DescriptionWAV files were developed in 1991 by Microsoft and IBM, and they are still popular today. WAV files are high quality because they are uncompressed and lossless. WAV files use PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) to encode audio data. PCM is a method of digital recording that uses a stream of pulses to represent audio waveforms. WAV files can be played on Windows and Mac computers, as well as on most smartphones and MP3 players. WAV files are also popular for use in professional audio applications, such as recording studios and video editing suites.
Technical detailsWav files are the standard Windows digital audio format. Wav files can be recorded in 8 and 16 bits per sample at sampling rates of 11.025 Hz, 22.050 Hz and 44.100 Hz. The Wav file format is a very popular audio file format for storing CD-quality sound files. Wav files are often used to store music on computers. The Wav file format is also popular for storing sounds recorded from various sources such as microphones, TVs, digital cameras, and so on. Wav files are also commonly used for creating ringtones for mobile phones. Wav files can be played on Windows Media Player and other media player software. Wav files can also be converted to other audio formats such as MP3, WMA, and AAC.

File Extensions.MP3
DescriptionMP3 files are digital audio files that are encoded using the MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III format. MP3 files are much smaller than traditional audio files, yet they maintain an acceptable level of sound quality. MP3 files are popular because they are easy to store and share, and they can be played on a variety of digital devices. MP3 files are also ideal for streaming audio over the internet, due to their small file size. While MP3 files have many advantages, they do have some disadvantages. For example, MP3 files can be damaged or corrupted more easily than traditional audio files. In addition, MP3 files can be susceptible to software and hardware compatibility issues.
Technical detailsMP3 files are created using a process called lossy compression, which greatly reduces the amount of data required to represent the audio recording. MP3 files are typically 1/11 the size of the CD file created from the original audio source, yet still sound like a faithful reproduction of the uncompressed audio. MP3 files are popular because they can be played on a variety of devices and take up less storage space than uncompressed audio files. However, some audiophiles argue that MP3 files sound worse than uncompressed audio files because MP3 files discard some of the original audio data in order to achieve smaller file sizes. Whether or not MP3 files sound better or worse than uncompressed audio files is largely a matter of personal preference.
