What is meant by quality?

In a nutshell the less compression an audio file has the better the quality as it.

Think the visuals of a game at 480p is your typical mp3 while a FLAC file is more equivalent to 2K visuals

Techquickie did a good video explaining different formats

But also just listening to a FLAC file isn't going to make a difference if you're rockin the Dirty Buds from dollar tree

I'd suggest checking out the channel Dankpods especially his buying guides for headphones and audio devices as he talks about audio in a way that even a Dingus like me can Understand.

speaking of Doller tree you can buy a couple obscure indie band CD's from them and they sound just like any other CD I listened to, but the dirty buds, just looked up. Depending on what brand you get the $5USD buds are good for Ipods and MP3 players they the ones I gotten from Family Dollar for back in the day sound top notch, but the $1USD ones from standard dollar stores suck

What is meant by quality?

Just to build on what others have said…

If we’re talking about CD vs vinyl, it’s a matter of opinion which sounds better. I personally think CDs have the best sound quality, but a big reason vinyl has made a comeback is because many think it has a better sound.

Of the few comments to this simple question I posted most deviated from the physical media discussion to bring up digital file formats, and only one mentioned low quality headphones.

It wasn't a real question, it was a feeler. Because one thing I have learned over the years is that in general, the (physical) format doesn't actually matter. The quality of the equipment is what matters. Everyone hears differently as well, but even so, all sound can be fixed by equipment and environmental acoustics.

The only issues with (pressed) CDs I have encountered are with modern CDs that have clipping present, which indicates that the mastering source was digital. General illustration of what clipping is:

Equipment does play a good role in quality and so can file format, and like just stated how a CD was recorded, some CD's can have really poor sound altogether from the getgo, like a master that was put into digital then onto the Physical like just stated in the last post. But I really only came across a couple poorly done recordings one was a Walmart bought Moterhead CD that sounded vary scratchy and tinty all the sound in that recording was loud and I could barly tell the difference between instruments and drum taps, of course that CD stated that it was a remaster of a recording done on a poor budget by the band themselves, meaning that the it may or may not have been a crappy master just from the getgo since it said the band had vary little budget back when it was recorded.

I however never found a CD with that poor of a quality ever since then, it was Moterhead's debet album however it was technically a remaster so In my opinion should have been done better :-\

I personally think CDs have the best sound quality. I agree completely. My whole family gives me crap cause I picked up a 10 disk changer that I want to add to my Fiat cause "you can just listen to digital stuff from YouTube or whatever."

If there’s any WWE music anyone is looking for, I can probably get it for you   Aww man, this is freaking awesome. Are they available on Spotify? I use that when I gym and nothing would be cooler than Goldberg or DX entrance music when you are pushing weights.

A few versions of DX’s music are officially available digitally.
However, the one Goldberg uses currently (the same track he used in WCW back in the day) comes from a production music library; WWE did not produce it and therefore have no rights to release it. I have the track though, PM me if you want more info.
