I'm sorry if this has been asked several times already (It seems like the kind of question that would..), but I've spent a lot of time in the headphones/IEM section of this site. I have finally found headphones I like, but I've made the rookie mistake of still listening to songs that are 190kps. I usually don't buy CDs, since I hate buying an entire album for one or two songs, so what are some good ways to get ahold of good quality music.
I've heard that iTunes and Amazon offer music at 256 kbps, and that 256 and 320 take a trained ear to notice a difference. Is this true?
How are songs from Amazon and iTunes? Should I stick to them or invest in programs like Spotify and pay for the premium membership (which I think lets me listen to 320kbps songs)?
Are there programs that are even better than what I've mentioned?
I'm listening to music unamped from my iPod/iPhone through IEMs (mostly), if it matters.
Thanks so much for reading
