Key points

  • In a sound, lossy compression can be used to filter out parts of the sound that humans cannot hear. Less data is stored which results in a smaller file.
  • Lossless sound compression compresses files by spotting patterns in the binary that represent the sound. This is unlikely to reduce the size of the file by much.
