Introduction to Audio File Formats
An audio file is a digital file that can be played on a computer and contains audio data. The audio coding format, which describes how the audio data is set up in the file, can be either uncompressed or compressed using a technique called lossy compression to reduce the file size. The audio data may be kept as a raw bitstream in the audio coding format or it may be kept in a different kind of file known as an audio data format or container format.
Lossless and lossy audio file formats can be separated into two primary groups. While lossy formats make some quality sacrifices to obtain reduced file sizes, lossless formats can store audio data without any loss of quality.

3. MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer III)
MP3 format is a lossy audio format that was developed in the 1990s. It has become one of the most popular formats for storing and sharing music due to its small file size and good quality. MP3 is a compressed format, which means that it sacrifices some of the audio quality to achieve smaller file sizes.
4. AAC (Advanced Audio Coding)
AAC is a lossy audio format developed by Apple Inc. as an improvement over MP3. It is widely used for storing and streaming music and has better quality than MP3 at similar bitrates. AAC is used by Apple’s iTunes store and is the default audio format for Apple’s iPhone and iPad.
5. OGG (Ogg Vorbis)
OGG is a lossy audio format developed as an open-source alternative to MP3 and AAC. It is widely supported on many devices and is popular for storing and streaming music. OGG has good quality at lower bitrates and is often used for internet radio.
6. FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec)
FLAC is a lossless audio format that is popular among audiophiles for its high quality and small file size. It is an open-source format and is supported by many devices, although not as widely as MP3 or AAC.
