transferring high quality audio files into iPhone

post #1 of 6

Hi,

 

As far as I know, using iTunes means converting the musics by default to AAC,


So what is the best way to transfer high quality MP3 320 kbps and FLAC files into iPhone ?

 

thanks in advance !

iTunes supports MP3 and ALAC so you can use your MP3 files but you'll need to find a program and convert FLAC to ALAC. As for iTunes automatically converting files, you can stop this by switching that setting off when you plug in your iPhone. Just go to the sync page and there will be some options at the bottom of the page. Uncheck the box that says "convert higher bitrate files to___"

You can also buy a app called "Flac Player" at the App Store. You'll have to transfer the files manually and you'll loose the iTunes interface...but you won't have to covert the FLAC files.

There are free apps that play flac, 8player lite and Aceplayer for example. The trick is getting the files into your phone, I don't know how to do that. I can stream from a DLNA server (on a laptop)  to my phone in high-res Flac though.

Ah..

 

so by unchecking this option, any MP3 320 KBps is transferred as is not downsampled ?
