What are the differences between an MP3, an MP4 and an iPod ? :

 Lately, it is very common to see people walking or resting listening to music from small portable players that can store hundreds of songs and thus, entertain our day.

Nevertheless, now there are many the brands and types of these devices that flood the market, this is why it is important to know what is the difference between each one of these devices, in order to be able to choose the one that suits us and to our daily activities. 

One of its type and first arriving at the market is the MP3, this is a system of compressed files in a format which clears some decibels to music, decreasing its quality, although it happens unnoticed, it can also store photos, texts and images in a very versatile way, it is very easy to use, which is why it has become very popular between the present youth, without forgetting a very important matter, which is the portability of the device, in it is possible transport information, which makes it a very important object for our daily life. 

Another device very similar to the MP3 is the MP4. This is a complex system, even more than the MP3, which improves the storage capacities as well as the quality of sound, videos and images, it can also share files by means of the USB connection, the greater difference between both systems, the MP3 and the MP4, is that the MP3 is an audio system that has been compressed but that even so, it keeps having the sound quality of a music CD-ROM, while MP4 allows increasing the storage capacities because, by means of format compression in videos and images it can store to a bigger amount of files. 

In conclusion an MP4 continues being the best player in any case, due to its great capacity and quality, but it is important to keep in mind that, when buying a player, it is better to consider the technical characteristics of the apparatus, because there are many brands in the market and one does not know for sure what is buying, which is why it is much better to be sure of what you are buying by verifying the technical specifications, because in many cases it has happened that there are MP3 players that can play videos like the MP4 but without having the characteristics of it. 

Regarding iPod, it is one of most sophisticated music players you will find in the market, they count with many characteristics, such as color screens or flash memory, they can be used just as a external hard drive and they count with touch screens, which make it easier handling the player, among its storage capacities, they might vary between 80 G, 90 G and 120 G.
