un-deleted mp3's = lower quality?

The other day I deleted about ten gig of MP3's by mistake. I quickly realized my mistake and was able to recover most using some undelete software. (I forget which. Laptop is at home and I'm on my phone right now.) The files play fine and sound normal, so my question is mostly academic as far my ears go. Does deleting and restoring audio files lower the quality? My guess is no, but I was curious.

I think something went wrong and now I own a blind camel.

If any errors were introduced by undeleting the files, the change would not be subtle. I think your files are just fine, but there are software applications that can test mp3s for corruption.
