Yes, absolutely - WMA is usually equivalent in audio quality to MP3 at one "notch" higher. ie: a 128 kbps WMA is roughly as good as a 160 kbps MP3, and a 64 kbps WMA is as good as a 96 kbps or even 128 kbps MP3. Of course, this varies based on the music you're listening to, the headphones/speakers you've using, your sound card...etc. There are a LOT of variables that come into play when it comes to comparing audio codeccs, which is why I get irked when people claim that one format is the end-all and be-all for EVERYONE, rather than just their needs.
