All of Deezer’s HiFi tracks can be downloaded, so you don’t have to compromise on quality when you listen to music offline. Plug in your high fidelity headphones and you’ll also get these added features with Deezer HiFi:
- Over 52 million songs all in FLAC quality
- No adverts interrupting your tunes
- Download all tracks, playlists or mixes and listen offline
- Listen on FLAC supported devices, including Android, iOS, web & desktop
- Groundbreaking 360 Reality Audio tracks in the ‘360 by Deezer’ app
I will be trying this out now, 3 month trial period then $14.99 a month. Very reasonable.
What is "flac quality"? I can record my 1912 scratchy old Edison recordings using my daughters hasbro plastic microphone to my benchmark ADC set to 192khz/24 bit in flac. What is the point? Are they going to verify that ALL of these 52 million songs were originally recorded in this "quality"? Are they going to run into the same issue as Amazon that they are not making software that can play back their "quality" files?
