What happens when you convert a .WAV file to an .MP3 file?
A .WAV file is a bulky but high quality lossless uncompressed audio format. When you convert WAV to MP3 you are trimming out most of the audio spectrum that human ears cannot process, as well as some of the audio we can. You are also minimizing repeated data. The end result is a much smaller file that sounds almost as good as the original, in fact most non trained ears cannot even tell there has been some loss of quality. These new MP3 files are lightweight and work better on portable devices with limited storage space like flash drives, mp3 players, cell phones, and tablets.
Why Choose .MP3 Format?
When space is an issue choose MP3 format. If you are storing data on flash drives, mobile devices, or portable audio players choose mp3.
When shouldn't you use MP3's?
When audio quality is your main goal use another lossless audio format.
