Why You Shouldn’t Expect Lossless Audio from Your New Earbuds

The discussion on audio quality in mobile devices was recently sparked by a conversation with a former Qualcomm employee. The talk led to a realization that some phones, such as the Pixel 8 Pro, do not support lossless audio, even with compatible earbuds. Despite the fact that many devices support lossless audio via Bluetooth, none of the major manufacturers such as Google, Apple, or Samsung are on that list, with only lesser-known brands offering such support. The issue of compatibility between devices remains a major challenge in the mobile industry, and it is felt that more transparency is needed to inform consumers about which devices support specific features. As a result, it is recommended that consumers do their research before purchasing peripherals or wearables to ensure compatibility with their devices for the best experience.
