Mp3- MPEG 1 Audio Layer 3

Mp3 stands for MPEG 1 Audio Layer 3, a technology with which audio files are digitally compressed to reduce them to a fraction of their original size – making them small enough to be easily downloadable with a broadband service.

A feature of Mp3 is that sound quality is not affected by compression and the technology is therefore particularly useful for music files.
