Free MP3 Bitrate Converter – Free Change Bitrate for MP3 or other Audio
Changing MP3 bitrate is an useful way to reduce MP3 size. For example, a MP3 file at 320 kbps, the highest bitrate allowed for MP3 files, could be reduced to 192 kbps in order to significantly reduce the size of the MP3 file. You don’t need to worry about the audio quality cause that the difference would be negligible to most listeners using standard speakers or headphones. If you’re an audiophile, then in addition to having expensive audio equipment, you’re probably never going to use the MP3 format anyway.
Most likely an audiophile will be using a compressed or uncompressed lossless format like PCM Audio, WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, or APE. An uncompressed PCM audio file is about 10 times bigger than a CD quality MP3 file cause that MP3 format is a lossy format, which means audio quality is sacrificed in order to keep the relatively small size of the files. This means that when you choose MP3 format audio, you want small size and changing bitrate of MP3 can affect MP3 audio size.
