Oh, and if any of you is afraid of FLAC being open-source, consider that Apple released a Beatles complete works using FLAC 24 bit (a bit pricy, between 250 and 350 euros), quality higher than that of ordinary CDs.

I was moving my discs on my SE Xperia X10 running Android and I was using OGG Vorbis with what I call(ed) quasi-insanely high quality, that is using -q 9 (targets 320kb/s). And I've decided to give FLAC a spin: it kicks ass! I think I'll stop caring about the size of FLACs (on an average CD, around 350MB, compared to about 160MB for Vorbis -q 9). The sound is crystal clear in my Phillips Stretch headphones.

On Android support for FLAC tags is patchy, and you can use Extended Media Scanner to fix it (worked for me).

In my opinion, the best patent-free audio codec and audio file format. Good compression support, save in some cases, more audio data, compared to wav.
