My ears are ruined, years of gigs, both playing on stage standing in front of 12” celestions, and attending, plus always having my music maxed out has left my ears a bit unresponsive are some frequencies. This means all music sound quality sounds shite at any bitrate. However, I still enjoy a decent track just as much as I ever did, it’s not all about the pure audio reproduction.
Same goes for video. A decent film is a great watch on worn out VHS tape played through an ancient CRT set. A shit film on the best OLED screen is still a shit film,
