    Why 24 bit audio and anything over 48k is not only worthless, but bad for music.

    Please make an effort to understand, instead of accusing somebody with flat dismissal or wave of hand or whatnot.Or maybe I'm not understanding your rhetoric, as there is a miscommunication.   iem's matter, because of the passive noise reduction, which helps in concentrating on the tracks...

    Why 24 bit audio and anything over 48k is not only worthless, but bad for music.

    I have tried and haven't found any difference between 16/44 cd and 16/44 from 24/96.   But i have a question.. is the effect of different downsampling algorithms used noticeable to a discerning ear..because of dithering?

    Fidue A73 - Hybrid (1DD + 1BA) IEM - Impressions and discussion thread

      Thanks Angelofmercy! Maybe what you re searching for is the endgame, just like me! Can you describe the imaging/soundstage of E80 is in comparison  to A73? Assuming E80 is the one you like the most in the bunch of iems you have mentioned! What genre of music do you listen to the most?

    How well You hear audio Quality?

    I do constant A/Bing with 256 kbps aac,320 kbps mp3, 16 bit and 24 bit flac audio.Truth be told A/Bing with 16 bit flac and 24 bit flac audio is a little difficult.Otherwise, with rest of them one can easily make out.You can make out that latest mp3 codec standard is heavily v shaped as the...

    Best IEM tips?

    The monster tri flanges(for bass) and Me elec biflanges(for balanced sound) are my favs.I do have a good history with comply t 400 tips in fit and isolation.But with the durability being an issue, i don' use those tips regularly.

      This is not my first review, but it is the first time posting on Head fi. About my preferences: Qualities I look for in an IEM: Clean detailed treble, good sub bass, forward mids, isolation. Overall tonality leaning towards warmth, but balanced and musical. I am neither a bass head nor do I...

    Why 24 bit audio and anything over 48k is not only worthless, but bad for music.

    I dont want stir the hornet's nest, but can't resist the action.. despite all the arguments against High res audio, at the end of the day only A/B ing the recordings matters.Listen to Take five(Dave Bruebeck) in 24/96 and 16 bit flac. The noise floor is drastically less and the dynamic range...
