Trying to evaluate and compare audio quality can be a dispiriting exercise, not least because most of us appear content to listen to music on tiny earphones attached to mobile phones that fail to eliminate the sound of the outside world unless you turn up the volume beyond 11 and risk getting Brian Johnson’s ears.
