When first coined, presumably in 1980 by the Washington Post, it was spelled "sound bite." I don't believe the spelling here was ever meant to be synonymous, though it's not difficult to see why it would have been picked up.

It is nonsensical to me, since there is no way you could encode even one second of sound is as little as eight bits.

I've lately seen the more common sound bite written this way, which actually makes a bit more sense to me.
