    meh, although its not really about headphones, it is about audio which makes this semi related

    i know that lossy stuff is bad, MP3, ACC and stuff but at like 1441kbps encoding, its like awesome

    Aiff and Wav are lossless but the files are huge, flac is lossless yet only 2/3 the size of aiffs however they arent very compatible with itunes

    That's what I use.. Apple Lossless Audio Codec

    320kbps is still very decent

    thats what i thought at first but... i wanted album art so i went with Apple Lossless

    and i think 800kbps-1000kbps is smaller than 1050kbps
