We propose an impact and high-pitch noise-suppression method based on spectral entropy. Spectral entropy takes a large value for flat spectral amplitude and a small value for spectra with several lines. We model the impact noise as a flat spectral signal and its damped oscillation as a high-pitch periodic signal consisting of spectra with several lines. We discriminate between the current noise situations by using spectral entropy and adaptively change the noise-suppression parameters used in a zero phase-based impact-noise-suppression method. Simulation results show that the proposed method can improve the perceptual evaluation of the speech quality and speech-recognition rate compared to conventional methods.
