Convert to DSS Online Tool.
A DSS file is a compressed file format. It stands for Digital Speech Standard. It was developed by programmers at International Voice Association as a way to send compressed audio files without compromising quality or playback capabilities. DSS is usually used as a way to share a compressed audio file with others, such as through email. The file type is very commonly used in the Olympus Digital Speech Standard style format. It uses 16-bit mono sound and reduces traditional WAVE files between 1/12th and 1/20th of their size. Though this would normally compromise playback quality, DSS files both reduce the file size and maintain audio quality.
