AAC to MP3

Convert AAC to MP3 and other video formats to AAC online, free


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).


MP3 is the most popular audio storage format in use today. MP3 files typically store songs, music and recordings. Unlike other formats, MP3 stores audio in a much smaller file size to save device memory. It remains one of the most widely supported file formats and can be played on virtually all media players on all devices. The quality of an MP3 file can vary, because it depends on the "bit rate" used for compression. Common bit rates are 128, 192 and 256 kbps. Check your file specification for more information.

AAC is a file compression format, whilst M4A is a file extension. You can therefore have a file that is compressed in the AAC format but saved with the m4a extension. This doesn’t change the file type or separate the file into two, it just marks the two different components of a file.
AAC and MP3 both use compression to store audio, but AAC uses a stronger compression algorithm that reduces size without losing quality. The AAC compression removes sounds that aren’t audible to the human ear, which makes it sound cleaner than other audio file types.
AAC files have better sound quality than MP3 due to performance improvements made in the last few years. Although, in most cases, you may not hear the difference. So don’t stress if the sound quality isn’t as good as you want it to be!
