FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is famous for its lossless music format, namely the audio quality is the same as the original source. Since it is compressed, it takes up less space. It is also an open and free source. However, FLAC files are not supported by most of popular devices, that is because FLAC files always have very high bit rate and different coding system.


AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) was actually created as a superior lossy format. But AAC achieves better sound quality than MP3 at lower bit rate. Usually, a 256kbps AAC sounds better than a 320kbps MP3. Compared to FLAC, AAC will have wider compatibility and less file size.
