Teens increasingly prefer MP3 to superior formats

Posted on Saturday, March 14 2009 @ 11:16:07 CET by

Stanford University's professor of music, Jonathan Berger, talked at an event about a test he performs each year with his new students. He claims teens are increasingly preferring MP3 sound, because that's what they're most familiar with:
According to Dougherty, Berger described a test he performs each year with his new students. In the test, the students have to listen to a variety of recordings that span several compression formats from MP3 upwards, and then state which one they preferred.

According to Berger, the preference for MP3 files rises every year, explaining that the next generation prefers the “sizzle sounds” of MP3s because they’re familiar with them. Dougherty likens this to the preference for vinyl records among some people who grew up with the archaic discs, saying that it’s not necessarily down to a perception of higher quality as much as the fact that they’re used to that particular sound.
