Auditory assessment of sound quality plays an important role in our work, social life, and recreation and is of professional interest to audio professionals, acousticians, audiologists, musicians, and psychologists. Although the concept of sound quality is widely used, the term itself is not clear and does not have a precise meaning. Such situation causes various conceptual and practical problems. In addition, despite a large number of terms describing sound character these terms do not form a system of well-defined and clearly linked perceptual parameters. Such a system and severe related definitions are discussed here.
