Audiobooks are distributed in various audio formats including M4B, M4A, MP3, WMA, WAV, AA, AAX and some other audio formats. As iTunes Store and Amazon Audible become the biggest and main audiobook distribution channels, iTunes M4B audiobooks and Audible AA/AAX audiobooks have become the dominant audiobook format. Audiobook length varies greatly from file to file, it could be from several minutes to tens of hours. For listeners, chapter information is important because they can easily navigate and select a specific chapter and resume where they last left off.
Though there are some free M4B audiobooks available, M4B audiobooks from iTunes Store and AA/AAX audiobooks from Audible are encrypted. You can only listen to iTunes M4B audiobook on authorized PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Audible AA/AAX audiobooks can be listened on a wider range of devices including iOS devices, Android devices, Windows Phone, Kindle Fire tablets, Kindle Oasis, Sandisk MP3 players, Creative MP3 players, VictorReader Stream, BrailleNote & Apex BrailleNote, Garmin & Tom Tom GPS devices as well as PC and Mac computers, but there are still many MP3 players you can't use to enjoy AA/AAX audiobooks because Audible AA/AAX audiobooks are also encrypted. Besides, many MP3 manufactures don't have a business relationship with Audible and the manufactures can't provide a way for you to authorize the devices with your Audible account.
If you have purchased some audiobooks from iTunes Store or Audible, but your devices are not compatible with protected M4B/AA/AAX audiobooks, you still have a chance to enjoy your purchased audiobook on the devices with the help of audiobook converter. MP3 and M4A files are playable on almost any MP3 players, however, MP3 can't hold chapter information because of its own limitation while M4A supports chapters, we recommend you convert audiobooks to M4A with chapters kept.
