I guess that kids have to learn that good audio has to be earned.

Or maybe it's just aliasing from really low bitrates? i.e. listen to a 128 kbps file and it sounds "pixelated" to me. It sounds so bad that you can't recognise most of the music.

No it's most probably from clipping of turning up the bass knob too high.

"Farting?" No, it's distortion from the speaker drivers because they are being driven beyond their physical capabilities. And 128 kbps shouldn't sound bad at all - depending on the type of music, the audible difference is subtle at best. Maybe something was wrong with the file. Have you tried the http://mp3ornot.com/ test?

Right. I just listed an arbitrary low bitrate that audiophools would frown upon.

I feel sad as well frown.gif about that. When they dismiss all the students and the parents, they finally turned off the speaker and their PSY Oppa Gangnam Style. I felt relief! I can finally hear the beach's natural sound xD even my friends and teachers find it annoying!

107? :confused:

 

A year or so ago I downloaded a song that was very difficult to find, and I was wondering why it sounded so horrible. I recently checked the bitrate and it was 64 kbps lol

Yep it makes me sad when I look at my families itunes library and see that most of it is 128kbps and that they PAID for that low quality.

Something that I questioned myself a lot sometimes! Why some online store sells music at 128kbps for $0.99/song I did rather get pirated download if that's the case... Have ever seen FLAC download for free...

Yeah the iTunes default used to be 128 kbps. It's been upgraded to 256 though.

Cheap HP's and cheap MP3 players + audio ignorance = majority of music buyers.

I have tried convincing by friends to go for ALAC/FLAC instead of MP3 since they are paying for it anyway but the downloading here is a pain to them [<200kb/s] and it takes too much memory to them... 

 

as for mp3 player, they all do have decent dap. I have a friend who uses her Sansa when she's out and about... One with Note 1...
