M4A Audio Format M4A Converter
An M4A file format is also called an MPEG-4 audio file, and is an audio file saved in the MPEG-4 standard. It was developed by Apple, largely as a result of the popularity of the MP3 file. An M4A file is the go-to audio format for compressed audio, due to the creation and popularity of iTunes.
M4A files tend to be encoded using an AAC codec and are small in size because they have been compressed - often providing a smaller file-size footprint than an MP3 file format, while mirroring, if not improving, the quality of an MP3 file. As more and more music was consumed on the go via devices such as iPods and smartphones, the need for small file sizes became greater, which is why an M4A file has grown in popularity and importance.
One downside of an M4A file, especially when compared to an MP3 format, is that it can only be opened by iTunes or Windows Media Player version 12 and later. By comparison, an MP3 file is universally supported.
WAV Audio Format WAV Converter
The WAV audio file format was developed by IBM and Microsoft in 1991. WAV stands for Waveform Audio File Format, and it is still a commonly used file type. You can open WAV files with almost all media players and devices because it’s such an established format.
Unlike many other popular audio formats like MP3 or AAC, WAV files are uncompressed and ‘lossless’. This means WAV files have higher sound quality, which is why many musicians prefer to record and play music in WAV format. However, because the files aren’t compressed, the downside is that WAV files can be much bigger than other audio formats – up to 10 times the file size of an MP3. Most users choose to keep their digital music in MP3 or AAC format as they can store more music on their device. MP3 and AAC are also the default formats for many media players.
