FAQ » Common » What is the difference between the uncompressed WAV format and the MP3 format? По-русски

There are several differences between the WAV and the MP3 formats.

  1. WAV is the uncompressed audio format of CD quality. This is the highest available audio quality. It is recommended for DJs, audiophiles, and listeners with high-performance audio equipment. Because of the high quality, these files are large. For example, a 5 minute audio in WAV format takes approximately 50 MB which is 5 times more than an MP3 of the same length.
  2. MP3 is a compressed format. It is recommended for collectors and regular listeners. This format has very good sound quality and a fairly small file size.

Not many can hear the difference between a WAV and an MP3 format, but the MP3 format takes 5 times less space on your hard drive than the WAV format.
