Get digital audio at the highest quality possible
It’s pretty simple. You can have the greatest headphones in the world, but if your source (e.g. the music you’re listening to) is low quality, then all you get is the best version of bad audio.
These days, most music listening is done via streaming on our phones, and a lot of these files are highly compressed; sacrificing quality for space and bandwidth.
As a guide, try not to go for files with bitrates lower than 192kbps. And do give the paid subscriptions of services such as Tidal and Spotify a shot. Both offer much higher streaming quality than available free options online.
When you (and your audio equipment) are ready to take the next step, look for High Resolution Audio. You'll thank us.
