WAV

"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"

FLAC

FLAC files cannot be opened on most Mac, iOS or Android devices. FLACs usually require plugins or conversions before you can open them without trouble. If you still want to open a FLAC file, then download VLC Media player on your device, or convert it to a more compatible format like MP3. However, FLAC still offers great quality audio, because its compression doesn't rob it of its quality. The FLAC compression reduces file size by over half, making it easy to store in your device or share over the internet. FLAC is an open-source and lossless compression format. Its full name is "Free Lossless Audio Codec".
