mp3 to aac for mobile phonesMost people find AAC the best solution used to compress music to listen to it on mobile phones. Others say that AAC sounds awfully compared to MP3. Let's make things clear.

First, there are two particular things about music files to be played on mobile phones. One is that the files must be as small as possible (the smaller can you squash your music files before they become noticeably affected on playback, the more you can fit onto your memory cards). The other is that you don't expect very high quality from this mobile music.

MP3 files would be excellent but for their size. Here comes AAC. It introduces new advanced ways of compressing audio wave data algorithms. It's advantage is that AAC files are of smaller size but of comparatively good quality (we are speaking about music for mobile phones. If you want to enjoy stereo and phasing effects and lots of pure waveforms, you'd better use flac or ogg). Just look: 128kbps mp3 = 96kbps AAC without little noticeable loss of quality, and the file will be 600kb ~ 750kb smaller in size. If you convert 192kbps MP3 to AAC the target file will be of 96kbps with tiny loss of sound quality, but HALF of the mp3 file size.

Still there are people who like the sound of AAC files more than of mp3's and those who hate listening to AAC whatever small the files are. That's a matter of taste. But most often people convert MP3 to AAC as a happy medium that allows reasonable quality audio playback and the filesize small enough to allow room for more files on memory cards. A good tool for converting old MP3 to smaller AAC files to put on mobile phones is Total Audio Converter. Now you can convert any song to another size, convert chanels (stereo to mono), change bitrate or frequancy most easily. It is the fastest and most affordable solution currently available on the market.
