Waveform Audio (WAV) is the most-popular digital-audio format for uncompressed audio files. WAV is the result of IBM and Windows iterating a Resource Interchange File Format (RIFF). WAV files are much larger than M4A and MP3 files, making them less practical for consumer use on portable players. Their quality, however, does surpass that of M4A and MP3.

 

How to open a WAV file?

The default player for opening WAV files is Windows Media Player. Alternatively, programs such as iTunes, VLC media player, and QuickTime can also be used to open and play WAV files.

 

Due to a WAV file’s higher, uncompressed quality, they are suitable for importing into music editing, production, and manipulation programs. UltraMixer is a cross-operating-system, software program for deejaying on which WAV files work well. Elmedia Player also supports WAV files.
