hm. Did you want mp32wav or wav2mp3? -w, AFAIK, creates wav files from mp3

With lame, you could do something like

for i in *.wav; do
lame $i

Have you looked at ogg? It is a better format (smaller files, better quality)
and it's free, and there are players for most (all?) environments. oggenc can
also handle multiple input files.
