There is no doubt that the state of the art wants the devices and the various components to leave the cables behind them, with the headsets as an example. But when we compare the audio quality of a handset Bluetooth and a wired headset, things are changing.
A research recently conducted by SoundGuys, says that Bluetooth headphones (wireless) are not even close to earning wires in the sound quality field.
To conduct this research, the research team used a high resolution Bluetooth interface with S / PDIF output to test the Bluetooth output of four flagship phones. They checked 24 bit as well as 16 bit to see how each codec was executed differently. After many tests, they came to the conclusion that each Bluetooth codec had sound quality problems.
"There is no available codec that can compete with cable signal quality," said SoundGuys in her research. He also came to the conclusion that good audio lovers should avoid the ACC codec. In short, this means that one should avoid AirPods if they are looking for Bluetooth headphones with good sound quality.
However, this research does not matter if you are over 24 years or you are not interested in sound quality at all. It seems that most people over the age of 24 can not distinguish the small quality problems in their headphones unless they use an ACC.
In a world where many people have now accepted smartphones without a headphone jack, it's probably a little hard to get back to the wired headphones model.
