Audiophiles?
« on: October 25, 2017, 07:44:09 PM »
Are any audiophiles here? I'd say I'm a learning g audiophile. I've always had that "ear" for sound and it's only grown with age. I'm able to tell distinct differences in sounds and frequencies and some day, when I have the money >.>, I want to have a huge audio setup to learn and play with to get the best sound.

Anyone else here kinda like that? :O

if an audiophile is someone who only collects their music in Flac to ensure the highest quality then I guess I'm guilty. I guess I don't really care as long as an MP3 doesn't sound like It went through the washer after I port it to my phone, so that's why I collect the Flac files and convert them so I can guarantee the highest quality  :)

Hold up. Transferring MP3s to other devices lowers quality? If that's true, that explains why the music I dragged to various devices throughout the years started to sound like crap. I thought I improperly ripped them from the CDs as a kid and didn't realize until I got better headphones (/ taste).

Over time I've become more concerned with sound quality. Not to an audiophile degree, I don't think. I don't obsess over it or anything. And to an audiophile my headset is probably a cheap piece of crap. It does the job fine, in my opinion, though I'd like to get a better set if I had the money and other priorities straightened out.

Geoff began heading to the apartments, but his mind was full. Like he could complain about the (figurative) demons that haunt him when there are people still trying to deal with much worse. In truth, all of his own life problems were caused by his paranoid self. [...] While some people are born in pain, without any say and no chance of escape. He wanted to kill everyone's demons off. Maybe then his would finally wither, too.

That's not true. MP3 can be perfectly fine and the only thing that will degrade it is actively re-encoding it; The same way just opening and looking at a jpg won't degrade it (common misconception), it's every time you modify and save it that degrades it.

Most likely it's just low-quality MP3 files from the start and you only gradually started noticing it over time.

That said, it's possible with Apple-devices (iphone, ipod) that it might degrade a little over time since these sometimes like to convert your music to Apple-friendly formats like AAC.

That doesn't sound too fun! Good luck with healing from your surgery though, i'm sure the music will help you through it! :)

Dang, i usually don't get too much trouble with external drives! I'm currently labouring over the mix of some self-produced music and i'm starting to lose focus.
