WAV vs. MP3, Which Is Better?
|Name||Waveform Audio File Format||MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3|
|Usage Scenario||Professional audio recording and the standard format for audio CD||A popular container for music and a universal format for almost all audio files|
|Pros||1. Better quality for lossless compression and higher kpbs||
1. Smaller in size due to lossy compression and lower kpbs
2. Compatible with most sites and social media like YouTube
1. Large in size
2. Usually unsupported on YouTube and other social media
|1. Lower quality compared with WAV, but not bad|
|Conclusion||To be honest, it is hard to tell which format is better. WAV is a professional container that can store uncompressed audio, so you can expect the utmost high-quality audio.|
|MP3 uses lossy compression algorithm, but it doesn't mean that it has bad quality. There is no obvious quality difference between WAV and MP3 if you aren't a musical professional or don't use elite devices to play your audio file. An MP3 file with 320kbps even boasts better quality than a compressed WAV.|
|In general, both of them are prevalent audio formats. For the sake of common use, they only differ in size. If you want to upload and share songs/recordings on websites, you'd better use MP3 instead of WAV as it is smaller in size.|
