Incorrect, you may want to take a look at hydrogenaudio comparisons, in particular ogg vorbis encoded with the aotuv patches, @ 192kbps mp3 is not even close.
OP: I use only ogg/192kbps in my j3, 1300 albums or so. Paired with the relatively inexpensive klipsh s4, I am amazed every time I use it, particularly with some awesome classical music recordings from deutsche grammophon. Battery lasts "a lot". I recharge it once a week, or every other week depending on use
