M4A to WAV: Convert M4A to WAV on Windows & Mac

By Lois Green, Wednesday, August 06, 2015

The Reason to Convert M4A to WAV

Some people think that M4A is intended as the successor to MP3 since M4A has better quality but smaller size than MP3. As an iPhone user, I'm looking forward the day if Apple can increase the compatibility of M4A at the same time since the poor compatibility of M4A caused a lot of troubles for me.

I can't play the music purchased from iTunes store and the voice memos I recorded on Android and PSP, because they are all in M4A format. Also, I can't edit these M4A files in some popular auditors like Audacity and Wavosaur.

To increase the compatibility of M4A, I decided to convert M4A to WAV, which can be played on Android, Blackberry, Windows Media Player, PS3, PSP, Creative Zen, etc. and edited perfectly in Audacity, Wavosaur.
