Clean out your ears and use the best set of headphones you have and tell me two things after listening to both:
Can you tell any significant difference between the two?
Does the first sound low quality?

Tests when you know which

Tests when you know which file is supposed to have higher quality are pointless.
There is software to make double blind tests, I suggest to use it.

The idea was not to see if

The idea was not to see if they were "the same". They are not close enough anyway. I just wanted to know if other people could tell a significant difference.

Prejudge works the same.

Prejudge works the same. Seriously, I don't want to turn you down but such question is flawed.

How is it flawed? I'm not

How is it flawed? I'm not trying to determine which is better or if they're equal. Like I said, the first is obviously lower quality, so there's no point in any kind of blind test. The question is not "Is there a difference?", but rather "How much of a difference is there?".

I've already picked a setting now anyway, so there's no point in continuing this.

Vintage!
