Audio Books and MP3 Players - A Perfect Couple?


Visitors: 1,611

Most of the Mp3 players’ manufacturers plan their product for the purpose of listening to music. However, in the past couple of years more and more MP3 players are used for listening to audio books. There is a difference between the needs using the MP3 players for audio books and for MP3 music. If you consider using your new MP3 player for listening to audio books take into account the following considerations:

1. Behavior after interruption – This is the most important consideration you should take into account. When listening to audio books not as listening to music, you want to continue listening from the point you have stopped and not from the beginning. Most MP3 player do not have the option to continue from the exact point in the audio book but from the beginning of the same file. However, some MP3 players do not have a continuation option and start from the beginning of the audio book after an interruption.

When you shop a new MP3 player check it – play an audio book, take off the batteries, then put the batteries back and check if the MP3 player start from the beginning of the same file or from the beginning of the audio book.

2. Memory – The required memory depends on the MP3 format of the audio book, the length of the audio book and the number of audio books you wish to upload to your MP3 player.

MP3 players usually come with a flash memory. You can add a memory card to most of the players. The minimum memory required is 128Mb (less will be enough for a short audio book of about 6 hours). Try getting the biggest memory possible of a combination of flash memory and memory card.

3. Volume – The loudness is one the main problems in relation with audio books. Some MP3 players have an annoying limitation of the high volume. Hence, It is almost impossible to listen to the audio book in a noisy surrounding as an airplane, train or a gym room. Our advice is to put the head phones in the shop and make sure there is a loud volume that will be sufficient for listening to audio books.

Yet, Most MP3 players make the experience of listening to an audio book far better than listening to audio books on CD and books on tape. Try it, you can even download free audio books and get a free MP3 player.
