• I think usability or portability is far more important than sound quality, as long as it’s good enough to understand. I think the average person doesn’t really know the difference between high quality and low quality audio.

      I agree with your point “I think the average person doesn’t really know the difference between high quality and low quality audio.” In fact, the average person needs to be educated.

      I have mentioned that one can still listen to high quality source even while retaining portability. I can give you an interesting anecdote. About some six months ago, one of my colleagues bought a very expensive audio system. He was bragging about it. I went to his house to have a feel. He plugs in an USB drive and starts playing some mp3s of Bollywood songs. I must have grown an invisible hand and that invisible hand was probably doing facepalms. I could hear the problems with his source material and him bragging about how good the bass sounds, simultaneously!
