This is not the most high tech method, but see if you can guess the highest resolution audio from the clips supplied. Some of the music is crap but try to get past that and listen with a "critical ear".

 

Audio clips

 

 


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

I got 3/6. For the Katy Perry tune I was in a hurry and ended up choosing the 128 bit rate otherwise for the rest I picked 320 or lossless. I listened to the samples at a medium low level through an Altec Lansing PC speaker set with subwoofer along with some background noise in the room. I gave the samples two or more listenings and listened closely instead of "one casual listen and choose". I don't consider myself an audiophile but I am a musician and sound tech.

 

If you read the comments on the site, there were even some proclaimed audiophiles who didn't score well.

 

I'll be we would get 6/6 if the samples were all RUSH tunes and even NEW RUSH at that.

There's also a certain 'mud' in the mids. That reduces as you get to 256 and 320..but is still there.

Good got damn! I got 0 / 6!!  LMFAO!!

I did, however pic all the 320 kbps examples.  hehehe.   :P  Almost chose the wav for "Tom's Diner".  

 

Speaking of which, I did not know about that being the standard back in the day.  Boy did they ever get THAT wrong.  Vox only can sound fine in a compressed format.  It's when there's a ton of instruments / information that shit gets lost / squashed. 

 

I'm guessing this is the point of it all, but there really wasn't much of a discernible difference in those examples.  I'm also guessing that listening with headphones would get me different results.  

Huh. *shrug* Oh well.   :P :D :funyuns:

Yeah, I think the point is that mp3 is a perfectly decent format.
