So, serious discussion intended here, just how bad is the bass content in a 320kbps file really, huh?

Clarity in the bottom end of a sine wave that's only wobbling back and forth 40 to 50 times a second???

Whereas arguably, it's the high end (trying to track the detail in a waveform flicking back and forth, say, 10,000 times a second with only 1/4 of the original wave data material) is where the seriously hard task of mp3 compression comes into play.

Anyway, I regularly see the complaint of bass from mp3s being critiqued, but I'm not hearing it myself.
