### How many bits is 44.1 kHz?

High-resolution audio is generally used to refer to music files that have a higher sampling frequency and/or bit depth than that of Compact Disc Digital Audio (CD-DA), which operates at 44.1 kHz/16-bit.

#### Is 44.1 kHz better than 48KHz?

First, 48 kHz allows for better sounding anti-aliasing filters than 44.1. Second, 48 kHz uses only slightly more disk space than 44.1. Third, videos usually require 48 kHz audio and much of our audio will be embedded in a YouTube or other video as part of distribution.

Is 16-bit 48kHz enough?

If you’re over 20, that number should be about 16-17kHz, lower if you’re over 30, and so on. If your hearing can’t reach anything higher than 22.05kHz, then the 44.1kHz file can outresolve the range of frequencies you can hear.

What kHz is good for gaming?

Anything lower is too soft but higher than 28 KHz will give you noise pollution. However, the sweet spot ranges between 20 Hz to 20 KHz – perfect for any competitive game.

## Why CD sampling rate is 44.1 kHz?

The limit of human hearing is approximately 20kHz, which hence requires a sample rate of approximately 40Khz. This is why CDs are sampled at 44Khz. i.e. each second of recording in a CD contains 44,000 measurements of the highest possible frequency contained in the recording.

### Is 48khz 16bit good?

If you want good dynamic range, 24 bits is better than 16. On the other hand if you want better high-frequency response, 96 kHz is better than 48. According to Nyquist’s theorem a 48 kHz sampling rate handles frequencies up to 24 kHz perfectly so it’s not clear if having a higher sampling rate will actually gain much.
