To me - they sound exactly the same. I don't have any tracks running at 384 kHz and doubt anyone else does either. The pre-occupation with bigger numbers, and the thought they sound better is simply human fallibility and placebo at its finest Just like the idea that high gain sounds better than low gain. Same signal. All high gain does is raise the volume on everything - including the noise floor. If its not actually needed - high gain is the worst thing you can engage. But people think it sounds better because it is louder.
We humans are a funny bunch.
Personally I'd rather leave the noise floor where it is.
Welp, I need louder, on low gain I hit the maximum volume way too often
Guess that if you're using most IEMs though, you won't really need this kind of volume.,..
