Sound quality Question (kbps/kHz)

After I ripped a sound file and saved it under a different format and kbps/kHz that someone else already ripped I did a side by side comparison of sound quality and found mine to be much clearer and couldnt help to ask what exactly makes a better music file?.

Mine: 706 kbps & 22kHz. Wav format. (sounds clearer)

His: 192 kbps & 44kHz. Mp3 format. (sounds worse)

(As you can see I have a much higher kbps but only half his kHz.)

The higher the kbps/kHz the better the sound quality?. Can this be a rule of thumb or does it depend on other factors?.

Pardon my noobness
