The easiest way is with soundconverter (gtk) or soundkonverter (KDE)

There are multiple software available for audio conversion. some good ones are:
rubyripper, soundjuicer, even mencoder or vlc can do the job.

I use VLC for most of the conversion issues. I find it great and simple.

What about commercial converters like this one for example - <snip> ?
Are they better than free converters?

That looks like snake oil to me. I would expect such a product to contain malware, honestly.

ffmpeg will do this nicely from the command line, and you can script to deal with batches:

ffmpeg -i input.wav output.mp3

You can add further options for sample rate, bitrate and encoder if you wish
