Every song has its unique sound, message, and lyrics that everyone interprets differently. Being able to have the best sound quality is what draws us to purchasing high-end headphones. This is to optimize our listening experience. The importance of optimizing sound quality draws people to purchase high-end, studio-quality headphones. Spotify is planning to release “HiFi,” an offer to optimize Premium subscribers’ listening experience.
With this release, Spotify is showcasing not only their technological capabilities. They are also proving their dedication to subscribers. This has been a request from their followers in recent years. The definition of music is “vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.” This new listening experience is said to bring CD-quality music to our headphones or Spotify’s connect-enabled speakers. There are no public announcements as to if Spotify’s HiFi will come at a price. Currently, Tidal has one of the best HiFi additions to the platform which costs $19.99/month and offers 44.1kHz/16bit. Tidal’s competitor, Deezer, offers the same listening experience for the same price. Will Spotify’s HiFi compete to offer a better listening experience?
A New Experience?
Could Spotify HiFi significantly alter our listening experience, or even music altogether? In a Spotify interview with Billie Eilish, she said “there are things you will not hear if you don’t have a good sound system.” This statement from Eilish proposes the idea that we could be missing melodies or beats in our favorite songs. This is because our speakers can’t pick up the studio-quality sounds. Spotify’s HiFi can out-compete Tidal and Deezer by offering HiFi at little or no cost. This means that music could be fully experienced by all people. Every song has its nuances, and the quality of speakers available to the public should not affect how we perceive the message of music and the emotions that it brings.
