How to Download and Convert Audible Books to MP3

"I want to terminate my Audible account, but I want to keep some audiobooks. Can I download or convert my Audible books to MP3? How can I achieve it? And how do I transfer audiobooks to my MP3 player?"

Listening to Audible audiobooks is good entertainment in our leisure time, but Audible books are limited in some way. The most annoying one is that though you can download Audible books for offline listening, you are limited to listening the audiobooks with the Audible app. If you locate the downloaded Audible files on your computer and put them on your MP3 player, you’ll find that they can’t play at all.

The fact is that when you download an audiobook from Audible, it’s saved as an .aa or .aax file, which couldn’t be recognized by other music players. By contrast, MP3 is the most popular audio format that is fully supported by the majority of music apps. Thus, to enjoy Audible books on a different platform or more devices, there’s a need to download Audible books in MP3 format.

However, as we mentioned above, Audible books can only be saved in AA or AAX format. There’s no direct way to download Audible books in MP3 format. As a result, we’ll have to turn to a third-party app to accomplish the task. What’s the best tool to convert Audible to MP3? When choosing the Audible to MP3 converter, we must consider many factors, such as its main functions, conversion speed, stability, system compatibility, after-sales service, etc.
