Now, when all Kindle models are capable of playing Audible audiobooks, it’s high time to look at the best available headphones, earbuds, and portable speakers.
What you have to keep in mind is that Kindle e-readers don’t have a headphone jack. The only way to listen to Kindle audiobooks is via Bluetooth speakers and headphones.
The main advantage of Bluetooth headphones is that they are wireless. You are not limited by cables and irritated by cable mess. You can freely move around the room while the Kindle is lying on the table.
The main disadvantage of Bluetooth headphones is that you need to recharge them. Compared to the Kindle, which runs a few weeks on a single charge, you’ll need to find the power source every even day.
That’s why, in the list below, we’ve rounded up Bluetooth headphones and speakers that have the longest possible battery life.
Nevertheless, if you are going on a vacation to a distant cabin in the woods, and plan to listen to audiobooks via your Kindle, make sure to take the charger. You will need it.
One would ask: why should I listen to audiobooks via the Kindle if I can do it via Echo smart speaker? There are two reasons: you can’t download audiobooks to the speaker (so listening offline is not possible), and you probably won’t take it on your holidays.
What are the best headphones and speakers that you can use to listen to audiobooks from the Kindle? Let’s take a look.
