Use the best music sources.
When you use AptX HD and play high-definition files, the sound of high-definition audio is so close Usually you will be equipped with wired headphones. It can play up to 48 kHz / 24-bit LPCM audio and is truly different from any Bluetooth wireless feature you've ever had. To achieve this you should use high-resolution sources such as Tidal HiFi or your own high-definition music files.
Playing normal MP3 files or Spotify music sounds better with AptX HD; However, this is not the insightful experience you have with high-definition content.
