Default WMA vs AAC#which one sounds better?

WMA, MS format

AAC,Apple inc.

i want to stuff as much as possible songs into my phone's mmc.
varried bitrate of mp3 to 64 and size halved but quality decreased greatly.

switched over to aac,64kbps coding and mbs halved,but not much degradation in sound quality.any further reduction results in noticiable degradation.

tried wma,64kbps,size exactly equal to aac or equivalent mp3,but quality,,certainly way better than mp3,but better than aac??????

i listened to a single song almost 300 times(mp3 at default bitrate,aac and wma at 64kbps each)

i think wma sounds better than aac(wma>aac,for a given bitrate and other similar parameters)

what sounds better to u?
