Due to Apple’s use of old AAC systems, it has been noticed that not even their own super expensive AirPods Max headphones will benefit from Apple’s own Lossless Audio. Apple Music will be able to stream music in 24bit / 48Khz and 24bit / 192Khz, but instead of investing in one of the existing standards, Apple has chosen to walk their own way (as always) with its own Apple Lossless Audio Codec.

In an interview with T3, Apple now confirms that their own headphones will not support their high-definition sound due to the 24-year-old standard used, instead of more modern 24-bit music.

Sounds like a brain fart to me.
