Is 128kbps good enough for an mp3?

A handful of years ago when I first started ripping mp3s it was commonly held that 128kpbs was as high as you needed to go, because after that the improvement in sound quality was unnoticeable.

I've stuck to that, and a recent online experiment at Cognitive Daily supports it. Read the full story here, and as usual the comments are worth reading too.

I have been ripping music at 128 because of the balance of quality and size. Nice to hear that i'm not missing out on much audio fidelity. Great story. Thanks.
