-V 5 --vbr-new is transparent to me, but since I only keep using MP3 on my new portable device (Vorbis for home listening) I stick to -V 6 --vbr-new instead. In conjunction with the earbuds this setting is absolutely sufficient, hence I went for "-V6 ~ V9 or other" as setting of choice.

Edit: Forget what I wrote 'bout -V 6. Even -V 7 suffices for the combination noisy environment+earbuds.

My votes fall into the majority, -V5 is enough on my car and portable so this is the setting I use these days.

-v5 is transparent enough for my ears to justify its use on my iPod.

I went the opposite way. I _can_ ABX -V5 sometimes, but use it anyway with lots of lower quality content on my portable, because I don't drive+walk around ABXing!

-V5 --vbr-new, but since I'm paranoid and have space on my DAP I go for -V2 --vbr-new most of the time.

-V 5 is transparent for me, but I use -V 2 just to make sure that I won't here any artifacts if I improve my listening capabilities. It already happened to me when I thought 80kbps ABR is enough for me some times ago. Now these encodes sound terrible to me.

In fact I'm not using MP3s anymore, I encode to Vorbis -q6.

Weeheehee... that reminds me of my first encodings using the Windows Media Encoding Utility with WMA 8 @64 kbit/s around 5 or 6 years ago, when I was still stupid enough to trust Microsoft's marketing blabla concerning the so-called "CD quality" at this bitrate. The funny thing about this was the fact that my then-used 10 DM speakers (~5 Euro) actually produced some kind of "quality" that was hard to impossibly to distinguish from the sources. But some time later, listening to the tracks via the headphones and some better speakers quickly revealed the catastrophic truth...
