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?

"Doesn't work"

May 12, 2014  |  By md00bm

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

Pros

Nothing has been good about this program.

Cons

It never works. It installed several toolbars on my computer even though I declined the offers in the installer. Slowed down my computer and the toolbars are next to impossible to uninstall. Absolute garbage.

Summary

Don't install this program. There are plenty of other programs available that do the same thing and won't mess up your computer.

"Worthless, waste of time."

February 11, 2014  |  By heynickmail

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

Pros

Seems to manage to spit out an mp3 after you finally get everything worked out.

Cons

Can't drag files onto it. You have to add them one at a time or an entire folder at once. Then when you try to remove items you don't want to convert, it instead removes random files.

Every time you run the conversion it resets back to WAV at medium quality. So if you are doing a few different folders you have to remember to fix all of these settings every time.

Finally, the converted file has no tags. Even though I was converting from one file type that supports tags to another, the tags did not carry over. Complete waste of time.

Summary

Impossible to use. Don't even bother. I can't even figure out how someone could make such an awful program.

"Needs more configuration / remove crapware"

January 12, 2014  |  By IainPurdie

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

Pros

Nothing, really.

Cons

Can't automatically rename files/folders based on tags.
Can't control bit rate of conversion (only sample size and rate).
Tries to install *five* bits of crapware during installation. Seriously? Is this down to C-Net or the authors? Either way, STOP IT.

Summary

There are better converters out there than this one, and from sources that don't try to litter your system with crapware.

"BEWARE! finally had to do a system restore to get rid."

December 15, 2013  |  By jillydub

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

Pros

didn't leave it on my computer long enough to try it.

Cons

4 or 5 other spam apps that come with it when you download. obnoxious redirect pages every time you open a new tab in your browser. ANNOYING.

Summary

save yourself the hassle and just pay for a download that isn't full of advertising junk apps.

"Excellent Mp3 Converter"

November 18, 2013  |  By Audiecee

 |  Version: MP3 Converter 1.9

Pros

1st of all, the conversion process was a lot faster than I thought it be, and the gui was extremely easy to understand. 2nd it worked on windows 7 smoothly (I had trouble with some other mp3 converters here on cnet) so that was good. 3rd, the main job of converting my m4a sound files to mp3 was done with no problems. No errors or anything.

Cons

The bitrate option could of been a bit more customizable in my eyes.

Quick and easy install there was no restarting of the computer necessary. Would definitely qualify on the easy to use spectrum. Works as advertised. Converted a couple of flv videos that I ripped from youtube to the mp3 format (for my samsung galaxy running the android operating system.) IT'S FREE

Cons

I have none

Summary

I recommend it to all users needing to convert from flv to mp3. Works flawlessly, fast conversion process, also good quality output files.
