depends on the bitrate, etc

side by side I can usually tell the difference

a couple years ago I couldn't tell very easily

once I started hearing it I couldn't stop

Maybe you're "caps lock" is activated. Would you please de-activate it - we all can hear,... see you. Normally itīs located on the left side of your computer keyboard.

Of Course Sa/fa Can Tell Mp3 From Wav But Can The Ear Tell The Differance !If it comes to smashing pumpkins, who I heard over and over again, I don't just hear the difference, I can feel the difference. mp3 just won't give me the creeps.
Mp3 algorithm is 15 years old, designed to fit on a (S)VCD besides a compressed video, why should I use it on a daily basis?

My ears can't tell the difference if it's encoded with a high bitrate.

Judging by all the other sites, Mp3's are still in high demand from ppl. I was just on a torrent site a few minutes ago and I saw someone say they got a show from another site and encoded it in mp3. No one seemed to mind in the thread.

I also should add that my hearing loss is safe in the mp3 frequency. I can't hear the highs anyway. :confused:

2. The most disturbing in mp3s for me are the artifacts introduced. Do you hear these sometimes?

As a matter of fact.. i just deleted some because they sounded like crap with weird noise in them.
