How Do I Convert My Audio File to WAV File Format

Unless you’re an audio engineer, serious music lover, a DJ, someone in similar profession or have done adequate research about the differences between the varying audio file formats, it’ll be quite difficult to be able to ‘hear’ the difference. However, there are still some very obvious and transparent distinction between an WAV file format and an MP3.

The file size of an WAV file can sometimes be up to 2 or 3 times larger than an MP3 due to its uncompressed data in nature. That also explains why and supports the higher quality of the audio file itself. An WAV file format can be copied and converted to other file formats without compromising on its’ quality as well as be listened through either types of playback medium such as on the TV, digital music player, portable devices and etc.

On the other hand, an MP3 file format is very well-known for its ‘lossy compression’. That, however, works perfectly fine if it’s for playbacks on portable devices as the file type will only use up a small storage size on your device. It’s also not advisable to playback the MP3 file in a cinema-like or theatre-size room as then the quality comparison with an WAV file will be quite evident. If you’re looking forward to a reliable WAV file converter, check out the Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate.
