AIFF: a high-quality audio file
This format first emerged in the late 1980s as a development of Apples specialists. It is a standardized format for storing audio data. AIFF files are not compressed, which is why they are larger than mp3. The audio file contains samples and loop information. It is most often used by qualified musicians who need high-quality sound. One minute of audio in the AIFF format requires 10 megabytes of disk space. The encoding process excludes data loss, which makes this format similar to WAV.
MP3 (more specifically, MPEG-1/2/2.5 Layer 3; but not MPEG-3)
A standardized file for storing audio information. Supported by virtually all music players and playable on almost all mobile devices. When the audio data is compressed, the sound quality decreases, albeit insignificantly. The compression process erases the frequency that is imperceivable to the human ear. This format allows you to save storage space. You can store and send the audio files after compression. The MP3 format was developed by the German company Fraunhofer IIS. The user can adjust the compression ratio and the audio file quality.
