Now generally speaking, lossy compression doesn't do so well with the higher frequencies when you have to use lower bit rates. When I say lower bit rates, I am thinking about rates below that magic combination of 128 kilobits per second, matched with a sample rate of 44.1 kHz. You'll notice that if you start to apply rates lower than this, you might get something like a searing sound on some of the higher frequencies or quicker transients, things like vocals and symbols.
