[vorbis] Is Vorbis really THIS good?

Also, I do notice a difference from oggs encoded at lower bitrates (such as 
128) compared to vbr's made by lame (which in this example happen to be 180). 
They have more bass and less high frequency than they should and it's 
noticeable when playing against the original wave.  

lame thought it necessary to have a bitrate that high to sound most like the 
original yet still saving tons of space.  oggenc thought it necessary to only 
encode it at 126KB/s.  no matter what setting i tell it that it can go up to.

Perhaps a -h argument is needed to override the strict space saver biased 
encoding in favor of a more realistic sounding file.
