It studies both. From basic perception (e.g. determining the
limits of what can be heard) to scene analysis which concerns
how those things that can be heared are used to reconstruct
a mental picture (e.g. detection of patterns).

Researchers in this field are not as stupid as to 'gloss over'
these factors. They are very well aware of them. If there is
any problem in this area it is with those who have heard some
bells ringing and think they understand it all.

While in general I do agree with the idea that you put forward
(because perception of music is not the same as perception of
sound), something doesn't have to be science to be studied by
science. Even religion can be a *subject* of science, while
clearly it is not science itself.
