You can use a graphical tool, such as FFAudioConverter, which can be installed to Linux using Flatpak or Windows.
I tried the above and many other commands, but kept having a problem with VLC reporting incorrect and also constant changing of the length of an audio track. I did not experience this problem with FFAudioConverter.
Using the tool is very simple. Just open the application, then drag and drop a file, selected files, or a directory into the application. Verify the settings are configured for your desired output, then click Convert.
