Part 2. Method to Keep Audible Books after Returning

As an Audible member, you can return audiobooks you are not completely satisfied with and choose another. However, you cannot continue to listen to this title once you return even though you download the title to your device before returning. It is because that all books from Audible are encoded in the format of AA or AAX files protected by Digital Right Managements.

So, how to keep Audible books after returning? To do so, the best method is to convert Audible books to DRM-free audio format files before returning. Here you do need the help of a third-party tool like Tunelf Audio Converter. It is a special audio converter that can not only convert common audios to another but also extract audios from Audible, Apple Music, and iTunes with the original audio quality.
