Waveform Audio File (WAV) format is an audio file format developed by IBM and Microsoft. The question, "What is the difference between WAV and MP3 formats" has been asked quite often when it compared to MP3. While MP3 is a compressed file, WAV is uncompressed, which provides better quality in some circumstances. In short, a WAV file is better for editing, and an MP3 file would be great for distribution. Additionally, it is the main format used on Microsoft Windows systems for raw and typically uncompressed audio. To sum up, you can enjoy offline audio in either MP3 or WAV format, and have you ever considered how to make Tidal Music tracks in WAV format?
