And there's only 1 aspect to hearing? You think that hearing is just that much more simple? And all humans have the same hearing? Oh right, it's not like any persons have better hearing than the rest of us (blind people are an example).
Fact is, sound info is removed when compressing to a 320 kbps MP3. The sound that's gone could've affected the listener, had it been there. Even frequencies we can't hear have been shown to affect us (in some cases a lot). Of course, this all assumes you have good speakers. There will be a difference in the music, so why are you saying that no one can hear the difference?
The point is that my post was an analogy. We get the 24 FPS BS all the time, but how often do we discuss if FLAC is necessary? People will understand that this is the same situation, you can't put a number on hearing, just like you can't put a number on vision. There are too many variables.
Sauce Boss even said that there's sometimes a noticeable difference (right after he said that a human can't hear more than 320 kbps
