AMR (Adaptive Multi-Rate Audio Codec) is a sound compression format that is designed for speech coding. It is today widely used in UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) and GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications). Most modern mobile phones can save short sound recording clips in AMR format and can be converted to other standard sound formats using a third-party program like Wondershare UniConverter.

M4A is a filename extension for AAC container format and is developed by Apple Inc. M4A music is bought on the iTunes Store and does not come with DRM protection. In terms of quality, M4A is better than MP3 because it is lossless but still compressed. This means that it occupies less storage space and doesn’t lose quality over time.
