AAC

AAC files are used for storing audio and music data in a higher quality. Due to improvements made to the AAC file, it has one-off the best sound qualities amongst audio file formats. AAC is also the default format for Apple's iTunes and iTunes Store. You can open AAC files on iTunes, Windows Media Player and VLC Media Player. Although AAC files can use the .aac extension, many AAC files are saved with the .m4a extension. This doesn't change the file type, but only the extension format. You can still open it as an AAC file, because AAC refers to the compression type. Its full name is 'Advanced Audio Coding' (AAC).

M4A

Audio files with the M4A extension are mostly used for storing songs purchased from the iTunes Store. M4A files are widely accepted by Apple, Android and Windows devices. Most media players on all devices can play M4A files. This makes them a popular format for storing songs on mobile devices. Although M4A and MP4 files are similar, they are not the same. They both use the MPEG4 codec, but M4A files can only store audio content. What’s more, M4A files are compressed using the ‘AAC’ lossy, which gives them a smaller file size than MP4.

Yes, in the sense that they can refer to the same file, but not always. See, whilst M4A is a container format, AAC is an encoding format. They play different roles; M4A acts like the file’s container or extension. AAC, on the other hand, is the algorithm that encodes and compresses the data in the file. An AAC file can still use the M4A extension, and most AAC files already do. But not all AAC files use the M4A extension, and not all M4A files are encoded in the. AAC format.
The truth is, they can’t really be compared. It’s widely accepted that AAC is a great encoding format with superior sound quality. But M4A is only an extension format, so its quality will depend on which encoding format it uses. Not all M4A files are encoded with AAC, because many may use ALAC or other formats for encoding. If the M4A file is encoded as AAC, then its quality would be great. If it is encoded with a low-quality format, then its quality may not be as great.
