Hearing difference between compressed MP3's and FLAC does depend on who is comparing and what they are hearing them on, a casual music listener comparing two tracks on a ipod with stock ear buds might not hear a difference . Someone who listens to a lot of music on high quality systems or headphones is more likely to hear a difference.
Some albums I have don't sound very different from MP3s to FLACX because of how they were mixed for the original CD a lot of modern music is compressed in the studio so it sounds the same on radio as it does on CD or on cheap ear buds.
