Editors' Review

+

Free WAV to MP3 Converter generates MP3 versions of your WAV files intuitively. This free utility comes with just a handful of options and no support for other types of conversions. On the plus side, the conversion process is quite speedy, albeit buggy, if you try to convert too many files at once.

Pros

Seamless interface: Thanks to its intuitive toolbar, Free WAV to MP3 Converter is very easy to use. The only downside is the lack of drag-and-drop integration.

Fast: We were impressed by the speed at which the app converted our WAV files -- a group of six WAV files totaling 12MB were converted in less than six seconds.

Multiple bit rate options: From the software's options you can set a custom bit rate for your output media. The available bit rates range from 46kbit/s to 320kbit/s.

Cons

Unstable: When we stress-tested the app, we discovered that it crashes if you load a large number of files and press Start.

Single-purpose app: The software handles only one type of audio conversion -- WAV to MP3. There isn't even an option for an MP3 to WAV conversion.

Bottom Line

Free WAV to MP3 Converter is perfect for those who need to convert their WAV recordings into MP3 files. Due to its very constrained nature, however, this software will be useless to anyone else. If you do decide to use it, make sure you convert your music in small batches in order to avoid app crashes.
