I think the only issue is when you want to install after market sub/amplifier.Some believe that you get better audio for music. Others want to hear the engine noise more. Some believe it is safer because you hear more noise from outside your car and therefore be more aware of their surroundings.
Can’t find the post again but I believe they said it really only improves the XM radio quality. I have the free trial but with CarPlay I don’t have any use for XM. YMMV.I think the only issue is when you want to install after market sub/amplifier.
Not sure disabling ANC with stock audio makes any difference. Anyone who disabled ANC please confirm if the audio quality is better with stock audio after disabling ANC?
