In digital audio perceptual coding is a coding method used to reduce the amount of data needed to produce high-quality sound. Perceptual coding takes advantage of the human ear, screening out a certain amount of sound that is perceived as noise. In perceptual coding you reduce or eliminate the sounds that the ear would perceive as noise.
