Frankly, I wouldn't use 64kbps mp3 even for voice. I get increasingly annoyed every time an "s" or "t" is pronounced when encoded at these low bitrates, the bad quality is just so evident. Unless you have very poor headphones, you are able to hear these faulty artifacts all the way through 160kbps.
Open source is one thing, but the actual audible advantages of (Ogg) Vorbis is enough to "choose" this a as lossy storage format. Especially when Android phones are natively compatible with this, and VLC player for desktop computers. Ogg Vorbis is quite remarkable when considering quality per byte. I guess that is also the reason Spotify uses this for their digital music transportation.
