Windows Media Audio, or WMA, is a range of proprietary technologies created by Microsoft to compress audio files. WMA and WMA Pro are designed to compress audio files to a small size while retaining a high degree of fidelity. WMA Lossless can compress audio without affecting the quality, while WMA Voice is designed to compress voice recordings.
WMA is claimed to produce higher quality samples with smaller file sizes when compared to other audio compression technologies such as MP3.
