16-bit/44.1 is fine for music CDs and most FLAC audio files.

Specialty places like HDtracks sells music higher then 16-bit/44.1

(My new Pink Floyd Blu-ray comes with music audio files in 24-bit/96K)

I believe modern DVD audio is 24-bit/48K max.

Modern Blu-ray audio I believe takes advantage above 24-Bit/48K (like 24/96 or 24/192).

 

What headphones you use really does not have factor in what you set the digital audio setting for.
