To see exactly what differences are all about, I launched the three tools and discovered that TunesKit Audiobook Converter and NoteBurner iTunes DRM Audio Converter not only convert audiobook files purchased from iTunes but also transfer audiobooks sold on audible.com, while TunesKit Audible Converter only works on removing DRM protection from audible.com. Besides, TunesKit Audiobook Converter and TunesKit Audible Converter both simply add DRM-protected audiobook files, either by adding files directly or dragging audiobook files into this area, while the input paths of NoteBurner iTunes DRM Audio Converter are a bit different, which cannot drag audiobook files into this area, but just need do a click to choose the files what we want to convert.

TunesKit Audiobook Converter is able to work at 30X faster speed in converting a DRMed audiobook to unprotected formats, which costs $34.95.
