article imageApple's next revamp may be music to the ears of iTunes users

By Tech News     Apr 13, 2014 in Technology
Following weeks of speculation and rumors about Apple's purported plans to roll out a significant revamp of iTunes, reports have surfaced in recent days to suggest that Apple's foray into high-definition music is now on the horizon.
According to industry sources, 24-bit tracks could be unveiled before Apple's WWDC in June.
"That's right - Apple will launch hi-res iTunes in two months," reveals music and tech industry blogger Robert Hutton. "And at that point, you can say goodbye to HD Tracks, Acoustic Sounds Hi-Res store, and ProStudioMasters, and probably all the other hi-res audio online stores. Apple will kill them, straight out of the box."
It is suggested but, of course, not confirmed that songs in this high-performance category will come at a premium price. "I'm not sure I feel good about Apple entering hi-res - I hate monopolies, and I sure am not an Apple fan overall," Hutton concludes. "The reason labels will instantly migrate to Apple, despite business practices that are...well...not exactly consumer friendly, is that it is virtually certain there will be watermarking involved. That SHOULD be a deal breaker - for music fans at least - but the reality is, labels will hungrily embrace it."
If Apple launches 24-bit tracks as anticipated, it's a safe bet that sales of earbuds will climb as consumers clamor to secure the hardware needed to enjoy high-def music to the fullest. If you're in the market for new earbuds, here is a brisk rundown of the top earbuds according to FindTheBest.com.
