How to Convert AAC to MP3

Is AAC music playable on your music player?

iTunes provides very popular music service for Apple users. MP3 and AAC are two formats of the music you bought from iTunes store. However, it is not so convenient if you want to play the AAC music on other non-Apple devices as AAC is not very popular and compatible format. It would be more troublesome if the music you purchased is before 2009. That's because before 2009, all music and videos in iTunes store was protected by DRM (digital rights management). They are not allowed to be played on non-Apple devices even the format is supported. After 2009, Apple revoked DRM protection on iTunes files, which is a humanized consideration for iTunes users. But still, you need to convert the AAC file to MP3 or other popular formats before copy it to other devices. A commonly adopted method is to use a third-party converter to fulfill this. Here let's explore together how to convert AAC to MP3 with Aiseesoft Audio Converter.

About AAC and MP3

AAC, a lossy compression format, provides high sound quality with less file size. Under the same biting rate, AAC format has better tone quality. Besides, AAC supports multi-channel while MP3 supports two channels. We can say that AAC is a very comprehensive audio format. On the one hand, features of multi-channel and high biting rate make it very suit for DVD audio, on the other hand, high sound quality under low biting rate makes it fit mobile communication, internet telephony and online radio, etc. I think the main reason we convert AAC to MP3 is the extensive applicability of the latter format.
