Then you're doing it wrong.
I can only guess that the bit rate is too low. The 64-128kbps default in many media players is set by the marketing team, not the developers.

Sorry. I went crazy for a moment. Sitting in a room all day, listening to those things.... can do that to you. I'm out now, but still suffering the effects.

I'd love to see a caffeine intake vs. perceived enhanced senses chart...

Well, at least in my case, caffeine reduces my ability to screen things out. For example, after a lot of coffee, the high-pitched whining of the TV drives me nuts, so I am clearly able to perceive it, but when I'm not caffeined-up I don't notice it, which I can only assume is because my mind screens it out.

That is, I can't hear it until I turn the TV around so it's back is facing me. But since I don't generally watch TV that way, it doesn't bother me until I get my grubby little paws on a packet of Jamaica Blue.

As for fluorescent lights, I'm never overly comfortable around them, though I can't really put my finger on why.

And at one point I swore that I had superhuman eyes because I could see the refresh in my 75HZ monitor (looking straight at it that is, anyone can see it in their periphery). Turned out that the monitor was simply on the blink. Oh, well.

But I can safely say that I have a pretty good sense of taste and smell (with or without my beloved 1,3,7-trimethylxanthine). I'm first to know if the milk's even thinking of turning sour, and I can smell a potato from a mile off.
