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, whereas MP4 can store both video and audio. What’s more, M4A files are compressed using the ‘AAC’ lossy, which gives them a smaller file size than MP4.
WAV files store audio content "without" any compression. This makes them much larger than other file types. Although WAV files can take lots of space to store, they also store audio in high quality. This makes them useful for heavy-use audio storage like professional music recording. WAV files are widely used and can be opened on Windows Media Player, QuickTime Player, VLC, and many more. (The only exception is Linux). WAV files may also appear as ‘WAVE’ in your folder. They are the same file type, just spelt differently. Developed jointly by Microsoft and IBM, the WAV format stores audio data, track numbers, sample rate and bit rate. Content is stored in segments of uncompressed "chunks".
