Should i go to 64kps?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have a iPod nano 2Gb.
It's always full because i have 1800 songs (most 128 or 192 kps mp3's) but it will only take 300/350 songs in those rates.
Should i go to 64kps so i can fit more music or it would sound crappy.
I never used 64kps but 128 already sounds kinda bad....
I have creative's hq-1700 btw.

I use 320kbs for mp3's on my iPod video, but on songs I like better, I go for Apple's 1000kbs.

128k is the most common.

you could try 96k if its available. you're heading towards sucky sound though.

I suppose it depends on your taste, if the sound quality at 64 doesn't bother you, go for it! But I personally like to stay above 128 and be at 192 ideally. I have a 4gb mp3 player and go for quality over quantity, I have 3 of my cd's on their as uncompressed wavs. So I don't fit as much as I could on their, but I don't mind hookin it up to the ol' computer and switching em out every now and then.

Edit: What format does Ipods use, I don't know? Is it aac or something? Anyways, different audio formats sound different at different bit rates. I had an audio class at school and had to research file compressions and found that mp3's get worse a lot faster at low bitrates, but wma's on the other hand still sound solid even down at 64kbps. So if you can put more than one format on their, experiment with different formats and bit rates and find one that works for you to maximize both quality and quatity.

If this is for professional stuff, i would say 100% no.

For personal use i stay at around 100 kbps VBR, simply to save space on my 8 gig nano.

I haven't noticed much of a diff, and having 3x more music is more important to me than about a 10% quality loss. I would estimate 10%, just my opinion from hearing higher kbps like 160-300 down to 100

i think ill try 100kps.
It's not professional use, atleast yet.
I'm thinking about getting a new mp3 anyway so i can watch videos.

do you hate your ears? sounds like it!

I use 192 kb/s (max my player supports) and used to use ~1,000 kb/s tracks on my PC. If you need more space, get a bigger player, don't cheap out on crap quality
