I'm recording in Auditon and on my computer, it sounds great, even after I export it as an MP3 file. But when I listen to the file on my phone, the audio quality drops drastically. It sort of sounds like the audio is constantly peaking, even though I know it's not. I wish I could say it's just my phone being old (it's an iPhone 7), but when I listen to music, youtube, etc. through my phone's speaker, it sounds just fine--it's only my recorded audio files that sound low quality. I have tried listening to my finished edited audio, and completely raw audio, and both have the same sound quality issue on my phone. I'm working with a ShureSM7B microhone if that makes any difference. If you have any idea why this is happening or any advice on how to fix it, I would be eternally grateful. Thank you so much!

iPhones are format-sensitive, as far as I can make out. They seem to be rather happier with stuff that is MP4-based than MP3. And if it sounds okay in Audition on your computer, then it is your phone - but probably not for a reason you might have been thinking. There are other possibilities - what bit rate are you saving your MP3 files at?

I was using a 24 bit rate. I tried playing the audio on an iPad as well just to triple check that it wasn't my phone speakers, and had the same sound quality issue there as well.

Potentially the same problem - it's an Apple device. Can you post a bit of a typical file? That way we can check it on a non-Apple device that's definitely not format-prejudiced - like a Samsung, or just about any other device I can think of...
