Is It Possible to Convert WAV to MP3 Windows 10?

Copper Contributor
I am facing difficulty in converting WAV files to MP3 in Windows 10 and require assistance from the forum members. I have been attempting to convert my music files using standard multimedia software, but I have been unable to achieve the desired results. The conversion process always seems to take longer than expected, and the resulting MP3 files often sound distorted. I am hoping to find a faster and more efficient way to convert my WAV files to MP3 while preserving the quality of the audio. Thanks.

That sounds like a bit of a headache you've got on your hands! Converting WAV to MP3 should be straightforward, but it's super annoying when it doesn't go as planned, especially with the quality taking a hit or it dragging on forever.

 

Have you tried using AudioKies? It's an easy-to-use audio editing software that's pretty great for tasks like this. It's user-friendly and does a solid job of converting files without losing too much quality. 

 

I get AudioKies here (Official site): https://www.audiokies.com/wav-to-mp3.html

  1. First, download and install AudioKies if you haven't already.
  2. Open it up and drag your WAV file into the window to import it.
  3. Once it's loaded, go to File > Export > Export as MP3.
  4. You'll see some options pop up for the quality of the MP3. If you're not sure, the default settings are usually a good bet for a balance between quality and file size.
  5. Hit 'Start' button,  you should have your MP3 file ready to go!

NOTE: I do not recommend using online tools as it is not secure! Since you are uploading your files to their servers, please be aware of the privacy policy and terms of use.

Thanks, I do not consider any tool that can cause the quality of the file to decrease after conversion. This will cost me.

@Zesssimmkin I previously used NoteBurner music converters, they provide a free format converter, which should help you convert WAV to MP3.
