Phase-aware signal processing has received increasing interest in many speech applications. The success of phase-aware processing depends strongly on the robustness of the clean spectral phase estimates to be obtained from a noisy observation. In this paper, we propose a novel harmonic phase estimator relying on the phase invariance property exploiting relations between harmonics using the phase structure. We present speech quality results achieved in speech enhancement to justify the effectiveness of the proposed phase estimator compared to noisy phase and other phase estimation benchmarks.
