Posted by on .

It is universally acknowledged that Amazon is very successful in the commercial arena when it comes to eBook and audiobook selling. Although Google Play started to enter into rivalry of audiobook market in January 2018, Amazon Audible still pulls ahead of its contenders. Audiobooks downloaded from Audible.com are in the Amazon proprietary format AAX or AA. The Audible audiobooks are locked by DRM which prevents you from sharing your purchased audiobooks with your friends. Moreover, the DRMed audiobook are confined to be played on selected Audible supported players or devices, so you can’t transfer them among multiple platforms and devices. Given the above situation, it’s imperative to remove Audible DRM and convert their formats to a universal audio format such as mp3, wma, wac, etc.

In our previous articles Ultimate Way to Remove Audible DRM and Convert Audible adh to mp3, we’ve illustrated how to remove DRM from Audible audiobooks downloaded from Audible.com website and Kindle eInk devices. Well, for Android users, I’ll elaborate how to remove Audible DRM from the audiobooks downloaded via Android devices in this article.

We’ve tested that all the audiobooks downloaded via Audible app on Android devices are in AAX formats.

Then go back to the program, navigate to the bottom part and choose mp3 as the output format. Click the button “Convert to MP3”.

Besides MP3 format, you can also convert your Audible to M4B.


Heads up: When downloading audiobooks from Audible website, you can get audiobooks in two kinds of formats: AAX or AA. For audio quality, if you choose Format 4 type, the downloaded audiobooks will be in AA format. If you choose Enhanced type, the downloaded audiobooks will be in AAX format.


It’s very simple to convert AA files to MP3. You just need to just add the AA files into Epubor Audible Converter interface and click the convert button. Epubor Audible Converter will help you easily unlock and convert Audible books at the same time.

Since it takes one more step and longer time to decrypted AAX files than AA files, we suggest the users download Audible audiobooks in Format 4 rather than Enhanced type if you just want to convert Audible into mp3.
