A doubt about audio bitrate...

Programs often say that a lower bitrate in audio files means lower quality...
But when I convert an MP3 file to another MP3 file, but of less bitrate (128 kbps -> 64 kbps) It sounds exactly the same for me:o
What exactly changes when I do this conversion? The only change I notice is a lighter audio file

That either means that your music was already low-quality to begin with or that you don't have the necessary hardware to listen to higher quality music. Which really, unless you have an ancient computer, you should be able to hear the difference. My guess is that you either have really bad speakers/headphones or you just picked a specific case where the song compresses well.

There is a song where I could hear the difference, and I didn't find it to be that different ._.
And I mostly do this for size reasons

Size reasons are the only reason anyone compresses anything ever :p

Every compression means you lose some information in the file. If you don't have a decent audio card, a decent head set, and also know the sounds how they should be, its hard to tell the difference. Also it depends on what kind of sounds you are compressing.


How it works ... well better read here for a more detailed version [link]
