Short Name MP3
Full Name MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III
Category Audio file
Pros Accepted extensively by all. Practically all hardware audio players and gadgets support it. Very high rates of compression offered. Can be decoded pretty fast, and in a more sophisticated manner. An ISO standard that is part of the MPEG specifications. Anyone can put their own version together with the available demo sources. The licensing requiremnets are relaxed. It provides support to multichannel files.
Cons Performance and efficiency are lower than current codecs. The maximum bitrate (320kbps) isn't always enough.There are no multichannel implementations available yet. Incompatible with high-definition audio (sampling rates higher than 48kHz). Causes increase in music piracy due to greater availability and ease of use.
Basic Information An MP3 File format is a compressed audio file that uses "Layer 3" audio compression. It was produced by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) (MP3). Audio recordings, podcasts, soundtracks, sermons, audiobooks, lectures, etc are all widely stored as MP3 files.
Detailed Information MPEG released the MP3 format in 1993, after developing it in the early 1990s. It could condense audio to a fraction of the size of other common audio file types at the time (about 1/10 the size of an uncompressed.WAV or.AIF file). So, this format quickly became the standard for storing music and rose above the other existing ones. At that time, computers provided very less storage space. So, the deveopment of the MP3 format was a very critical event. Currently, MP3 is the most used audio file format. The file size of a multimedia file can be greatly decreased with MPEG compression, with minimal detectable loss in quality. This improves the efficiency of file transfers over the Internet. In the 1990s and 2000s, MP3 technology revolutionized the concept of recorded music streaming by allowing people to more simply and quickly download music from the internet.

Short Name M4A
Full Name MPEG-4 Audio File
Category Audio file
Pros Although the M4A file is compressed, the quality remains unchanged. The fact that M4A audio files are not protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) means they can be modified and transmitted more freely.
Cons M4A is a file format that is well-known in Apple's iTunes, iPod, and other devices. However, as compared to MP3 files, M4A audio playback is problematic due to its lack of compatibility with other devices.
Basic Information An M4A file is an MPEG-4 audio file that has been encoded with either the Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) or Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). It may hold a variety of audio files, including songs, podcasts, and audiobooks.
Detailed Information MPEG-4 is a multimedia container format for audio and video data that is compressed. .MP4 files, which store audio and video data, use this format. The.m4a suffix, which stands for "MPEG-4 Audio," was created since M4A files exclusively carry audio data. This naming change made it easier to tell the difference between MPEG-4 video and MPEG-4 audio-only files. There is a lossy compression option, like with other audio file types, and it is achieved using AAC encoding. The Apple Lossless format allows for lossless compression, which is not achievable with other audio formats.

Short Name WAV
Full Name WAVE Audio File
Category Audio file
Pros Almost all Windows applications that support sound can play it. Decoding in a hurry.
Cons The file size is extremely huge.
Basic Information Microsoft created the WAV file format for audio files. It is now referred to be a standard PC audio file format due to its widespread use. WAV is the file extension that identifies a Wave file (.wav). The Wave file format, which is largely used on PCs, has been approved as a legitimate exchange medium for other computer platforms, including Macintosh.
Detailed Information A WAV file is an audio file saved in the WAVE format, which is a common digital audio file format for waveform data storage. WAV files can include audio recordings with a variety of sampling rates and bitrates, although they are most commonly saved in the 44.1 kHz, 16-bit stereo format, which is the standard for CD audio. This lets content creators to easily move audio files between platforms, for example, for processing. This lets content creators to easily move audio files between platforms, for example, for processing. Sounds like effects, music, and voice recordings can be found in them. WAV files can be opened and played by multimedia players such as Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and others. The WAVE format is based on the Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF), which is mostly used to save video and audio files. In the early 1990s, Microsoft and IBM collaborated to create the WAVE format, which became the standard for storing raw, uncompressed audio in Microsoft Windows.

Short Name OPUS
Full Name Opus Audio File
Category Audio file
Pros Allows for faster data transmission via several channels. Sound quality tests reveal that it restores the original sound more efficiently at various bitrates and sampling rates. Ensures consistent performance in a variety of situations. A future-oriented structure for numerous telecom services. Adaptive to the sound information type. Can partially compensate for quality losses during transmission, allowing for continuous live data transfer with no interruptions.
Cons Not supported by multiple applications. Opus codec are uncommon.
Basic Information Opus is a new codec produced by a team of experts from the Xiph.Org Foundation (Mozilla Corporation) and Skype Technologies S.A. (Microsoft). It has all of the advantages of MP3 while minimising its flaws. Opus combines the codecs CELT and SILK.
Detailed Information An OPUS file is a lossy audio file created in the Opus format (sometimes known as "Ogg Opus"), which was designed for Internet streaming. It supports varying bit rates from 6 kb/s to 510 kb/s and employs both SILK (used by Skype) and CELT (from Xiph.Org) codecs. Voice over IP (VoIP), video conferencing, and in-game chat all employ the Opus codec. The IETF defined the Opus format, which is widely used. The IETF standardised the Opus format, which is maintained by Xiph.Org. Because the Opus codec is mostly used for streaming, files with the.opus extension are uncommon.

Short Name AAC
Full Name Advanced Audio Coding File
Category Audio file
Pros Nowadays, more devices are aware of AAC. Encoded file sizes are less. The goal of standardisation has been met. Sound quality is superior to MP3. The product is widely available. Streaming Bandwidth is Limited. Compatibility with a wide range of devices. A wide range of encoding options are available.
Cons It takes a long time to encode. During the encoding process, the CPU is heavily used. During decoding, the CPU usage is slightly higher. File Organization Has Become More Complicated. Even though it's less, it's still a loser. Hardware Support is limited. Tagging Files Isn't Always Compatible. It Might Be Too Expensive to Encode AAC from Lossless Original Files. MP3 is still considered more "standard" than AAC.
Basic Information For audio coding at medium to high bit rates, AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is the logical successor to MP3 (ISO/MPEG Audio Layer-3) (ISO/MPEG Audio Layer-3). This compressed audio format is comparable to an MP3 file, however it has a few performance advantages. Higher coding efficiency for both stable and transient signals, a smaller filter bank, and improved handling of frequencies beyond 16 kHz are just a few examples.
Detailed Information Apple iTunes and the iTunes Music Store employ Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) as the default encoding. The AAC algorithm's concept is to use two basic coding schemes to drastically minimise the amount of data required to transmit high-quality digital audio. AAC files have more sample frequencies than MP3 files, as well as up to 48 channels, superior coding and filter bank efficiency, and better transient signal coding accuracy. AAC files, like MP3 files, remove audio frequencies that the human ear cannot process, resulting in smaller, more manageable files. AAC files are substantially less than MP3 files in terms of file space.
