(54)Decoding apparatus and decoding method


(57) A decoding apparatus that decodes a first encoded data that is encoded into a first time range from a low-frequency component of an audio signal, and a second encoded data that is used when creating a high-frequency component of the audio signal from the low-frequency component and encoded into a second tirne range, into the audio signal. In the decoding apparatus a high-frequency component compensating unit (160) compensates the high-frequency component created from the second encoded data based on the first time range. A decoding unit that decodes into the audio signal by synthesizing the high-frequency component compensated by the high-frequency component compensating unit, and the low-frequency component decoded from the first encoded data.
