MP3 vs M4A
MP3 file type is primarily associated with MPEG Audio Stream, Layer III which is an audio-specific format that was designed by the Moving Picture Experts Group as part of its MPEG-1 standard and later extended in MPEG-2 standard.
M4A file type is primarily associated with 'MPEG-4 Audio Layer'. Files in .M4A format are actually the audio layer of (non-video) MPEG 4 movies.
1: M4a is actually an audio-only Mpeg-4 compression file.
2: M4a is developed to have better audio quality in a lesser space than the mp3.
3: Obviously, mp3 remains to become more popular of audio formats including the lesser known m4a.
4: Mp3 was the first to come out and m4a was partly developed to actually take away mp3′s throne as the most popular audio format.
5: Mp3 had reached the distinction that it can be played anywhere, with almost any playback device while m4a has not reached that point just yet.
