric test battery.
-Quick and easy to administer and score
-Results can be used to make specific treatment recommendations (e.g., hearing aids, directional microphones, array microphones, FM systems)
-Useful for counseling patients regarding realistic expectations
-High face validity; patients report that QuickSIN lists sound just like the problem they have in the real world
