All the sound effects and SFX Pack on GfxSounds are available in “.MP3” and “.WAV” formats.

The original sample size/sample rate are WAV = 48 kHz/16 bit, MP3 = 320 Kbps.

A WAV file is a raw audio format created by Microsoft and IBM. This format uses containers to store audio data, sample rates, and bitrates. It is an accurate, lossless format and the quality remains the same as the original recording.

MP3 or MPEG Layer 3 is a digital audio format developed by the Moving Picture Expert Group. The main goal behind the development of MP3 was to replicate CD-quality with no perceivable difference at a much smaller size.

The biggest difference is that MP3s are compressed audio and WAV files are uncompressed audio. WAV has the highest quality but it has also a greater file size than MP3.
