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.
