Is this the app -- Audiobook Player?

That looks like it, yes. Been using it since my Lumia 920. I find it works very well (I don't have Windows Phone anymore, I also updated my Lumia 920 to Windows 10 Mobile, so no idea how it works on Windows Phone...)

Got my first set of bluetooth headphones, using them with my Nokia 520, listening to an Audible book. So far it's been flawless. I'm a fan!

I tried Bluetooth headphones for when doing housework. I still have them. I don't use them because they make me ill. I can literally feel the waves or whatever they are. Hubby has same pair as me and feels nothing when using them. I'm sensitive I guess.

For housework, I can almost always find a corner, wall or cabinet from which my phone speakers can project adequately, unless I'm vacuuming. Gotta admit I'm skeptical about nausea from certain radio frequencies and/or EM fields, but your experience is your experience, and regardless if the physical symptoms are from actual interaction with the device or anxiety based on your thoughts about the device, it's rarely as easy as "mind over matter," or "mind over mind."

Why would I have anxiety about them? I never used bluetooth headphones before that. Didn't even understand how they worked till I kept getting ill with each use. My ears would get hot and pink and I would get a headache. It felt like when your head is getting a catscan but on a smaller scale.

I never got nauseated. I don't know where you got that idea. I said they made me ill and they do. I have used WiFi headphones without issues but Bluetooth I guess I'm sensitive.

I remember now why I stopped using my Clip Zip, The battery life is horrible. I have a couple audiobooks in WMV format and the Clips are the only device I have that plays them...So right in the middle of a book at the most important part it dies. *sigh*

My phones do not have this problem. I can get more than 8 hours out of listening.

I have a very nice bluetooth speaker which I use and can place anywhere. Phone speakers just never sound good to me (only in a pinch) and I really don't want to carry my phone with me at all times. So, I just place the phone on the bluetooth speaker and walk around. As the speaker is heavy and square and robust, I don't want to walk around with it ;P



The one advantage of that one: it has 4 speakers! (cube = 6 sides, one is the on/off switch, one is the location for the power cord, and the other 4 are speakers).

The Clip Sport or the AGPTek clips have much better battery life than the Zip--over 20 hours.

Do they do drm WMV though? It's pretty much an extinct format but Books on Board sold it for awhile. Even the Windows phone don't support this format.

Do you mean WMA? Unfortunately, they don't; they only play non-DRM WMA. Sorry.

Yes silly autocorrect. WMA. Had I known what a pain it would be I'd never had purchased them years ago.

You could probably find a freeware program to convert the files. Or SoundTaxi would do it ($20 and up).

listen to audiobooks list

Practically everything! I listen to audiobooks while driving, doing tasks around my home (grass/weeds/dishes/clothing) while at the same time showering, going to bed (on a 20 minute rest clock). I listen while doing humble assignments at work, ones that don't require perusing or composing). I listen to them at the supermarket, taking the canine for a stroll, at jury obligation (amid the holding up), while I look through Quora or Facebook. [Promotional link deleted- MODERATOR] I normal around 6 hours of listening for each day, more on ends of the week. Today is October 21 2017, and year to date I have listened to 73 audiobooks. I'm the most well perused individual I know!
