Prove it in an ABX test. I think you'll be surprised how low in
bitrate you need to go before being able to tell which is the "crap
mp3" and which is the "pristine, shimmering wav" :)

No psychoacoustic encoder is 100% foolproof which means there will
always be certain things it'll have problem coding properly and since
MP3 is an older technique, as compared to newer algorithms like
Vorbis, AAC, Opus and such, it might be slightly more prone to fail on
those particularly problematic samples.
That's not to say the average listener would be able to hear that anyway.

Good ears obviously implies not having been standing next to a
jackhammer for your whole life but in the case of audio testing good
or "golden" ears often means people who are really good at hearing
stuff like encoder added pre-echo, phasing problems and such.

You should read Monty's (of Ogg/Vorbis and Opus/CELT fame) 24/192 post
: http://people.xiph.org/~xiphmont/demo/neil-young.html
When recording you should obviously go as high as feasible but 16/44.1
is more than adequate for listening.
