Just write this post to see(literally see) how much differences there are in a compressed mp3 with lossless FLAC and WAV.
I compared two sessions in TIME(from 《inception》 OST) with three compressed version: 44.1kHZ MP3 184kbps 44.1KHZ 16bit FLAC 608kbps VBR 44.1kHZ 16bit WAV 1141kbps
First bite: mp3
Hum…I swear they are three different screen snapshot… But I did barely see no difference from those waves… Dead eyes…
So, maybe I should find some session more dynamic, and I choose the the first rise in TIME, see below
Er… still nothing? Look closer…
put the waves together
MP3 vs WAV: mp3(red line), wav(green line)
FLAC vs WAV:flac(red line),wav(green line)
closer… 300x MP3 vs WAV: mp3(red line), wav(green line)
300x FLAC vs WAV:flac(red line),wav(green line)
Yes! There does have some differences between mp3 with wav!!! And it’s so apparently mp3 lost some tops and bottoms…
Seems I spend another 500% disk space for wav versions does worth something!!! Yep…
But Flac is nearly 50% space occupation of WAV… Still feels like listening to WAV. Er….
Don’t ask me if I can hear the difference between all these version… That’s what I’ll never tell… XOXO, geek girl
