Shrinking MP3s?

I have some MP3s on my hard drive that are 320kbps.

No bueno. I need them to be down in the 160-192 range so that I can fit more on my MP3 player at the gym.

Without downloading or ripping them again, is there a way to lessen the quality a bit so they are not as large?

Uncompress and recompress them.

You just need a program capable of doing it. I use AudioCatalyst. It's a two-step process though...first you decompress it, and the result will be a large .wav file (40-60 megs). Then compress it using the compression level you want (128 kbps, etc). I caution you though that this will cause some loss of quality. Shouldn't be too bad but it may be noticable.
