Repertoire C1: Versatile Audiophiles

Versatile Audiophiles who were typically born between 1970 and 1992 represent the least prevalent user type with a total of 10,1 % in population. Not only do they access the most expanded repertoire of audio technology, they also exhibit the most intense music use in everyday life. Whether original or self compiled CDs, radio, various digital storage media or cloud, website and streaming services – the majority of the Versatile Audiophiles uses all of them at least once a week. Those sources are accessed via car radio, hifi systems and analog radio devices as well as by manifold mobile devices, desktop PC or digital entertainment media. Regarding audio emitters they also represent the “omnivores” amongst all repertoires. On top of that they outperform the other user types in terms of their relative frequency of hifi headphone and subwoofer use.
