If you are an Audible user, you may notice that when you download an audiobook from Audible, the file extension will be AAX. What is AAX? It is the enhanced Audible file format developed by Audible. An AAX file contains not only basic information like its title but also images, bookmarks, chapter markers, etc.

But AAX is also a DRM-encrypted format, making only Audible-authorized players can play it. Maybe you are busy searching for an AAX player that can solve this issue. Don’t worry. I will introduce several AAX players for Windows/Mac/Android/iOS users respectively.

And instead of recommending you use what I’ve found, I will also show you a wonderful tool that can help you play AAX on any player or device. After that, you don’t need to have a particular player just for Audible audiobooks.

Part 1. Recommended AAX Player for Windows/Mac/Android/iOS

AAX Player for Windows

Audible App for Windows 10

Audible Windows 10 app is the official app released by Audible for users to listen to audiobooks. You can manage your Audible library and download all your Audible books for offline listening in this app. What’s more, you can change the listening speed depending on your need. Most importantly, it allows you to transfer your books to compatible MP3 players.

However, it has been removed from Microsoft Store and is unavailable now. Audible has announced that the Audible app for Windows 10 has been deprecated and can no longer be used to access Audible or listen to titles in your Library after July 31, 2022.

Windows Media Player

Using Windows Media Player as AAX Player

Windows Media Player is a default media player installed on all Windows platforms. You can not only listen to AA or AAX files on it, but also burn Audible to CD. After importing your Audible audiobooks into the program, you can manage the books by rating them.

AAX Player for Mac


Although there is no official Audible app for Mac computers, you can still listen to AAX files with some programs. iTunes is the pre-installed media player for Mac. You can purchase and listen to Audible books if you authorize your computer with Audible.

Apple Books

iTunes has been transitioned to Apple Books on new macOS platforms. They share some same features but are different. You can buy and manage both e-books and audiobooks. You can also set a sleep timer, change your listening speed, etc.

AAX Player for Android/iOS

Audible App for Android/iOS

The Audible app seems to be the only AAX player for both Android and iOS. It shares almost the same features as the Audible app for Windows 10 but has some differences. It just looks like some of your music streaming apps.

Using Audible App to Play AAX Files

But you should be aware that you’re not allowed to buy Audible audiobooks through the Audible app for iOS. Instead, you can do that on Audible for Android. In addition, newly downloaded Audible books are in AAXC format but not AAX now.

Part 2. How to Play AAX on Any Player or Device?

You may be not satisfied with the AAX player I’ve mentioned above because most of them are official apps. I have to admit that these AAX players do have many limitations as long as the file format is AAX. If you can get rid of the restriction, things will get much easier.

To state it more clearly, if you can remove the encryption from the books and convert them to other common audio formats, you can play AAX on any player or device. You don’t have to be trapped in AAX player anymore.

With the help of DumpMedia Audible Converter, you can easily do that. It is an easy-to-use program that can convert Audible AAX to non-encrypted MP3 files at a fast speed. What’s more, the software supports batch conversion. It will be perfect for you if you have a huge backup to convert.

DumpMedia Audible Converter will keep the 100% lossless audio quality of the original audiobooks. And it will maintain the ID3 tags and metadata information, including titles, authors, cover art, and so on, helping you manage your library more easily.

What surprises me is that it can split audiobooks into chapters and segments depending on your need. Usually, a whole title is too big to carry on the MP3 player or other portable devices. But with this converter, you can feel free to separate and import the piece you want to different devices.
