FXBear Audio Converter looks almost exactly like Audio Commander, which made into our top five in the audio converter software review. Unfortunately, FXBear isn’t completely similar to Audio Commander; in fact, it’s got fewer compatible formats, fewer features and worse tech support.

FXBear will convert the most common types of audio files, like MP3, WMA, WAV, OGG and even AAC. It converts 13 types of audio files in all, and we found during testing that the program often had problems with WAV files, which is troublesome because WAV is so common.

FXBear won’t be able to get audio from a CD or a video file. And besides an email support function, you won’t be able to get much information or help with FXBear either.

FXBear is serviceable, but not worth it when so many other programs do it better.
