Get to Know about the Audio Quality of Spotify

Posted to Spotify Music News & Tips by Laurence Bradley on February 19, 2020

Summary

You've probably heard the term "bitrate" before, and you may have some general ideas of what it is, or what it means. But as we use computers more and more frequently, we talk about bit rate more and more often, so it is important to clearly understand what the bit rate is and what is the relationship between bit rate and Spotify that we used to stream music every day. In this post, we will not only explain the meaning and relevance of bit rate to you, but also let you know how to get high audio quality Spotify songs in plain format by using TuneMobie Spotify Music Converter.

Something You Should Know about Bit Rate and Spotify Audio Quality

At a macro level, bit rate is the number of bits that are conveyed or processed per unit of time. "Bps", short for a bit per second, is a unit of bit rate. In computer use, the common units of bit rate are Mbps, Kbps and so on. It may be a little confusing to read only the macro definition of bit rate, let's talk about a more specific example. In the field of digital multimedia, like using Spotify, if the bit rate of a Spotify downloaded song in 320kbps, then it means that this song stores 320 kb of data per second. Some of you may have known that Spotify streams music at a bit rate of 320kbps and is encoded with OGG format. Another key fact to remember, a higher bit rate means better audio quality, so an OGG format file with a bit rate of 320 kbps, its audio quality is actually high enough.

Spotify 320 Kbps Audio Quality

If you compare it to a higher-bit-rate audio file, there is actually no difference in hearing through the human ear. As we all know, Spotify provides users with four levels of audio quality when we stream music with Spotify, which are Low, Normal, High and Very High. If you are using Spotify with a free account, you can choose one from Low, Normal and High, their corresponding bit rates are 24kbps, 96kbps and 160kbps. If you are using Spotify with a premium account, you can enjoy streaming Spotify music with Very High audio quality, which the bitrate is 320kbps. Generally speaking, if you choose to stream Spotify music with the Very High audio quality on your phone, it may consume a lot of cellular data. You can change the audio quality on your phone by tapping the Settings icon > Music Quality, and then choose the one you want.

As music lovers and Spotify users, we certainly want to be able to listen and use Spotify music with the highest audio quality (320kbps) without restriction. But the reality is not the same as we imagined. Subscribing to Spotify premium is the only way to listen to and download the highest quality Spotify music, we are even limited to listening to them on up to 5 different supported devices. At the same time, we can't use the downloaded Spotify OGG audio files in our video editing software, and it is impossible to re-create them. We download Spotify songs with the best audio quality, but can't listen and use freely, this is kind of unacceptable. Therefore, we need a solution, and it should be a professional and reliable one, TuneMobie Spotify Music Converter is currently the ultimate solution to this problem. We can first look at the features of this Spotify music converter.
