3.5mm isn't obsolete, it's only made redundant due to certain companies to make phone slimmer, on the other digital audio players use 3.5 mm jack as main audio which means it's not an audio quality issue (they also sound much better than any phone apart from audiophile grade onkyo dp-cmx1
2.5 or 4.5mm jack is also used for balanced audio which allows to drive hard to drive earphones
[deleted post]If the lightning port is a better alternative. At least provide 2 lightning ports!
I'll stick to FLAC especially now when storage keeps getting bigger faster and cheaper
Many TV and speakers supporting SD card and/or USB support MP3. Even the big companies too. Low to Mid range device might not support aac or m4a but definitely mp3 :)
Br0wn5ugar, 15 May 2017An article to tell everyone MP3 isn't dead? Up next: Water is wet...Lol!
all i need is FLAC/WAV music files, good headphones, dac+amp and most important of all is the 3.5mm jack in all devices.
Intangible things like mp3 format will never die. Its not an object. Old but reliable. Dont tell me the next iphone will remove mp3 format just because its 'old' & 'obsolete'. -_-
I think MP5 has better delivery system than mp3, it is more effective against crowd(noise)
compressed audio format one side uncompressed audio format one side!
Waveform Audio File Format or WAV is real king:
Since the sampling rate of a WAV file can vary from 1 Hz to 4.3 GHz, and the number of channels can be as high as 65535, .wav files have also been used for non-audio data
Mp3!? I'm sure for me is dead
