The mp3 is type of format for digital music that is used to create sound files of a high quality. Since the inception of the mp3, listening to music has never been the same. Perhaps the greatest attraction of the mp3 is that it is able to compress files into more versatile and convenient files.
The quality of sound in the mp3 is quite similar to the older music formats although there is no chance of skipping due to the fact that mp3s do not have moving parts.
How the mp3 Works
The mp3 compresses the music files by removing out many of the song’s sounds that the ears are incapable of hearing. The file then uses complex mathematical equations in order to further reduce the size of the files.
Due to the extent of the file’s compression, the result is a track that is approximately eleven times smaller in size than their music file predecessors.
