It was comparable to my previous AGPTEK (discontinued model). It came in a different color and had 16gb internal memory as opposed to the previous 8gb; I didn't notice any other differences. I had it such a short time that I never tried Bluetooth or any other features except straightforward playing of audiobooks.

My brand-new AGPTEK just died. I connected it to my PC, left it plugged in for maybe 10 minutes or so while deciding what audiobook files to transfer, and then saw that the computer wasn't recognizing it and, more alarmingly, that it had gotten hot to the touch.

When I disconnected it wouldn't power on, even after it cooled off. It will power on when connected to a wall charger, but then turns off, and begins getting hot again. Looks like the date/time have reset to zero; no idea if my files on it have been disappeared.

Since it's still in the 30-day return window, I'm having Amazon replace it, though I'm a little leery and a lot annoyed. Funny thing is, just this morning I put the box it came in into the recycling bin. Oops.
Sounds like the battery is shot. I had the battery replaced in my iPhone 6s by Apple and the battery they put in started swelling.

A friend of mine just had the battery swell up in a Mac laptop.

If I'm walking, in the car, or at the office I use a phone that no longer has service with my bluetooth headphones. At home a lot I use my Echo Show. The Echo Show syncs with audible book progress, and if using Scribd at home I use the backup phone's bluetooth connection to Echo Show to play via the speakers in the house.

And for those times when on computer, I play through computer speakers streaming while doing other stuff.

Apache, how do you get your audible.com ebooks to your FIIO. Or do you use audiobooks from somewhere else?

My FiiO has an Android OS and WIFI. I listen to Audible through the Audible App and Bluetooth. I have Sonos speakers in my store and use the Sonos App to access my Audible Account.

I have been looking at the FiiO devices. The m11 is above my $$$ but the m6 looks like it may be capable enough for me. Will check it out some more. I think it too can download the audible app...looks like that is on the whitelist. Thanks for your input .

Glad to help. My Onkyo died and when Squaretrade couldn't fix it I changed to the M11. The Onkyo had doubled in price in the almost three years I had it. I decided to spend the extra to get the M11.

After too much internet searching I am now looking at the Sony Walkman a55 for music and audible books. But A55 does not do audible files. Is there some way that I can convert the audible files on my computer? I would appreciate some information on this or guidance on where to look. I have been an audible subscriber for almost 20 years and have many many audio books from them.
