Is there really a difference between 128 and 320kbps?

Asked by bhec10 (6408 points ) December 21st, 2012

This is just a general question on the bit rate of songs. I’m not sure if I should “upgrade” my 128kbps songs to 320kbps.
Can you really tell the difference in quality of 128 and 320kbps songs? Which one is better?

I’ve got a few songs that were ripped off YouTube and some have 80 or 90 kbps and they sound awful, so at least those will need to be upgraded.

Besides the drawback in file size, are there any disadvantages of 320kbps?
