That's seems silly.  Why convert it to wav first?  Why not convert directly to

ffmpeg -i example.ogg to example.mp3

or whatever the command would be.

Anyway, it's double lossy whatever you do, and maybe even worse if you
go the roundabout wav route (though I don't really know, but you can't
fool mother nature).

Or maybe my understanding is shaky you'll illuminate me.
