Convert 3GA to AIFF online, for free.
The 3rd Generation Audio (3GA) file format is the audio stream portion of a 3GPP multimedia container, and it is designed for 3G Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) mobile networks. Because 3GA files are heavily compressed and focused on narrowband signals, they are not suitable for music files.
By default, 3GA files open in VLC media player and QuickTime for Mac. 3GA files also open in the voice recorder applications of most mobile phones. Because it is common to use 3GA files for MMS messaging, most 3G mobile devices can open them.
Other programs that can open 3GA files include, Media Player Classic, RealPlayer, and MPlayer. If opening a 3GA file is problematic, then rename the file to include the extension “3GP” and try to open it again.

Apple developed Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) to store high-quality, digital-audio (waveform) data. Many professionals use it, particularly users of Apple platforms. It is lossless, which means there is no loss of quality or data from the original, but this also means that AIFF files take up more space. AIFF can locate loop point data and musical notes, which is useful for musicians.
Please note that if using an Android or non-Apple device, you will need to convert the AIFF file—likely to a MP3 file—in order to open it. Mobile Apple products open AIFF files without file conversion.
