My best guess is MP3Pro, sounds alot like OGG (I might be tone deaf) but the files are smaller.

AFAIK, MP3Pro is only marginally better-supported than WMA (the "backward compatibility" is utter junk; put it out of your mind now). Go with Ogg Vorbis or MP3 if you care at all about people actually being able to play it.

I cant hear quality differences at all.

In formats I cant notice any differene what so ever. If there is an actual defect in the audio itself like a fuzz or a clicking noise then that's different.

I'd go with MP3 normal if that was an option... which it appears to be.

musepack (.mpc)... the only drawback it's not supported very well or at all in the portable media player industry, and i can't put it on my nomad. Still I hope it gains some popularity.

how about shorten (*.shn)? Completely lossless compression, but only about 1:2 compression ratio. Its basically the standard format for live show trading because any other compression would quickly render many live recordings unlistenable. I like it for what it does, but for casual downloading and listening I will stick with regular mp3s.
