You don't have to do the ABX audio test in an 8 hour non-stop session.
You can do two test runs, go to sleep, do three more, go to a movie,
do one more, play some soccer and then do the remaining four. And if
you have golden ears each run shouldn't have to take more than 20
seconds or so.

We don't know the settings used to make your friend's MP3s so it's
hard to say anything specific about that test case. He might have used
"-b 64" or something.
As said before; there are MP3 encoders (at least many of the older
ones) that produce lots of audible artifacts. Recent versions of lame
happens to be among the ones that produces the least.
If you can truthfully ABX my files then you're perfectly entitled to
claim MP3s sound bad to you. At least we won't be able to say that
*you* can't hear the difference.
