I just got a pretty nice midrange pair of noise cancelling headphones. Anyone know of anywhere where I can stream or download some high quality audio samples to test them out?

Too compressed. I'm looking for a "lossless" type audio sample.

look up "the bunny boy" on youtube. watch it in hi def. the audio in the intro is pretty intense if I remeber correctly. It should definately test out your bass,
no sir away a papaya war is on

you could try a FLAC file. theyre lossless.

I have no opinion on this matter.

FLAC!!!

Yes!!!

what you're looking for is .flac and .alac, both of which are far more compressed and run at lower bit rates than a cd fyi,
a cd is the closest to uncompressed you will get andmost loseless if not all of it you will find is ripped from cd's

MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, more commonly referred to as MP3, is a patented digital audio encoding format using a form of lossy data compression.


Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format for lossless audio data compression. During compression, FLAC does not lose quality from the audio stream, as lossy compression formats such as MP3, AAC, and Vorbis do.

.Peavey Classic 30
.Xotic BB Preamp
.MXR Carbon Copy Analog Delay
.Vox V847A Wah
.Boss RC-2 Loop Station
.Washburn WI-24 (first guitar )

NOOOOO!

CDs are lossless and so is FLAC! (although compressed, it's still lossless and does not run at a lower bitrate). Where do you guys think high-quality audio comes from? Straight from the musicians on a piece of diamond?

High-quality audio is huge (i.e. >30mb for a song).

Put in a CD. Actually, vinyl. They're waaaay cooler.

Ofcourse it's compressed. That's what mastering does. Most modern CDs are compressed/limited to 0db.

They aren't talking about the audio effect "compression" they're talking about sampling an analogue signal and quantising it into a discretised digital signal, thereby compressing it to fill up less space on a storage device. Some methods sound better than others... but at the end of the day it all comes down to the resolution and sampling rate, because the faster it is, the higher the frequencies that can be passed through without causing noticable aliasing. So listening to music stored in an analogue format such as a vinyl disc will always get you better sound quality than a file that has been discretised.

CD audio is uncompressed in data/sample rate or bit depth. It (and any mp3 of a recent band) will have been likely mastered to be loud with a limiter (a form of dynamic compression), but many will still not be that extremely done and will still sound good. Try something like Blood Sugar Sex Magik by the Chilli Peppers, or something older like Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, David Bowie, or something else.

Otherwise, if you have a BluRay player, try listening to something on that (if you have any concert DVDs or something).

Exactly. CD = "lossless" format.
