Highlights•Stimulus complexity has been neglected in MMN studies with speech and non-speech.•We control for stimulus complexity and the difficulty of contrasts.•We find a lower MMN for spectrally rotated vowels compared to vowels.•Salient contrasts for the German language evoke the largest MMN.•Stimulus complexity does not explain differences of MMN in speech and non-speech.
