The generalized listener selection procedure (GLS) defines criteria for the efficient creation of a permanent listening panel. This paper describes the application of this procedure to a large group of candidate listeners (>300) from which a permanent panel of 30 listeners was to be formed. The criteria presented in the original publication are augmented to make the procedure more rapid and sensitive to acuity of specific auditory percepts. Verification of the benefits of such a procedure based on a comparison of listening test results for the final GLS panel and a panel of randomly chosen listeners is presented.
