After my brother's MEElectronics M9P died while he was studying abroad in Singapore, I helped my bro find some new headphones by directing him to the Jaben store (supposedly one of the best audio stores in Singapore). I didn't recommend him anything in particular (just a list of trustworthy brands and some general advice on headphone selection), so I was very pleasantly surprised when my non-audiophile brother reported to me that he walked out of Jaben with the Shure SE215 Limited Edition.
But now that my brother has obtained some really good IEMs for the first time, I think the time has come to properly educate him on audio in full. He rips CDs on iTunes' default import settings (256 kbps AAC) and YouTube rips some of his other music, so I'm worried he's not getting the most out of his new IEMs. Are there any online articles that can easily explain the basics of audio like:
- How to take care of IEMs
- Audio file formats, bit rate, lossy vs. lossless, etc.
- Computer audio software beyond iTunes (especially important since he doesn't have any Apple devices anyway)
If I do this right, we might have another convert on our hands.
