Soundcloud Denies Downgrading Audio Quality | hypebot

SoundCloud_logoAfter multiple Soundcloud users complained online about an unwanted downgrading from 128 kbps MP3 to 64 kbps Opus when using the streaming platform, the company issued an explanation. 


"We always appreciate feedback, but these reports are inaccurate," a SoundCloud spokesperson told Billboard. "SoundCloud has not altered its approach to audio quality. We have been using the Opus codec (among others) since 2016, and we regularly test different combinations of encoding and streaming to offer listeners a quality experience on any device.

"Furthermore, we store all content from creators at its originally uploaded quality level so we can continually adapt to advances in encoding and playback."
