The analysis of speech codecs using psychoacoustic measures

M. Raad, C. Ritz, I. Burnett, A. Mertins


This paper analyses two narrowband speech codecs, the 4.8 kbit/s FS1016 coder and the 8 kbit/s G729 coder, using objective psychoacoustic measures. Four measures are used: loudness, sharpness, roughness and tonality. The results show sharpness and roughness as the two major contributing factors to the subjective difference between the two coders.
