Iambik Audiobook Formats

All Iambik audiobooks are sold as online downloads. Our audiobooks are available in mp3 format.

MP3: mp3 is the common format for audio. It can be played on almost all mp3 players, including iPods. Mp3 files of our audiobooks are separated by chapter, meaning that you will have one file per chapter of the book (longer chapter might be split into 2 or more files). This makes it easier to jump from one chapter to the next.

The download will come in a .zip file, which is a compressed folder. If you need help openig the .zip, see the instructions below.
