Hey, I'm wondering if I should try and participate in this listening test. I have never done anything like this, but I think it should be interesting. Now, in the readme, it says that headphones are a must. I have a pair of Bose QuietComfort, that have noise cancellation. Would they be usable?

And just some advice regarding the bittorrent stuff. You should have put all the sample archives in one torrent file, then it's much easier to seed/leech. For those of you complaining of slow browsing, when you're running bittorrent, you need to limit your upload speed in the client. Now, a good client for windows, that have one window for several torrents, is ĩTorrent.

I think so, I don't have much experience with headphones.

I will tell that Roberto he's responsible for hosting the samples and preparing the torrents.

Hm ... Why nobody care about final size? Itīs already normal.
ĻItīs VBR. Itīs normal that real bitrate will be 140 kbit/s while nominal bitrate 128Ļ
I think itīs normal that audiocodec can produce some deviation from nominal bitrate . But there is difference between final size of files encoded by different audiocodecs. Ok , maybe itunes better than nero, but itunes almost always has a bigger file size. Maybe at the same file size the result will be different.

Yes, Iīm caring about final size. My mp3player has 256 mb. And If my mp3s will have 264 mb I doubt I can explain point about VBR to my mp3player.

The same discussion was about testing of videocodecs. Some videocodecs always produced slightly bigger size than others. But itīs not reason to left it as is. Itīs impossible to feat 4600 mb gb to 1 standard DVD 4486 Mb.
