Am I the only one who is just listening to Spotify? I honestly can’t see how spotify’s sound ”sucks”. Maybe I just haven’t heard sound the way you guys have.

It's hard to tell what "better" is without listening to better. So it comes down to what you said being that you haven't heard it before so you can't imagine how it can be better.

If you took even the lowest end of the spectrum "HiFi" being CD quality audio vs Spotify you should definitely be able to tell a massive difference even on your phone speakers.If you can't hear the difference then all good don't worry about it. Everyone hears differently due to just the nature of humans and no need to worry about it. But many people can and that's also okay too.

Problem is you would have to listen on your computer spotify, pause and play back that same portion of the song with a FLAC(or any other uncompressed format) that has a known CD level quality to it, to be able to hear the difference if you can at all that is.

There's a difference clearly between 16bit and 24bit. That's the point I made, higher quality sound. Thanks for introducing nothing but irrelevant information to the conversation. If that bothers you then so be it
Haha, I suppose you didn't choose that nickname by accident.

Ironic you'd mention that considering you proceeded to insert your opinion yet another time after I made it clear about what I know I'm capable of hearing, as if you know me better than I know myself. Kinda like you couldn't just let me comment on a web article and leave it at that. Had to get a word in.

I minded my own and you didn't like it, again not my problem I said nothing wrong to start an irrelevant conversation about your opinion.

That's the end of it now. Stay on topic and dm me if you so desire

In fairness, this contention has been going on for years, and I don't think I've ever seen it categorically resolved. You still have two sides of the fence adamant they're right. The reality is, I think both sides are right. Even if one is right and the other isn't, it doesn't matter; it harms no one, as far as I can tell.

Humans are notoriously bad measurement instruments. Your experience of the world can be influenced by the information already in your brain.

Exactly. But that doesn't mean your interpretation should be discounted as impossible by others. The placebo effect is a real thing. The human body is far more complicated than assigning a set of strict numbers and leaving it at that.

I guess it comes down to, are you trying to find out an empirical truth, something that applies to our material existence and therefore is potentially repeatable for other people (A key basis of the Scientific Method - Empiricism - "that all hypotheses and theories must be tested against observations of the natural world rather than resting solely on a priori reasoning, intuition, or revelation")

Or are you trying to document your personal perceptions, like a dream book or trip report, psychological placebos and all included? This use case is not invalid or wrong, it's just not usually as useful to other people, but can be interesting

But its an online forum so no big deal
