What Benefits You Can Get from Epubor Audible Converter
This tool exists for one purpose: get you DRM-free Audible books. By converting the purchased books to normal audiobooks, you can break free from Amazon Audible.
- Allows you to import AAX, AA Audible books and convert them to MP3/M4B
In 2020, Audible abandoned the old AA format. Now you can only download AAX books from Audible. AAX audiobook file has better quality but at the same time the file size has also become larger. If you prefer the AA format and have some books in this format, Epubor Audible Converter is still gonna work very well.
MP3 and M4B are two optional output formats of this software. MP3 is the most widely accepted audio format, but M4B also has its own advantages. M4B audiobook files can carry more information including chapters. If you convert AAX to M4B, all the chapter info will be kept.

It’s easy to use. You can add Audible books in batch, and convert the books in batch too. The conversion speed is super fast.

The simplest way to open the output folder is to click on the Folder icon in the lower right corner. The default path is C:\Users\UserName\EpuborAudible. To change the path, just go to “Settings” > “Output”, and then set another source location.
- What if I encounter problems during use… or want to refund?
Live chat, Ticket, and Email are three different ways to get connected with Epubor Support if you face problems. But don’t expect too much from its “live chat” to reply to you immediately. I personally recommend ticket or email. You can essentially get a response in 1-2 days.
If you dislike the software, according to their current refund policy, they have 30 days unconditional refund. But to reduce unnecessary time spent, it will be best to test the free trial before you pay for it. That’s what the free trial is made for.
