Perfect pitch is the ability to hear the slight difference of the "sound" of the tones.
Every note has it's own sound, you don't try to hear if the note is high or low you hear it's sound.
And to be able to hear such small differences in sound can be an advantage in mastering,
And music actually gets more beautiful and interesting to listen to.

Two good links on Perfect Pitch


Don't see the relevance in mastering.

On the topic of perfect pitch, I see it as more of a "gift" that someone is born with, or develops at an early age, not something that MEs need to focus on. That said, I've got good relative pitch, a skill I've retained for decades, it does have its uses at times.

I've got good relative pitch too, but perfect pitch open up your ears in a totally different way.
It's hard to explain, I think the only way is to try it for yourself. So don't judge it before you tried it.
The "gift" and "born with" thing is partly an old myth and misconception.
