I don't have Big Sur and mostly use Airpods with my phone, but I've compared Apple music to Amazon high res on my computer with nice headphones and my interface.

I can hear a difference between the lossy vs the lossless. Lossless sounds smoother and more extended in the highs. Lossy sounds 'perforated' if I can use that word.

As for high res vs CD quality, can't really hear a difference. I might be able to imagine a slightly deeper soundstage with 24 vs 16 bits when listening to older music with more dynamic range, but don't know if that's placebo.
