    I purchased the Air Awakens audiobook on Amazon, and downloaded the high-quality version in Audible (they offer both low and high bitrate audio for bandwidth reasons), but I have to say the audio quality is lacking.

    The audio sounds like it was encoded at 32kbps as opposed to the typical 64kbps Audible recordings. The dynamic range compression is overdone and things like soft whispers and parts of words that contain sibilance can barely be heard.

    Can you check if this was a problem with the original sound recording or if Amazon/Audible screwed up?

      Firstly, thanks for trying out the audiobook! Audible has strict quality guidelines that they adhere to and will actually reject audiobooks if they don’t meet. I know every audiobook goes through this (usually about a week long) manual approval process. Not being a sound editor myself, or an employee of Amazon, all I can say is that if it’s up there it met Audible’s guidelines at one point. Sorry I can’t be of more help!

    I love to read books, I’ve read this series twice and want to read through them again, but my work has become so busy requiring so much overtime that I simply don’t have the free time to do so. As such, I’ve started to pick-up audiobooks that I can play from my phone while I work. When I heard Air Awakens had been released, I dropped the Frankenstein book I was listening to and went straight to it.

    I absolutely loved it!

    Now, for the purpose of this comment: when will Fire Falling be released!? I need my audiobook fix! xD
