Apple Offers New Audio Bitrates In iTunes 10.6

Apple Offers New Audio Bitrates In iTunes 10.6 | Improved Audio Quality | Scoop.it
Apple has released iTunes 10.6 and with it, users now have the ability to select higher quality audio conversion bitrates when syncing to an iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. Before this, users were restricted to using 128kbps, according to Apple Insider.

Brittany Kallash's insight:

I think it is good that iTunes is giving the consumer an option and isn't requiring them to purchase the higher costing songs.

John Bolland's curator insight, May 13, 2013 11:59 AM

I feel it's technology like this that the industry believes will help boost sales.  What has hurt the industry through digital advancement can also promote it.

Tanner Samp's curator insight, January 19, 2014 7:59 PM

iTunes is currently offering an update that allows users with digital music files to down convert from the traditional 256 or 320 kbps. I see how this may allow users to fit a higher quanity of music onto their devices, but it sacrifices quality. This is another example of technology supporting the "quantity over quality" mentality. Though this is convenient, I don't belive this is a push in the right direction for quality music. Overall, this is not the solution the music industry needs to sell more music.

Apple in talks to improve sound quality of music downloads

Apple in talks to improve sound quality of music downloads | Improved Audio Quality | Scoop.it
Apple and other digital music retailers are in discussions with record labels to improve the quality of the song files they sell, executives involved in the talks say.
Brittany Kallash's insight:

Apple, among other retailers, are looking into upgrading the song file quality that audiences will be listening to.  This upgrade will come with a cost however, by charging consumers a higher price for songs. Many distributers are already using 24-bit and devices are being developed to support this audio sound.  I think it's positive to improve the sound quality but I think the higher price that will be charged will lend to more piracy occuring. Audio upgrades are improving in many different technologies we use everyday, but the cost to use these is becoming greater and greater and I think that eventually only a small percentage of individuals will be able to afford it.

Bose SoundDock with Lightning support coming later this month

Bose SoundDock with Lightning support coming later this month | Improved Audio Quality | Scoop.it
Not everyone is a fan of Bose audio products. They are typically more expensive and have fewer features than their counterparts, but still, they manage to sell a ton of them. And the SoundDock is the perfect example of that.

Brittany Kallash's insight:

I personally love Bose audio.  I have the Bose speakers in my car and I love the sound.  I think that the price of their products may deter most consumers however.

Brittany Kallash's insight:

I personally don't think that these earbuds will sell well.  There are so many earbuds out there that are inexpensive and sound fine.  Ceramic earbuds don't sound like the most comfortable thing to me either.
