Editors' Review

+

Depending on the source of audio files, the format may prevent some songs from working with different players, making it important to be able to convert files. Free WMA to MP3 Changer for Mac is a simple, but effective program that performs its limited functions well.

Available as freeware, Free WMA to MP3 Changer for Mac's small size allows it to install easily. There does appear to be support for the program, since it prompted for an upgrade to fix reported bugs. After a quick startup and the upgrade prompt, the program was up and running. Instructions for how to use the program were lacking, making it slightly confusing for some, less-advanced users. Although the developer writes that the program can also convert MP3 files back to WMA, the options for doing this were not apparent, which was a slight disappointment. The major buttons were large, but the graphics attached to them did not make all of their functions clear. Another drawback was the default audio quality being set at the highest option, which might not be needed for average users. The selected files converted quickly and the quality generally matched that of the originals.

Free WMA to MP3 Changer for Mac, despite its limited features, performs its tasks well, making it a viable option for those looking to convert audio files simply.

"Doesn't Work"

November 16, 2013  |  By jatt983

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 Changer 1.7

Pros

None at all.

Cons

Does not work at all. Creates multiple copies of every file inputted, then fails to convert any of them, and often crashes while doing so.

Summary

Do not download. Any review of this software that says anything positive is most likely some paid shill

"Terrible! - Didn't work at all"

October 21, 2013  |  By thebiglebrosky

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 Changer 1.7

Pros

It was free

Cons

I loaded 19 WMAs into the bay, clicked convert, and it somehow created 120 files. There were 5-6 duplicates of each original file, except each was 5 bytes and not in either WMA or MP3. Interface is so simple there was nothing I could do to get it to work. Have not been able to process a single WMA into MP3.

Summary

Complete waste of my time.

"KISS - Keep it simple ......"

May 05, 2013  |  By Autoport

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 Changer 1.7

Pros

I searched the internet for reviews of this converter. I found a lot of bad reviews but decided to download the trial anyway. The trial worked great so I went ahead and bought it. It works almost perfectly. It is much easier to use than other audio converters
www.mp3converter-mac.com

Cons

I have been in the MP3 Converter trial for a few days,
I had tried all of the freeware, begware, shareware
and nothing comes close to the functionality and the *accuracy* of the Tagging. Coupled with my subscription service , the utility names and organizes the songs neatly and conveniently and I hope these guys are around for a while and that the features continue to work. When the price dropped on special to $16, I had to jump, and the price cannot be matched by any other service. I think I will spread the word; so few utilities actually perform as promised on the interscam ... when I find a good one, I stick with it for years.

Summary

This program is simple and reliable. I've tried several similar programs but this is the easiest to use. I recently had a minor issue and the customer support was quick and effective.

"Works but.."

April 09, 2013  |  By drusavalia

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 Changer 1.7

Pros

It was a very fast download and install. The conversion was very fast as well.. it converted 25 wma files to mp3 in less than 5 minutes. And it told me exactly where it put the converted files so they were easy to find.

Cons

As one of the previous reviewers said, the program does not do anything if you have it set to convert to the highest quality. You need to drop it down to the second highest. Yes, this compromises the quality of the sound bite you are converting, but for everyday play it doesn't really matter. If you're going to use it for something fancier, then you're better off with a converter that can maintain the quality.

Summary

Overall, I'd recommend it for people who just want their files converted to mp3 files quickly and are not overly invested in super high quality.

"Is this really posted by CNET as Editor's Pick?"

April 02, 2013  |  By yaliyali55

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 Changer 1.7

Pros

None. Total Garbage.

Cons

Total Garbage as ixlatall said. It is like a university homework. And so distracting google's search result as I opted for this instead of better one(Total Video Converter Lite). I learned this time I had to read the review before download this rubbish.
I don't know the evaluation process as CNET editor's choice but if you don't have anything to write down, just don't. Otherwise your site's credibility would be tarnished.

"TOTAL GARBAGE!"

January 26, 2013  |  By ixlatall

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 Changer 1.7

Pros

A misleadingly simple interface. The simple truth is that it doesn't do a darn thing.

Cons

Waited over 3 min for the download. The misleadingly impressive interface only allowed me to select individual files rather than albums as promised. The settings had the mp3 listbox grayed out and when I converted them, 2 of the files failed and all the rest were converted to text files. A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME! There has to be better freeware out there. I recommend you explore that first before wasting your time with this like I did.

"Works really well on my MacBook Pro, free"

January 21, 2013  |  By macintogle14

 |  Version: Free WMA to MP3 Changer 1.7

Pros

Quick download and set up;
Batch convert - whole albums and several albums at once;
Can choose file to save new mp3s to (doesn't have to be source file);
Can clear the list of converted files quickly;
Works quickly and well.

Cons

Uses a lot of processor power so it's best if you don't have other programs running at the same time (I had itunes and Safari open, and my recent MacPro had the fan running like mad);
Would not convert my files at the highest quality - so I had to use second highest quality (stereo, 44100Hz, 224kbps);
The program crashed once - but after I installed the latest update there were no problems.

Summary

This seems to generally work well, I was able to batch convert over 20 albums that I had ripped from CDs and saved to my hard drive, but had never been able to moved onto my iPod. After a very quick download and set up, I was on my way. The program had no problems working in large batches, and there weren't any issues after I figured out that I needed to convert at the lower quality setting of stereo, 44100Hz, 224kbps.
