Description The WAV file is one of the simplest digital audio file formats. It was originally developed back in 1991 for use within Windows 3.1 but today it is the gold standard in studio recording and one of the most popular digital audio formats. As they are stored in an uncompressed format they are enormously versatile and allow for easy editing and manipulation. One minor drawback is that the file sizes can be huge which can make them a little impractical.

Technical Details A file with the WAV file extension is a Waveform audio file format and is a container that stores data in segments. It was originally developed by Microsoft and IBM and stores uncompressed lossless audio which results in very large file sizes. The format uses containers to store the audio data, track numbers, sample rate and bit rate.

File extension .ogg
Category Audio File
Description The .ogg file format is a type of audio file that makes use of open source Ogg Vorbis compression. It is supported by devices such as Archos and Samsung but is not supported by Apple iOS devices. The .ogg format has been utilised for the provision of streaming audio. The file format is unlikely at present to take a dominant share of the digital music market due to the synonymous nature of MP3 with digital audio.

Technical Details The .ogg format is actually a container that potentially allows for different streams of audio, video and metadata. Ogg Vorbis is the compression format. It provides medium to high quality audio at between 16 and 128 kbps/channel and is better quality sound than mp3. The OGG file type is a lossy codec which means that data is discarded as part of the compression technique, resulting in a smaller file size. Ogg files are optimised for music files, but will still be of acceptable quality for speech only files.
