The sound quality of music content that a particular music streaming service provides is its competitive advantage or disadvantage. Today, two well-known music streaming services are competing to be considered the best in delivering sound.
Tidal was launched in early 2015. The world’s most famous performers and composers have been involved with this streaming service. Owners included Beyoncé, Jack White, Madonna, Daft Punk musicians, and Calvin Harris, among others. It was a great PR game that made the site more credible in the eyes of the fans. The president of the company that owns Tidal is none other than American rapper Jay-Z. To be clear, Tidal offers the highest signal quality of any streaming app on the market. There are two subscription versions to choose from: Tidal Premium and Tidal HiFi. Tidal sound quality: 320 kbps AAC, 1411 kbps FLAC (HiFi tariff).
With regard to Deezer, two types of accounts are offered to Users: Discovery (free) and Premium Plus (paid). Only the paid account offers ad-free music, offline access and high quality audio i.e. MP3 320 kbps. Deezer Elite is the most important advantage this music streaming service has over its largest competitors. It guarantees the ability to listen to music in virtually lossless format (1411 kbps; 16 bit and 44.1 kHz). In this, French music streaming Deezer compares to its main competitor, Danish streaming service Tidal.
In the case of Deezer, we can expect clear and correct sound quality, listening to music almost like a FLAC CD. Of course, if you want the perfect musical sound, you should consider a more serious sound system and get good quality speakers. This statement is completely true for his competitor.
By default, Tidal is the loudest and highest quality of all music streaming apps, but its full benefits can only be appreciated when using high quality audio playback equipment. It is this service that holds the first place in the global streaming music market in terms of sound quality. As for its main competitor, its sound quality today is already comparable to that of Tidal, but only in the expensive paid version.
Therefore, the choice of the service with the best sounding from the two offered remains with the user. It will be he who will decide what sound quality will seem to him the best. If the user is going to use inexpensive, low quality audio equipment, then there is simply no point in buying an expensive version of one of the music streaming applications described above.
