LEA is a unique tool able to perform the connection between physical characteristics of sounds and auditory perception. LEA can also be used as a recording and listening portable 3D studio to allow the 3D-reproduction of the original acoustical environment.

LEA is used for signal design by companies such as Airbus Industries, Volvo, Renault, VW, Mizuno, Nizzan and others.
