As someone who produces music I can say that the difference between the MP3 and the AIFF versions of my songs are quite noticeably different, though I often prefer the more compressed, distorted, sound of MP3s.

That is to say, when you listen to the AIFF, you can hear all the imperfections in the recording. If these imperfections are problematic then the MP3 will sound better.
