Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

256k VBR and 320k fixed rate were both indistinguishable from the CD source.

I've done the same test myself on studio headphones and came to the same conclusion -- and 128k (most common rate used) is utter sh*te, which is why lots of people think MP3 is rubbish for sound quality.
