The difference would be too small to measure, unless the microphones were very directional.
Arrange them in a cross, and measure time-of-arrival.

that makes sense i was just hoping to make a robot that followed the loudest sound with mics on it.

That's a surprisingly difficult thing to do, unless the sound from different sources comes in distinct, discreet "lumps", like Mike described.
Otherwise you have to correlate to identify the different sources, and the Arduino doesn't have the processing horsepower.

ok so its possible to do if the sound was like a clap? i understand it might be difficult so i could just start with the microphones.

could i just have the arduino collect the data from the mics and send it all back to a computer and have the computer do the calculating?
