The previous year, Amazon’s the entry-level Kindle, the Kindle Oasis, and the latest Kindle Paperwhite were available with an additional Audible. This enabled the users to listen to their audiobook library. But this was only possible if the users had a pair of Bluetooth headphones connected. To overcome this issue, Amazon has now released the new Kindle package for the latest Kindle Paperwhite. The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 4 now comes with a new bundle, called the Audible Bundle. The Kindle Paperwhite Audible Bundle includes the waterproof Kindle Paperwhite and a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones. Alongwith this, a starter subscription gold membership for Audible audiobooks for a period of three months is also included.
Cost of the new Amazon Kindle
The cost of the Amazon Kindle varies depending on its storage capacity as follows:
- $139 for the 8GB Kindle
- $169 for the 32GB Kindle
Benefits of the new Audible Bundle
The world’s best leading provider of audiobooks along with original audio series, comedy, podcasts and many more can easily be accessed. The new Audible Bundle allows this when paired with Bluetooth headphones.
The Audible membership provides the user with three free credits in the first three months. It includes a free app, exclusive sales, hassle-free returns, and automatic bookmarking. This allows the user to listen across all their devices. However, if you don’t cancel after the three month trial period, it will auto-renew at $14.95 per month. This will include a pair of free original titles from the publisher and a credit once a month.
According to Amazon, their over-the-ear headphones provided with the Audible Bundle are better than any other ones. They said, “Our POP Design headphones have built in features for Kindle Audible and Audible Audiobooks App controls as well as the standard music and calling features. With a range of 30 feet, you are free to move about while listening to your favorite books. Pair with your favorite Kindle with Audible capabilities to listen to your favorite audio books.”
These Bluetooth headphones alone are selling for a price of $79. Without the headphones, the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 4 costs $129. Therefore, the all new Audible Bundle is a pretty good, cost effective deal.
Other features of the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite has a battery life of 16 hours, and a recharge time of 2-3 hours. You can easily connect the over-the-ear headphones to your device due to its Bluetooth 4.0 technology. The Bluetooth headphones consist of a 40mm Dynamic Driver. This enables full rich sound while enjoying your favorite movie or music or any intense audiobook chapters. Majority of the reviews on these headphones are affirmative, with many saying they were initially doubtful because of the price. However, the reviews show that the sound quality is really good.
