I have all my music in flac on my S9 and battery life is still very good. I listen for a couple of hours each day and it lasts well over a week. The funny thing is all my music on my ZuneHD is wma lossless and the player has terrible battery life... maybe a couple of days.

25-27 hours is what I've tracked playing Flac, after that I forgot to keep track. This is with just some basic BBE settings. Battery life also depends on the volume you use (I've mine usually between 15-19) and the amount of BBE enhancements being used. The more BBE enhancements the less battery life. Earlier I was using high settings in BBE & my S9 was not going beyond 39-40 hours.

With mixed playback (not just Flac), some people here seem to get about 50 hours (as per what I've read around).

FLAC is a very efficient codec, it's actually easier to decode than MP3.
