    Hi, guys, I am a proud convert to android from BB about 8 months ago--I first had an s3, and now have a nexus 4 and love it.

    I listen to a lot of music, and I have found myself listening to mostly all of it on google play music because of the auto sync i have set up with my music on my computer. Before that, I used n7 player.

    I am going to be getting some better headphones in the near future (~$200) and I want to be able to listen to the best possibly music quality on my device.

    Is there anything I can do that will be able to (easily) improve my listening experience? Is google play music ok, or should I be using n7 (or poweramp or others)

    What is the highest bitrate that my N4 can handle? I can get FLAC music on here, but I feel like that would be a total waste of memory.

    So, I guess my question is how to get the best audio quality on my device without anything too complicated. Any suggestions?



    Thanks! (Also, I listen to rap music 80+% of the time. Other genres too, but I am mostly concerned with rap, if that matters)

    I think the best would be to equalize your music to your liking. I would also recommend looking at something like this for a better source.
    I'd also recommend heading over to head-fi forums and asking what they do to get high quality music. Those guys are audiofiles so they'll know what you need to look for

    thanks for your quick reply!

    at this point, i do know how to get high quality music on my computer and then drag and drop onto my device, i just do not know which app will make the best of that---and i don't want to have to get a headphone amp


    so, maybe my question is more like this: what music apps can make my high quality music sound better on my N4, and what is highest bit rate that my N4 can fully take advantage of? (I know i could be playing all FLAC, but i am thinking that at some point, maybe 320kbps or so, it stops making a difference on my device.)

    Thanks!
