AAC and MP3 are lossy file formats. When you create MP3 and AAC compressing files, the AAC tends to be smaller than the MP3 format, and AAC is slightly more efficient and sounds better. If your storage space is limited, using AAC to store music will save a lot of storage space.

FLAC is a high-resolution lossless audio format. FLAC files are uncompressed and thus retain all audio data during the encoding process. It is considered the preferred format for downloading and storing hi-res albums. Compared with AAC and MP3, the FLAC format takes up much more room. A FLAC file is 5 times larger than MP3.
