Hi,

I don't know what you consider as "listening device", but the ear has
fantastic ability
to hear slightly differentiating sounds:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binaural_beats
On the basis of that, someone could "listen" time and detect even very
minor differences in sync,
far below the base frequency (ie. think of multiplying with a PLL the PPS
by a 440 factor).

cheers,
F.
