Audacity should do it. It's freeware.

Note that if you intend to export as mp3 at some point, you will require a plugin. I think due to legal reasons, the plugin is not supplied with the software.

Also, people have reported that the app messes with the system sounds for mac. I personally have never experienced this, and it may have been fixed within the software. The developers were aware and I believe they provided a solution and explanation of the cause. Audacity is a great program though, and comes with a whole lot of features - more than a lot of shareware (and in my experience, less stable) alternatives offer.

Sox Wrap will do this as well. You can get it at:

Sox is an open source audio format converter. Sox Wrap is the same thing with a Mac OS X "wrapper" on it. I have used it now and then on my Mac and it works well.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3
