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.

In case you are searching for a high speed and good quality converter tool, then the Free WAV to MP3 converter is just the app. It has only a few features and so there is no confusion while using this speedy app. It can easily convert WAV format files without any glitches. It has a few customizable features.

Cons

It might try to install unwanted programs. But it can be declined easily.

"Full of malware, DO NOT DOWNLOAD!"

September 07, 2015  |  By nubsonaplane

2015-09-07 20:16:40  |  By nubsonaplane

 |  Version: Free WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0

Pros

Did convert the wav files I had to mp3s.

Cons

Filled with hijacking malware that took an entire evening to purge from my computer

Summary

I would highly recommend not downloading this particular software. You'd be better off searching somewhere else for another converting software. CNET's QA department seems to have gone by the wayside, as I remember a time when you could be rest assured in the safety of the programs they vetted. Apparently not anymore!

Updated on Sep 7, 2015

Looking through some of the reviews of the previous versions (as I should have done before downloading the bloody software to begin with), there are a TON of suspicious positive reviews either written by people who only review this company's products, or have only given this software a review. All of which give it 5 stars. Additionally, only two reviews show up for this current version, both of which are positive.

My comment about CNET's QA has been solidified even further. Clean up your act and get this garbage off your website!

"Useless, Even Without the Adware"

August 02, 2015

2015-08-02 16:12:28

 |  Version: Free WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0

Pros

- Perhaps it can convert 1 file at a time.
- Adware isn't too hard to skip (just click "decline" at all the adware offers in the install box).

Cons

- Can't convert multiple files.
- Much worse than online websites.

Summary

Just a useless piece of adware. I eventually succeeded in finding a good converter, which I recommend you use before downloading this junk: https://online-audio-converter.com/
