ITU-R BS.1387 states a method for objective assessment of perceived audio quality. This Recommendation, known also as PEAQ (Perceptual Evaluation of Audio Quality) is based on a psychoacoustic model of the human ear and was standardized by the International Telecommunications Union as an alternative to subjective tests, which are expensive and time-consuming processes. PEAQ combines various physiological and psycho-acoustical properties of the human ear to give a measure of the quality…

A Perceptual Audio Quality Measure Based on a Psychoacoustic Sound Representation
A general method for predicting the subjectivity quality of speech codecs has been developed. This method uses the concept of an internal sound representation. A model of the human auditory system is

TLDR
A filter bank based perceptual model is presented, which yields better temporal resolution than FFT-based approaches and thus allows a more precise modelling of preand post-masking and a refined analysis of the envelopes within each filter channel.
