Part 1: Audio Formats Supported by MP3 Players

An MP3 player is a digital audio player or portable media player. It has a small storage medium inside it for storing a large number of audio files. But it is also often considered by many to only support MP3 format audio files because of its name. In fact, in addition to MP3 audio formats, MP3 players also support the following audio formats.

1. AAC (Advanced Audio Coding): It is an audio standard for lossy digital audio compression.

2. FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec): It is an audio file format similar to MP3, but it is lossless.

3. WAV (Waveform Audio): is an audio file format standard developed by IBM and Microsoft for storing audio bitstreams on computers.

4. OGG: It is a compressed audio file using the free, unpatented Ogg Vorbis audio compression.

5. WMA (Windows Media Audio): is a series of audio codes and their corresponding audio coding formats developed by Microsoft.

Note: If you want to know the audio format supported by your MP3 player clearly, you can check the instruction manual of the MP3 player you purchased and consult the manufacturer's after-sales technology.
