The AAC is standard Apple Audio quality that always compresses the file and makes it comfortable and small in size, which results in quality loss. Whereas, Uncompressed doesn’t change anything and delivers the same quality of audio quality. Typically, uncompressed files will occupy large storage compare to AAC formatted files.

Most of the users opt to use AAC format which saves a considerable amount of space for them, and yes it gives Apple Music level quality which is good if don’t want the original quality of Voice Memos. For more natural and professional purpose uncompressed is preferable.
