Default Sound Quality

right how many of you are particular fussy about having mp3's at 128Kbps and have to have it bumped upto 320 ?

well i challenge you to see if you can hear the difference

It was pretty obvious which one was better quality. That's why I usually prefer mp3's that are 192kbps. You typically can't tell the difference then.

I got it right, but there was only a very small almost unnoticable difference between the two. All my music is 256KBs VBR.

no an easy test considering I'm listinging on crappy inear headphones bought from a pound shop.

even so i still was able to tell the difference. but only after a few listens.

and I was half expecting to get it wrong as well.

I can tell the difference, but it really makes the difference when its in my car. I only will use 320kbps in my car.
