WAV to MP3 Converter

CNET Editors' review

This one-trick pony only converts your WAV files into MP3 format, but at least it's totally free. WAV to MP3 Encoder works quickly, and the interface is simple: just drag and drop files directly from Windows Explorer. However, as its name suggest, the application doesn't support other audio formats the way more comprehensive programs do. Also, though you can of course choose the bit rate of your new audio files, you won't find a VBR option. However, if you're looking for a way to compress WAV files in the MP3 format and your jukebox of choice lacks conversion skills, this application makes an acceptable, if somewhat medicore, option.

    "Does the job well"

    April 22, 2014  |   By BlakeDibbs

    Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0.9.1

    Pros

    I was initially wary of this WAV to MP3 converter but the results left no doubt in my mind about how good it was. The converter is extremely functional and you don't really miss the frills it lacks.

    Cons

    It's annoying to find there's malware.

    "No converter, just malware"

    April 20, 2014  |   By jg_perez

    Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0.9.1

    Pros

    None whatsoever. I wanted to give it no stars but that is the least CNET will allow

    Cons

    Malware: search hijacks, regcleanerpro scamware, stealth junkware -- you're not told it is being installed (my pc backup) -- the works.

    I do not know if you accept all the garbage if it will install a converter. But even accepting what seemed like the least offensive offered item, no conversion program was installed.

    Summary

    CNET needs to remove this company's products immediately. I went to the publisher's web site and tried downloading from there. Google chrome blocked this download, saying it was malware, as well as one of a program that converts many formats to mp3.

    "Now conversion is easy with this WAV to MP3 converter"

    April 17, 2014  |   By SylviaMello

    Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0.9.1

    Pros

    WAV is a great format. It is better in quality and even in higher birates, the sound quality does not give up. But, even still, MP3 format is much more popular. Small in size and it plays in almost all popular players. This converter is very efficient. It converts very quickly and the quality obtained is unquestionable. You get all this for free, unlike other worthy tools.

    Cons

    It is a great tool.

    "Useful software; provides quick and quality conversion"

    April 16, 2014  |   By YoungKilgore

    Version: WAV to MP3 Converter 1.0.9.1

    Pros

    This software is for those people who want to change the format of WAV files to MP3 format. Changing media to MP3 format is obviously advantageous since this format is popular with most music devices. The speed of conversion is good and the quality of the media remains unaffected due to the format change. The software is easy to download and use, is available free of cost and can be downloaded quickly

    Cons

    No complaints against this software; very useful
