CLIX is the first installment in a suite of rehabilitation applications that make up the Advanced Bionics Listening Exercises (able). This free program is for adults using hearing aids or cochlear implants who want to practice listening for word differences in both quiet and noise.

The ability to discriminate between vowels and consonants is a skill that improves with practice. This app is designed for both self-study or work with a friend or other party (referred to as your “Listening Coach”).

After you take the placement test, the app will suggest areas to visit where you can practice listening for words or words within phrases in a 45-level hierarchy. You can choose to add noise at any time to increase the difficulty.

CLIX is easy to navigate and is packed with useful features, including:

•A placement test you can take at any time which will lead you to recommended levels
•A 45-level hierarchy of word differences
•Over 2,300 recorded spoken words to test discrimination skills
•Options to practice alone or with a friend acting as a “Listening Coach”
•A placement test to establish recommended levels
•The option to add noise for challenging discrimination skills
•Randomized presentation to ensure words are presented differently
•Current scores to chart progress
•Options to listen for words alone, words at the end of a phrase, words within a phrase, or two words per phrase
•A CLIX dashboard showing scores, recommended new challenges based on performance, and allowing entry to each level from one place
•A choice of short, medium, or long practice sessions
•Up to 30 separate accounts for professionals using the app with multiple patients

Please note: This application is designed to work in landscape orientation only.

Needs iPhone support


I tried this app out on an iPad with my audiologist and its extremely helpful! However, I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t have an iPad most of the time.

If this can get iPhone support, this would be extremely helpful and I’ll be able to practice listening wherever I am!

Make it usable on an iPhone


I use this app on my iPad, I can see this working very well on an iPhone if the screen resolutions were fixed in the app.



App is unusable on the iPhone. Image is blown up and can only see top left corner, can't scroll to see anything else.
