I'm currently listening to a playlist that comprises of the MP3 version of THP digital album, as well as the FLAC version sent out on August 12. I'm shuffling it so I won't know what's coming, and honestly I can't tell the difference. I've heard songs twice, and neither stood out to me as being better quality, I couldn't ID which was an MP3 and which was FLAC. I'm using Audio-Technica Headphones plugged directly into my computer, playing off of VLC media player. What do you guys think? Can you hear a difference? I'd love to hear from some people who really know about compression and can explain why there might be/might not be a difference and such.
