I have narrowed the search down to just 5 devices worth looking at.

1. Apple iPod Touch 4th/5th Gen


iPod Touch – Best MP3 Player For Audio Books
The iPod touch is an amazing device that does so much more than just play audiobooks.You can watch movies, play games, download podcasts, take photos and videos and surf the internet over your local Wifi or Bluetooth connection.

  • Battery Life Details: Music playback – up to 40 hours
  • Supported Digital Audio Standards: WAV, AAC, AIFF, Audible, MP3, Apple Lossless, HE-AAC, Audible AAX, Audible AAX+, protected AAC

That is also why I have rated the iPod touch above any other MP3 Audiobook Player out there.

2. Samsung Galaxy Player
Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 – The Second Best MP3 Player for Audiobooks. Samsung are producing great products and the Android platform is very comparable to the iPod platform. In some aspects it is even better (eg. Google integration).
Access to the Google Play store means you can download a variety of audiobook apps – most notably the Audible Audiobook App

  • Battery Life: up to 60 hours of audio playback
  • Supported Digital Audio Standards: WAV, WMA, AAC, MPEG 1 Audio, MPEG 2 Audio, MPEG 2.5 Audio, AMR, MP3, FLAC, AC-3, AAC-LC, AAC +, OGG, eAAC+

One of the major flaws is that there is no access to iTunes. So great for audiobooks if you use Audible, but useless if you are using iTunes as your audiobook platform.

3. Apple iPod Nano 7th Generation
So small it can fit in your pocket, but powerful enough to store all your audiobooks.

  •  Flash Memory: 16 GB
  • Supported Digital Audio Standards: WAV, AAC, AIFF, Audible, MP3, Apple Lossless, HE-AAC, Audible AAX, Audible AAX+, protected AAC
  • Battery Life Details: Music playback – up to 30 hours


4. Sandisk Sansa
The Sansa Clip+ MP3 player supports the most popular audio formats, including MP3, WMA, secure WMA, Audible, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC. Simple to use buttons that allow you to easily access and navigate your way through the device without too much hassle.

  • Digital Storage Capacity: 8 GB, Store up to 2000 songs
  • Memory card slot for pre-loaded cards up to 32GB.
  • Rechargeable battery lasts up to 15 hours
  • Built-in clip for easy carrying

Simply insert a preloaded microSD or microSDHC card, and you’ll be ready to play music, podcasts, or audio books in seconds–with no waiting for downloads and no computer required.

5. Creative Sansa-Fuse

The Sansa-Fuse looks great, is fairly intuitive and is an all-round recent MP3 player. The biggest issue I have with this product (and other cheaper MP3 players) is their lack of integration with Audiobook Apps. This makes accessing your audiobooks harder and you are required to download the file to your computer and then transfer to your device.

But if you are looking for something that isn’t too expensive and something that does the job then this is a great option.
