Specifications

Audiobooks.com is a web-based subscription service that gives you access to hundreds of audio book titles that you can stream right from the web. It will work on any device that can connect to the Internet including Android devices and the iPhone. A monthly subscription is $24.95 for unlimited access.

In Use

I like to read, however, I have never tried audio books before. My dad likes audio books and listens to them all the time because he drives for a living. When the folks at Audiobooks.com dropped me a line to find out if I might want to try their recently launched audio books subscription service I figured I'd give it a chance.

I don't have a lot of time these days to read other than when I'm sitting in front of my kid's school waiting for the bell to ring. The problem for me and reading books is that I tend to fall asleep and always end up with a crick in my neck from looking down at the book. I didn't have any of those problems with audio books. The books are cool too with high-quality voice actors doing the reading and background music. I had expected someone just reading the book and was surprised to see that there were different voices and music with some titles.

The cool part is that while $24.95 per month may seem expensive, it's actually a raging bargain. I bought my dad a new audio book for Christmas and spent $20 for a single title that he would listen to in a couple of days and be finished with. With Audiobooks.com you can listen to as many books as you want for as long as you want. The other good part is you take no risk with a title you are not sure about since you can't lose money if you don't like the book.

The system tracks where you stop listening to the book and synchronizes that with your account so no matter what device you access the book with; you are at the same place. In my testing, I used my Android smart phone and the playback of the audio was smooth and jitter free. The streamed audio was also loud enough that I can easily hear using my smartphone speaker. The only potential downside is this requires either Wi-Fi or data connection to operate. If your plan has limited data, the service could very well put you over your allotted amount of data.

Verdict

Pros

  • Listen all you want
  • Hundreds of audio books

Cons

  • Requires a data connection or Wifi
 

Conclusion

Audiobooks.com is a great service for fans of audio books unless you listen all you want for one monthly fee and it works great on just about any device.
