testing here in Switzerland and there's a clear audible difference between premium through the PC app and the aforementioned trick through the web player.

There are many songs with which you can test the sound difference.  One that I would recommend is "Dreams" by Beck.  If you have Tidal and Spotify (using the instructions) I doubt you could spot any difference.

I had made the listening tests way before the time of this thread, several
months ago early this year. #1 Spotify app, #2 Spotify Web player & #3
Original CD. There was audible difference between #1 and #2 because the AAC
codec of #2 is better than the Ogg vorvis of #1. #1 also sounded slightly
louder and more dynamically compressed if I can recall. But #2 still was
missing most of the ambience room sound and reverb decay, the detail and
definition of the original CD. Also I never ended up using the Web player
as I was not able to integrate with the app, didn't work for me, very
impractical and slow and I think I could not play any playlists I had in my
app. Not to mention impossible to use on mobile device or offline. So with
TIDAL HiFi I have original CD quality or even master quality music. I still
have free trial till October I think. Fortunately I will pay same rate as
Spotify Premium in Argentina. So no more claims, look for solutions, crying
and tests for me. Solved.

Yep - totally works for me.  I'm located in the SF, Bay Area - U.S.  Not a subtle difference at all.  Like night and day.  Awesome!!

I listen to music on my phone a lot, on the go. And that's where tidal knocks Spotify out of the park. Volume goes two to three notches higher, sound is so much richer. I can actually enjoy it with some decent in-ears.

You're very fortunate.  Tidal over a phone network in my region is just a no go - at least with any kind of reliability or consistency.

hello if you dedicate more ram to chrome in experimental options it helps out the webplayer to and i have compaired the sound of tidal and spotify webplayer it is close to each other and the sound is very clear on the webplayer rite now so i think it could be posible that spotify team is testing the HIFI sound to se how mush bitrate is requierd.

Does this only work for people who received the beta invite for Spotify HiFi?

I would love to have HiRes streaming but Spotify's Playlist curation is just amazing

[Update] Spotify PC player just updated and the increase in sound quality is noticeable. Recommend updating when allowable.
