Editors' Review

We like simple tools for simple jobs, preferably freeware, too. Such as MP3 Converter: it's a simple, free tool for converting your MP3s to the format you need to play them on your smartphone, portable player, or tablet. It converts files among the music formats most people need most often, such as ACC, WMA, OGG, and WAV. A built-in Windows Media Player lets you listen to files before you convert them and after, so it's easy to compare sound quality differences (though not always easy to hear them). MP3 Converter is compatible with Windows 8.

MP3 Converter's user interface is very simple: just a dialog with a file entry field, embedded media player, and a few buttons and check boxes. We clicked Browse and selected an MP3 from our library. We merely had to check the output format we wanted (WAV, OGG, M4A, WMA, and ACC) and press Convert to do the job. MP3 Converter claims to use the highest quality codecs, but you have no way of checking or changing them, or anything else in the way of settings or options. MP3 Converter quickly processed our file and started playing it in the built-in Windows Media Player, with very good sound quality, too; though of course your sound card and speakers or headphones will have a bigger impact on the quality of the sound you hear than the format of your MP3s, converted or not. Nevertheless, we heard nothing to suggest the program wasn't doing a fine job of converting our files. When we were satisfied with the sound, we clicked Save and saved our file to the directory of our choice. We also converted WAV files to MP3s, WMAs, and Apple-compatible AACs, in both directions, with success.

Music lovers have many options when it comes to converting their MP3s, including both freeware and premium tools. MP3 Converter definitely sticks to the easy-to-use end of the spectrum. If you need a lot of custom settings like bit rate and tag editing, MP3 Converter isn't for you. If you just want to convert some tunes to playable formats: it's got that. Browse, click, save, load, and play -- what more do you really need?

"No output file"

May 19, 2013  |  By adambr1969

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.8

Pros

Seems like a simple, easy to use program

Cons

I got a 0 byte output file. Tried to convert a few WMAs to MP3 and it failed. No error message.

Be careful on installation - asks to install a toolbar and other crud.

Summary

Doesn't work, no error message.

"Very functional"

February 01, 2013  |  By flyer25

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.8

Pros

Small, not intrusive or invasive, and every bit as simple as advertised and veviewed by Cnet.

Cons

Really couldn't find any to speak of.

Summary

I had a file to convert so it would play on a website and it made the conversion of an .mp3 to a .wav a total no brainer.

"Very easy to use mp3 converter software!!"

November 16, 2012  |  By Treverjeyes55

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.8

Pros

Fast,easy,. It has all the main functions that a regular mp3 converter would have. I successfully converted my ogg files, wav files, and wma files using this software. (I didn't try mpg,flv, aac, etc...)

Everything worked fine though and am very happy with the usefulness of this software especially seeing how its free!

Cons

Would like to see it support rar files in a future version?? Would be a good addition and I'm sure other users would agree!!

Summary

It gets 5 stars from me for the ease of use, and simplicity of it.

This is probably one of the easiest mp3 converter softwares I've ever used. Yeah It doesn't have 1000 buttons with a bunch of check boxes and other options, but it does what its supposed to do.
