FLAC -- Free Lossless Audio Codec

FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is a lossless musical file format that offers bit-perfect copies of CDs except at half the size. FLAC is similar to MP3, but lossless, meaning that audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in quality; the quality of the FLAC file can be as excellent as CD Quality. Even though FLAC is still not so common to see on a default music player, but it is increasingly becoming more and more popular. Now, FLAC is compatible with many devices: computers, smartphones (including the iPhone -- with an app), portable music players (PMP) and hi-fi components.
