128kbps sounds terrible though.
it's the maximum the iPhone can play anyway. Anything extra and you're just wasting space
whats the maximum quality? And how do I convert to it on iTunes?
Wow nice. 6gb to 1.23 gb! Nice that'll save so much space.
So you're suggesting to downgrade the quality to save space because it wouldn't matter since iPhone can't output any higher? Fair enough.
Didn't realise iPhone can't output any higher than 128kbps, Always thought I could tell the difference between a higher quality and lower quality song =/
Question :- Will this convert the original files? or just the files in iTunes?
Well remember, that when you convert to the lower quality, it will sound the same on your iPhone/iPod touch, but it will sound like crap on iTunes, right? So I see a flaw in this plan.
From the Apple website:
Audio formats supported: AAC (8 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), HE-AAC, MP3 (8 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3, 4, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, and AAX+), Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV.
Up to 320Kbps is supported, 128Kbps sounds like crap.
