    I need to convert my high bitrate MP3 files so that I can load them on my mobile phone and listen to them. This phone can play all these formats which is why I am confused that which format is best for encoding? I need best sounding files at lowest size. So please tell me which is the best format.

    Also please tell the ideal bitrate at which one should encode for listening on phones and the best and easiest software to do it.

    If you have a symbian phone, use OGG, that would provide you with the best compression ratio, with good quality.

    i believe 128 kbps is gud enugh..it also depends upon ur fone..if u ve good quality speakers like tht of SE, the u shud not go down then 128kbps..and u can use Sound Forge for coverting ur audio files to any format u wish like mp3, wav, aac, ocg...hope this helps..

    Thank you for replies.
    I have heard M4A or eAAC is best at both quality and size. Is it not right?

    ^^ OGG AoTuV is the best codec for lower bitrates. You can use dbpoweramp for conversion. There are 2 versions of OGG, the normal one and AoTuV version. AoTuV is highly tuned version. I have N70 and even 24 kbps OGG files sound extremely good! At 64 kbps you will get transparency!

    No.. Converting from a lossless format to another lossless format will only loose quality. If you have the original mp3 files, then you can compress them to OGG.

    Edit: Yeah, its lossy, not lossles :p

    I guess you mean lossy format, kalpik?
    And mp3 is again a lossy format in itself.

    ^^^ But the only problem is PowerMP3 is not available for s60v3 (OS 9.1) mobiles.

    ^^ Then install LCG Jukebox. It plays mp3 and ogg, has manual as well as preset equaliser and can also play internet radio via GPRS. Sound quality is excellent. It is available for OS 9.1.

    What would be the best format to use in a non-symbian phone? Or to be more specific, in a SE Walkman phone? I want least file size with decent quality. Is eAAC+ the best format?
