Audible memberships: How much do they cost?


Owned by Amazon, Audible offers one of the largest selections of audiobook libraries online. With apps available for iOS, Android, and Windows devices, just about anyone can access this library once they sign up for a membership. Additionally, members get access to other audio content like Audible Originals and Audible's library of ad-free audio shows.

But how much does a membership cost? Audible offers two different membership types, Gold and Platinum, which we detail below. Fortunately, you can try either level out for free for the first 30 days, which includes one free audiobook. And if you decide Audible just isn't for you, cancel your membership at anytime.
