How does bit rates effect the quality of the file?


I am considering creating a new library for just the music my kids love and changing the bit rate to something lower than 128 to fit more music on their 16gb iphones/ipods.  Does lowering it real low really confuse the sound enough that an 8-13 year old kid would notice?  I want it really clear and crisp but how much does it mess with all of that when you downgrade them from 128 and above to lower?


Any information would be greatly appreciated.
