Mourning horse walking barefoot. This saying can be applied to Apple in California, which introduced it yesterday Lossless streaming of music Inside Apple Music. Although one would expect the company’s products with a delicious apple in the logo to be among the first to back all the news, the opposite is true. You definitely won’t enjoy high quality and surround sound in all products, even those they are offered directly for.
Let’s put aside the fact that you will need an external adapter to achieve maximum quality. You can listen to audio without losing data on your iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV, but not with headphones AirPodsAnd the AirPods Pro Or AirPods Max. In the case of sticks and plugs, the impossibility of sending lossless audio via Bluetooth is justifiable, but with the premium AirPods Max, which can also be connected via cable and the speed reducer to an iPhone, this is no longer fully understood.
If you connect your AirPods Max to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac via a Lightning cable and lower it to a 3.5mm jack, the headphones will convert the digital track to analog and then revert to digital form, with a loss. It’s hard to say that with AirPods Max, you can enjoy music in high quality.
The new lossless music streaming isn’t even supported by HomePod and HomePod mini speakers, which is definitely a shame, and especially freezes those customers who have bought more speakers from Apple in their homes to create a stereo effect. Spatial audio, or surround sound within Dolby Atmos, is available for all Apple headphones and speakers, so loyal customers will at least see it. If you want to enjoy lossless music quality with Apple Music, all you have to do is purchase headphones with ALAC codec support and an external adapter.
