"As a music lover, I like to listen to music in WAV format for an enjoyable listening experience. But only a few WAV files can fill up my MP3 player as WAV files have the high requirement for space. Is it possible that all my audio files are as high-quality as WAV files but have much less size?" Some of my friends have complained to me about that. Have you ever met that problem too? Actually, FLAC files can totally meet the requirement. But how to convert WAV to FLAC format easily? The best free solution to convert is using VideoSolo Free Video Converter.
Part 1. WAV VS FLAC
Before comparing WAV with FLAC, I will give you brief introductions of the two audio formats.
What is WAV?
WAV format (short for Waveform Audio File Format) is a Microsoft and IBM audio file format standard for storing an audio bitstream on computers. It is a commonly used file format for retaining files of high quality. However, WAV files are uncompressed, so they are larger than compressed files.
What is FLAC?
FLAC format (short for Free Lossless Audio Codec), which designed specifically for efficient packing of audio data, is one of the most widely supported lossless audio formats. Audio sources encoded to FLAC are typically reduced to 50–60% of their original size. Besides, FLAC has support for metadata tagging, album cover art, and fast seeking. But FLAC files can't be added any copy prevention methods or support lossy compression.
In conclusion, both WAV and FLAC have advantages and disadvantages. But obviously, FLAC is ideal than WAV if you want to listen to music on portable players, home stereo equipment or car stereo. Then how to convert WAV to FLAC easily and quickly?
