This is a great point, A. One that could be a whole article. Music doesn’t seem to be as important to people as it once was. It is no longer a major form of entertainment and has to compete with social media, Netflix, video game consoles, etc. As you said, for many it is simply background noise. And being secondary, audio quality becomes secondary. Who needs good sounding “background noise?”
