The whole process is extremely simple. Navigate to Settings -> Music and scroll down to the “Playback & Downloads” section. There, enable the “High Quality On Cellular” option and if the “Use Cellular Data” option is turned off, enable it as well.

From then on, you will hear the highest quality audio when streaming a song or a station in the Music app, not a compressed version.

With the risk of repeating myself, I feel obligated to point out once more that having this option enabled will not just provide noticeably improved sound quality but it will also use significantly more cellular data.
