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.
By default, AIFF opens in Windows Media Player or iTunes, depending on the operating system. Other programs that open AIFF include VLC media player, Audacity, Winamp, and Elmedia Player.
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.

Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) is a digital audio file format that reduces file size via lossy compression. Its primary uses are digital TV, digital radio, and Internet streaming. It is the standard audio format for iOS, YouTube, Nintendo, and Playstation. ISO/IEC designated the AAC codec as an improvement to MP3, due its ability to compress file size more efficiently while providing quality similar to uncompressed audio.
For best results, use VLC media player to open AAC files. Alternatively, AAC also opens by default in iTunes. AAC files are ubiquitous, however, and open in many other programs and software.
Additionally, since AAC files often serve as the audio files for video games, they open on most popular gaming consoles, such as Nintendo 3DS and Playstation 4.
