What is M4A file?

The files that come with the .M4A extension comprises of the files that are useful in storing audio files. Such files are encoded using the MPEG4 Part 14 file format.  Apple has developed the .M4A file extension. It is much like the .MP4 and .MOV formats, except that the .M4A extension does not support any video data.

Just as the Mp3 files, the .M4A file extensions are zipped, but the zipped technology used to generate the .M4A files lead to superior sound quality. The file compression is useful to make the files less in size and more manageable.
