Buzz has it that Spotify, the well-renowned streaming service is working on a new tier, that will soon be up and running for all to use. Rumored to be named Spotify Hi-Fi, the new tier is expected to be priced at a higher price than that of the current monthly subscription fee. Although not yet confirmed by the company's official spokesperson, the story comes a move that has been long awaited. Moreover, close competitor Tidal currently offers high-fidelity stream and Spotify aims to step a notch higher.

What is the difference between lossless audio and standard audio you ask? The answer is humongous. In order to make an audio file compact, the piece is compressed. To further elaborate, an algorithm eliminates bits and pieces from your music that it believes can not be picked up by a bear-human ear. The over-all size of the music files is reduced and all you are left with is audio that lacks detail and finesse. In conclusion, lossless audio eliminates this entire messy reproduction and delivers it with minimum cuts of the nitsy-bitsy.

All being said, most audiophiles will unanimously agree that the difference between the two file qualities cannot be deciphered. Your music travels through Music players, soundcards and speakers until it delivers the melody to your ears. It is believed that the difference can hardly be interpreted by the average music listen. Can you tell the difference? Do let us know in the comments section below.
