I mean, can I sync on my idevice songs that have a higher bit rate than 320?
320 kbps is the highest standard mp3 quality. It is also the highest you can import through iTunes.
A non-standard 640kbps is possible but it uses a LAME encoder and I do not think Apple devices have the codec to support it.
The files aren't necessarily remastered. Some independent artists will release songs in high-resolution audio files, in the form of FLAC, Apple Lossless, or WAV files....after digging around I found that higher kbps can be imported and played. The sample rate has to be changed to 48khz though. Apple Lossless, ALAC, AIFF and WAV at over 4000 kbps have been imported. I think these are remastered files because CD audio is only 1411 kbps.
