what is the lowest bit rate these headphones sound good playing?

Does your music collection have to be lossless for music on these headphones to sound nice? Or is 256 kbps kbps mp3 okay?

    I listened to these headphones last night playing 320kbps MP3 music and they still sounded incredible. I used to use lossless tracks thinking that it would give far better sound quality but compared to 320kbps I can't tell the difference. One disadvantage with these headphones is that they do tend to show up low quality music but 256kbps should be absolutely fine.
