The main advantage of VBRFix is, that you can force it to rewrite the header, while MP3Val only repairs things, which it has detected as wrong.

MP3Val can fix some more issues in the files, MP3Val also works with CBR files as well, I never tried VBRFix with CBR files, tbh.

Usually MP3Val does the main job for me. MP3Val is very fast and does a great job, though I had 4 or 5 files in the past, where I had to use VBRFix to force a rewrite of the header, because MP3Val wasn't able to find anything wrong.

The best you can do, is scanning files with MP3Val, and if it shouldn't fix the problem, you still can open your copy of VBRFix and force a rewrite of the header.

One thing I'd recommend is, that you always let MP3Val create backup files. If you've checked the fixed files, you then still can manually delete the backup.
