Hi, I'm somone that pretty much knows nothing about audio, but I have some questions.
I have cheap in ear headphones, sennheiser CX-300 II.(or these random cheap speakers a friend gave me on my birthday, I'm not even sure what they are but they were like 15 bucks and they sound worse). Sometimes I listen on my PC, sometimes on my android phone.
I wonder, what kind of equipment would I need to easily tell the difference between 320 kbps and lossless or uncompressed Like, how much money would you need to spend?
I have a lot of files lower than 320 kbps that sound fine to me, but maybe it's because I don't even really know what good quality is supposed to sound like since I have so little 320kbps files and never even tried a lossless file since it's so big.
I should probably be able to tell the difference my ears are pretty good. the difference between uncompressed/losless avi video and a compressed h264 .mp4 video is extreme, so there must be a big difference in audio aswell right?
What exactly is treble?I noticed it on my phone's poweramp, in my opinion it sounds better all the way up on punk songs. Turning up the bass sounds really annoying tough, I'm not sure why people are so obsessed over loud bass, it sounds annoying. When I look up what people think of certian headphones, the first thing I always read is ''the bass is so good'' , I really don't get that.
lastly, how does an equalizer in music software/apps work exactly? I always leave it alone, I'm not sure what to do with it.
