I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!Tillie

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.JH

It’s my first time using it. I had some complications doing it. I’m not very good at this. But I wrote to the company and I had a lot of help. I’m satisfied with customer service and with the app.Ana Suárez
Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.Sabina Calis
Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.Jiunn-Ru Lai

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.Aron Boyette

WAV Audio Format WAV Converter
A WAV file also goes by the name of a WAVE or Waveform audio file. The WAV file is one of the oldest types of audio file in existence today and was developed by Microsoft and IBM. Despite being developed in 1991, it is still a popular file format today.
Part of the appeal of WAV files is that they’re exceptionally high quality because they are uncompressed and lossless. WAV uses PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) to encode the audio data by segmenting it into small pieces, and does so without any compression; this means the process doesn’t impact the audio quality in any way.
WAV files are used by musicians to record music, with this format providing a much richer sound than other compressed file formats. Unsurprisingly, WAV files tend to be large in size because they’ve not been compressed in any way - they are typically over ten times the size of an MP3 file.
WAV files can be opened by almost all audio programs, mainly because they’ve been around for over thirty years and because they’re so widely respected.
FLAC Audio Format FLAC Converter
An FLAC file has a full name of Free Lossless Audio Codec File and was developed by the Xiph.org foundation. An FLAC file is an open sourced audio file that uses lossless file compression which means that the file has been compressed to make it smaller but without impacting the quality of the file. i.e. it sounds the same but is smaller in size. In some circles it is known as a HD version of an MP3 file because it sounds a lot crisper than an MP3 but the way it has been built means that it tends to be a similar sized file as an MP3. It was developed in the early 2000s and given it’s size, quality and the fact it was open sourced it quickly became a popular alternative to other popular lossless audio formats which were developed at that time.
Another feature of an FLAC file is that it can support metadata and so they’re often used to burn CDs. Almost all open sourced audio players play FLAC files including the VLC Media Player. Other popular programs like QuickTime and Media Player do not play FLAC files.
