What is the best audio quality for my iPhone or iPod?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've been trying to read up on what the best audio quality is for my iDevices. It looks like AAC Audio is the best in terms of keeping original CD quality, while maintaining an efficent size  on the hard drives. Is 192kbps AAC much better than 128kbps AAC? how about mp3 Kbps Quality vs AAC? 

 

Any advice would be appreciated :)

ALAC > all lossy formats

192kbps AAC > 128kbps AAC

AAC x kbps > MP3 x kbps

If you're going to do AAC, just do the maximum 320 kbps. It is stilll lossy, like MP3, but it is the best quality lossy. Personally, I only use lossy for portable audio.

192kbps VBR should be enough for casual listening, if space is a constraint,
