This paper describes a double-ended quality assessment system for speech with a bandwidth of up to 14 kHz (so-called super-wideband speech). The quality assessment system is based on a combination of local and global features, where the local features are dependent on a time alignment procedure and the global features are not. The system is evaluated over a large set of subjectively scored narrowband, wideband and super-wideband speech databases. The system performs similarly to PESQ for narrowband speech and significantly better for wideband speech.
