Is WAV or MP3 a better quality? In general, WAV files are of better quality than MP3 files, but this is not always the case if the WAV file has been compressed. A lossless WAV file is always best for recording and transferring high-quality audio files. MP3 files are not bad quality, but WAV is more elite.

Quality judgement. Spotify gets first place for music quality, both in terms of audio quality and the level of artists on the platform.
