Can someone post samples of 128,192,320kbps and FLAC?

I'm wondering if I can hear the difference between them.

This is a fun site.  With some of my gear I can hear the difference while other gear leaves me just guessing.  It may not be as simple as if you can hear the difference.  The ear is incredible sensitive.  Your gear may be the limit.  For example I cannot hear the difference very well with my m903 powering my AH-D2000, but using the m903 to power my DT990 I really hear a difference.  Many times compression limits the high end of the frequency response so a dark sounding headphone may just cover up the compression.  So listen for the high hat, cymbals, or metallic guitar strings and that will really help you detect the difference.

That's what i'm looking for as well so i don't have to rip a song 4 times, that website is neat but you can tell the difference between 128 and lossless pretty quickly.

I can't hear the difference.

I guess it's because I'm using my Apple earbuds...

Haha got them right w/ laptop speakers =] I think 128 kbps sounds a little bit fuzzy at some parts? A bit less detail and seems like narrower dynamic range. What made you guys distinguish them?

Haha, I went 0/4. Oh well. This is actually good news, as far as I'm concerned. Even if I had noticed any subtle differences, I think I'd rather save some space on my Zune. I prefer 192kpbs over 320 for the space savings. They weren't different enough to justify wasting so much precious space, in my opinion. That's just my opinion, though.

2/2 and 0/4 are hardly statistically significant, guys. You should do at least 10 trials, preferably 20.

True. I wish the test had more than 2 songs to for the test, although you can just take the test over and over i guess =/

This was fun. Does anybody know the name of the songs? They're pretty fun.
