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.

I archive in FLAC but transcode to AAC (Nero) CBR 256Kbps for my player. The minimum I would do if I had space issue is CBR 160Kbps or VBR .5.

Do an ABX test in any case, you will be shocked to see how low AAC can go. I just transcoded the musics of my iOS game to VBR .15 and they are (IMO) completely transparent compared to the original wave.
