HEOS is a high-end Wireless Multi-Room Sound System launched by Denon. Denon's HEOS includes a range of great-sounding music players for your whole house. You can operate and control them using an app on your iOS or Android phone or tablet. With HEOS, you can listen to the audio in many rooms easily.

If you like listening to Audiobooks, you should have heard of Audible. This platform has over 20,000 audiobooks, interviews, podcasts, and other audio resources. Many people wonder does Audible is playable on HEOS? It's pitiful that HEOS now has not supported Audible. But it doesn't mean there's no way to play Audible books on HEOS. Here we will show you 2 ways to listen to Audible books on HEOS.

Method 1: Play Audible on HEOS through Bluetooth

Many HEOS devices come equipped with Bluetooth functionality, allowing you to easily connect your mobile devices and play Audible content. Before you start, grab your HEOS device manual or check the product specifications online to confirm that your specific model supports Bluetooth connectivity.

Step 1 Activate Bluetooth and Pair Your Devices

  1. Locate the power button on your HEOS speaker or receiver and turn it on.
  2. Use the HEOS app on your smartphone or tablet, or check the physical controls on your HEOS device to find the Bluetooth settings.
  3. On your smartphone or tablet, go to the settings menu and find the Bluetooth option.
  4. Toggle the Bluetooth switch to the "on" position. Your device will start searching for available Bluetooth devices.
  5. In the Bluetooth settings on your mobile device, you should see a list of available devices. Select your HEOS device from the list.
  6. Your HEOS device may emit a sound or display a confirmation message once the Bluetooth connection is established.

Step 2 Set Up Audible on Your Device

  1. Find the Audible app on your mobile device and open it.
  2. Browse your Audible library and select the audiobook you want to listen to.
  3. Check the Audible app settings to ensure it is set to play audio through the Bluetooth-connected HEOS device.
  4. Use the volume controls on your mobile device and the HEOS device to set a comfortable listening level.

Step 3 Play Audible on Your HEOS

  1. Press play on the Audible app, and you should hear your audiobook playing through your HEOS device via Bluetooth. Feel free to move around and enjoy the wireless experience.
  2. Go back to the Bluetooth settings on your smartphone or tablet.
  3. Find your HEOS device in the list of connected devices and select the option to disconnect.
  4. Now you're all set to enjoy your Audible audiobooks on your HEOS device through a Bluetooth connection.

Method 2: Play Audible on HEOS through USB Flash Drive

If you find yourself in situations with a weak or unstable network, playing Audible books on Denon HEOS through Bluetooth might not be the most reliable option. In such cases, leveraging the USB drive compatibility of HEOS devices provides a seamless offline alternative. Follow these steps to convert Audible books to MP3 and play them on HEOS using a USB flash drive:

To download Audible for offline playing, you can use ViWizard Audible Audiobook Converter. This app is capable of downloading and converting Audible to MP3, WAV, AAC, FLAC, etc., to remove the playing limit of Audible. After the conversion, you can play the converted Audible on multiple devices. ViWizard adapts new technology to raise the conversion speed to 30x faster and the audio can reach lossless quality. With this tool, you can also tune the audio parameters, like volume, bit rate, channel, sample rate, codec, and so on to customize your Audible audiobooks.

You must first download Audible files before converting them. If you have a Mac, you can use iTunes to download your Audible audiobooks.

Please find the AA or AAX files from your computer drive and drag them to the ViWizard Audible AA/AAX Converter in batch mode after downloading. You may also load the Audible files by clicking the Add button.

Step 2Pick Output Format and Parameters

  3. Select the audiobook you want to listen to and press play. HEOS will now play your Audible content directly from the USB flash drive.


To play Audible books on Denon HEOS devices, you can connect the HEOS device with your phone by Bluetooth. But when the network is bad, this way may be unworkable. To avoid this problem, you can play Audible on HEOS with a USB drive for offline playing. But before that, you need to convert Audible books to MP3 with ViWizard Audible Audiobook Converter.
