How to choose optimal bitrate for lossy format
To save storage space, we need to choose the minimal bitrate that gives acceptable sound quality.
As a rule of thumb, 256kbps or higher is recommended.
In case, you would like to choose an optimal bitrate by yourself based on your system hardware and software configurations, you could follow the steps below
Find a few lossless files such as FLAC, WAV, and AIFF.
Convert each of them to mp3 with different bitrates by the iAudioConverter.
Compare the sound quality of the mp3 files with their originals. Give a score for each of the bitrates.
Determine the best quality at the minimal bitrate.
