What is an MP3 File?
MP3 is an abbreviation of MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3. This file format compresses sound into a small amount of memory–just one-twelfth the size of standard files–to minimize the disk space you need to save vast musical collections to your hard drive. However, compressing with MP3 doesn’t sacrifice quality for the smaller file size. It’s the go-to file format for music and all audio players for Mac support its playback.
MP3 players for Mac read the compressed files, but not all audio players are made equally. Some run better MP3 software for Mac than others, giving listeners an ever better playback experience.
Because MP3 is the most widely supported audio file format, you can use any pre-installed audio player apps on macOS. However, you get a better playback experience and more listening capabilities when using a third-party app like the free MP3 player for Mac, Elmedia Player.
Elmedia Player goes beyond being a leading MP3 player for Mac and supports various audio and video file formats, like letting users play FLAC files on Mac without downloading a separate audio player or converting FLAC files into ALAC.
For all these reasons, Elmedia Player is the best choice among Mac MP3 players.
