How the FLAC do I tell MP3s from lossless audio?

Paul Crawford Silver badge

The ability to tell the difference depends on 3 things:

1) The original quality of the recording.

2) how good your system and ears are.

3) What sort of MP3 compression is in use.

Number (3) is critical, if you are using 128kbit fixed-rate coding then I am pretty confident you will tell the difference, if you are using 320kbit variable-rate I would doubt most could.
