What would you choose between ~165 kbps and ~195 kbps levels for portable? I listen through Etymotic ER4 IEM, the player is a Sansa Fuze.

Try .45 and if you notice artifacts do .55.

One question, why not MP3? I use AAC (Nero) for the iPhone but MP3 (LAME) VBR -V2, -V0 for the Sansa. In many test you can see MP3 use less battery than AAC/OGG.

Battery life hasn't been a problem for me with AAC ~225 kbps on the Sansa(v2) so far. Out of curiosity, do you have a link to the relevant measurements?

I just started a large encoding job at ~150kbps. We'll se if I'll be able to spot any suspected artifacts. smile.gif
