How to convert Audible books to MP3 on Windows 10

Audible lets subscribers listen to books on any platform and on all platforms. The app has a built-in feature that allows users to download titles to their device’s local store. The file itself however is in proprietary format meaning that it cannot be played without the Audible app.

Audible property format prevents piracy, as it should. The download feature makes it so that users do not need an active internet connection to listen to the books they have purchased and the file format keeps them from being freely shared.
