Besides the Kindle devices listed above, Audible audiobooks are also compatible with Fire phone, Kindle for Android, Kindle for Samsung, the Audible apps for iOS/Android/Windows, Audible software for PC and Mac, and MP3 players and other devices compatible with Audible's file format.

Because there’s no headphone jack in Kindle Oasis 2, you can’t use ordinary wired headphones to listen to audiobooks. Instead, you need to connect your All-New Kindle Oasis to Bluetooth-enabled speakers or headphones.

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

In addition to MP3, you can also convert your Audible to AC3, AAC, M4A, M4B, FLAC, OGG, AIFF, WMA, and WAV formats.
