i save all of my imported music at 256 kbps mp4s. i haven't fiddled with variable, but i do download a lot of music from Amazon. if it's variable then the headphone speakers i use can't tell the difference. i think the big difference is in the encoding in that VBR takes more time to encode than CBR . . . but that doesn't affect end users.
