FLAC ( Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a compressed audio format which maintains the same quality as the original audio, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality. FLAC offers true CD quality but only requires less than 50 percent of the original file size. FLAC first emerged in 2001 as an open-source alternative to other lossless formats like ALAC, WAV, WMA and more. It not only supports tags (artist, album name, lyrics, etc.) but also is compatible with many different types of equipment.

MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3) is a standard kind of audio coding format that uses psychoacoustic modeling to reduce the size of audio files by up to 90%, which makes it a very convenient, versatile and popular way to store music. It is one of the most common music formats. What's more, MP3 is a lossy format, which means the audio data and quality will lose to reduce the file size to a more compact level.
