Incorrect! ;-)

I am able to say the difference between ogg 96 and ogg 128. Not to 
mention the difference between ogg and wav. (ofcourse as someone else 
mentioned, you need high quality speakers or headphones to be able to 
do so. With a $20 speaker, mp3 64 and wav probably do not sound that 

face it guys, ogg and mp3 are both lossy codecs. Between ogg and mp3, 
ogg is both more compressed and has got better quaility.
